Dash warning lights

Recommended Posts

I have a 1981 mk3 escort xr3 and during every start the brake pad warning light and oil level low lights flash 13 times then go out.

The brake pad wear sensors have been removed before my ownership and I have traces down the 2 wires in the main loom which have been cut but regardless if I complete the circuit or leave it open the warning still does its 13 flashes?

I looked into the oil level low warning light and found out there wasnt a sensor fitted to this engine from factory so other than the dip-stick there isn't any other way to check oil level. The oil pressure light and sensor works correctly.

Any info great full

If I remember correctly the oil level sensor on the cvh escort engines were built into the dipstick. The dipsticks had wires coming out of the top which break off. Hope I have not imagined this memory.
