I've only got a picture of my attempt to hack it onto my car - I've read that it takes something like 50-100 miles for the car to calibrate itself to the level sensor's readings, so I'm going to give it a couple days.Got any pix of the CSL setup? There are plenty of DIY's to add VDO gauges for oil, water temp, etc. Might look more OEM than the VDO setup.
Not like I'm spending money on getting it to work. I don't check my dipstick everyday - and since my car has yet to burn a drop of oil, I get rather lazy about checking the dipstick. With the electronic measurement, theoretically I'll know if I'm running low even while I'm driving.Open hood. Remove dipstick. Save money. Never breaks.
Clusters are the same, oil level/temp sensors are the same. The CSL has two different modes for checking the oil level - one's a long-term read where it collects data over a long time to check. The other's a "quick read" which is supposed to be activated by letting the engine idle for a couple minutes and then pressing/holding the sport button.I wonder if the CSL cluster has a different part number and reads a bit in the ecu when you select that page... or its possible the CSL tune just has that enabled. You could start with a part number search. Our cars are interesting with the can-bus modules and how they share data.
:excited: wow that would be pretty cool. i have to say you are very good with the software tricks on our cars :thumbup:I've only got a picture of my attempt to hack it onto my car - I've read that it takes something like 50-100 miles for the car to calibrate itself to the level sensor's readings, so I'm going to give it a couple days.
It doesn't read the absolute level either. It reads anywhere from "0.0L" to "+1.1L". 0.0 is supposed to correspond to the "minimum" mark on the dipstick, and 1.1 is suppose to correspond to slightly overfilled.
