Low oil level warning
I have a 2011 Touareg TDI and had the emissions recall done along with the add blue recall. Prior to this I was getting an add oil message. When it was checked the oil level was fine. At the dealer when the recalls were getting done they explained this fault message by telling me it was the hood sensor switch needed replacing because it tells the vehicle when the hood is open(for incorrect closing), which makes sense but doesn't make sense for oil level. I might add there is no actual dipstick in the vehicle(apparently done by sensors).
They want $262 CAD for the part, and I am unsure if this is necessary.
Has anyone had issues with this and can anyone explain this situation further please
