Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If the low oil alarm is going off but the level is good then check the harness and sensor for a problem. Is this low oil level or low oil pressure? If low oil pressure verify actual oil pressure is okay with a mechanical gauge and if so, check the harness and sensor. Click this link for the operation manual for FYI. Let me knowoperation Manual
