Hmmm Oil warning with plenty of oil!

Just got a rude message in my 156 1.9 jtd 115bhp telling me I am low on oil and to go to a dealer. Checked the oil and there is loads, if anything too much. Having stopped and restarted, the car now admits that it was wrong and all warnings have gone.

Anybody had similar problem? Should I just put it down to an Alfa glitch. Only had the car a month.

Mine does it every so often when I'm waiting for the pre-start glow plug system to warm up, it's just an Alfa glitch and nowt to worry about.

Re: Oil warning with plenty of oil!

had the exact same problem on my JTD although a 140bhp. it also affected the digital milemeter which flicked and the trip computer which shows your average mpg always reset to zero along with the date and time always going back to 1st Jan 00:00.
the dealer claimed there wasn't find a problem until i forced them to keep the car for two days. they eventually replaced the speedometer and I have not had a problem since.
