I’ve found this post, but it’s an L405 v6, but it finishes by saying the 4.4 sensor is easy because it is external.

Cost c£70 ?

If this helps, dash message with cold engine and bonnet shut and working level indicator.





Also, if your battery is getting wet, there is a scuttle drain pipe which should be fitted to the bottom of the drain, indicated with a yellow circle. This takes water away from the batttery. Also perhaps seals around engine bay leaking in that area.

Pic of sensor location, obviously upside down





Just caught your other thread, and I think Mike's (Baltic Blue) and Stan's ideas of fuses and voltage should be your first port of call.

If your battery is getting wet, a thorough clean of all contcts/connectors in that area may help. These beasties are easy prey for electrical gremlins. Cheers

Thanks rjff that is the picture I was looking at last night but was unable to post because I am using an internet connection so slow I think it must be via carrier pigeon,
but now other symptoms are being discussed like temperature sensor, wet battery.... it’s time to get the AVO out and the wiring diagram. Bow down

A big thanks to everyone for helping me. The pictures and suggestions are a great help. With regards to the water leak the drain channel in the top right hand corner, adjacent to the wing is unblocked. However when it rains, the water runs over the top of the gully in the trim and onto the battery. Any suggestions on how to remove would be great.

In my photo you can just see the drain tube in the dark recesses of the battery compartment. Make sure that is properly connected to the bottom of the drain fitting circled and is not blocked somewhere along it length. Mine was, and let the water build up until it overflowed onto the battery. I used a strimmer cable as you would a drain rod. Worth checking the driver's side too. Cheers

rjff... my dad bought me an AVO 8 as a gift for passing my C&G full tech, and it is still in regular use nearly 50 years on.
Best meter ever... Thumbs Up
