AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 8 months ago

Hello there,

I've seen two things that cause this.

The first is the wiring for the sensor can have a poor crimp on the terminals.

We back out the terminals and solder the crimps, and reassemble the connector.

The second is I have seen a sensor replaced that was fitted upside-down in the sump.

Produced exactly as you have described.

Drive for short period, warning comes on, turn off, start up ok, drive again for short period, warning comes up again.

Hope this helps.

Gary
