    Most probably the float in the bottle is stuck, failed, or the wires to it have become detached.

    Check the connector first of all to make sure it is not loose or has become detached. If it is connected take it off and spray the conectors with contact cleaner. Once refitted if that makes no difference then get a new float and swap it out. A new float is a few quid from Vauxhall. If that does not work then there is another underlieing issue.

    If all else fails just cut the wires at the plug and connecto them together to complete the circuit. That will put the warning off permanently but will mean you will not be warned.
