Look at the "Active Check control" diagrams.
Static oil level: Blue/Violet..... Blue/White
Dynamic oil level: Blue/White ..... Blue/Yellow
Don't have access to the car at this moment, did some reading and I remember the e34 had 3 wires and the e28 has 2 wires. Would the extra wire on the e34 be ground? but the reason why the e28 only has 2 wires is because it's grounded through the oil pan separately?
It seams so, although the diagram indicates it is not case grounded. 0670-10 (ground distribution) denotes that the oil level sensor is grounded by wire to G102 (at the fender), while 6216-2 (active check control) displays it is grounded by wire to G103 (engine ground).AJ wrote:... but the reason why the e28 only has 2 wires is because it's grounded through the oil pan ... ?
