Elcetronic Oil Level Display

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone has any ideas here. . .

I have a X1 xDrive 20d (UK), and I cannot get it to display the electronic oil level readout. I am sure I remember having this shown to me during the handover of the car, but if I flick the rocker up / down on the indicator stalk I never see an option for Oil.

I have re-read the manual several times, and I cannot think what I could be doing wrong - I see all the other options displayed on the dashboard, but never see the option for Oil. I am sure I must be doing something stupid, or missing the obvious - appreciate any pointers.

Thankfully the X1 still does have a real dipstick in the engine bay, so I have been checking that.

Thanks, Jon.

If your car has a dipstick in the engine bay, then probably there is not display for the oil level on the On Board Computer.
My previous BMW 116i E87 LCI did not have a dipstick, that' s why it had electronic display.
My present MINI R56 Cooper has a dipstick and doesn't have electronic display.
To be sure, see the manual of your car or ask your dealer.

Thanks for the replies. The manual does refer to the electronic oil check display, and I am 90% sure the dealer showed me it at handover.

Ah well, will check with the dealer when I am passing next.
