Hi all

How do I see my oil levels! I know where to find them but it comes up unavailable all the time. Driving or standing still.

Think you need to leave it for 10 mins after a drive on level ground and check after 10mins or so.

I checked mines yesterday

You should be able to get a reading before start-up, too.

Scroll through the Info Menu, to Vehicle Info > Oil Level 👍

I can view my oil level before I start it, though parking on an uphill slope it always tells me it's underfilled. You must be on dead level ground to get an accurate reading.

Maybe they've changed things depending on the MY?

Had mine about 2 months now and had the same problem. As someone above said, leaving for 10 minutes on level ground did the trick.

Silly question: you did switch on the ignition without your foot on the brake pedal before trying to check it?

You can check it without the drive and 10 minute thing by opening the bonnet which puts it in service mode. Bare in mind it will show on the lower scale as it will be cold. Do not top it up to max on cold or it will be overfilled.

Really? Service mode is activated through the remote app. There's a procedure involving pressing the CAN button twice to show the real time level.
