    When I turn the ignition the ignition on the MFA displays "OIL LEVEL SENSOR - WORKSHOP" and flashes an orange oil light at me for about 8 seconds regardless of whether the cars is running or not. I scanned for codes but found none. Does this mean the sender is bad or a break in wiring? TIA

    While making my way back to Jersey from Philly yesterday, I realized I took the wrong exit. I threw it in reverse and backed up for about a mile and a half. All seemed fine until I threw it in first and took off when moments later, I heard a chime. The MFD read something to the effect of...
