    Default Oil Level Warning Light

    Hi to all

    I have a 2006 '06 facelift SRI 1.8VVT. During the past week, the yellow oil level warning light has come on a few times whilst driving. On each occasion, I've stopped the car and checked the oil level, however every time the oil level is up to the maximum on the dipstick

    No water in the oil, and no oil leaks evident anywhere. On restarting the engine straight after checking the oil, the light is still on; however if the car is left overnight the light is off.

    Oil & filter were last changed 6 weeks ago just after I bought the car, using genuine synthetic Vx oil & filter; also flushed beforehand. Previous oil had been in for 20k and was fairly manky.

    Could this be a faulty sensor? If so is it a straightforward replacement? Where is the sensor located?

    Any advice/suggestions gratefully received.

    Many thanks in advance
