    Is it asking to be serviced?

    What year is the car?

    On mine, switch the ignition to position 1 and set the cluster to show total mileage. Then press the trip reset button 3 times quite quickly. It should beep and the cluster display changes to an engineering mode.
    Scroll through the pages and one of them has oil ---- at the bottom.
    Turn the ign to position 2 and it'll tell you the oil level.

    Sounds a palaver but after a few times it's easy.
