    Seat Alhambra 20VT 2001
    Ona long journey, got stuck in traffic queue, oil warning lamp blinked with beeps could stop solid 2 lanes no pull off, kept going slowly light coming & going engine was fine stopped at services oil a bit low on dip stick. I topped up ran engine no obvious noises engine fine. Continued journey 80+ miles more light flashing beeps occasionally, but running fine. Got RAC to check, very deep scan only problems DTC's 17852 EGR valve, 16500 coolant temp circuit range/performance problem. Engine running fine.Codes deleted.
    Next had to travel initially no light but came on when slowing down after longer fast run. Seems to be a temperature 'thing' (gauge temp 90 degs no higher) 500 mile on no problem apart from light. Problem now to track down the sensor causing the 'lamp signal' any ideas?

    Well that didn't get any answers but it was the sump oil level sensor - replaced & the problem went away. Disappointing lack of answers from the Forum have we lost our'experts' or is my Alhambra too old?
