It is all there in the FSM, but the wiring inside the cluster is more difficult to find.

What's an FSM?

I may get the meter out and see what I can find but it feels like maybe a lot of effort Vs the cost of a replacement cluster. Unless replacing it doesn't cure it of course

Here is a list of them and some part numbers..

And then there is google.

And then there is different more or less illegal sites that might or might not be infested with virus.. Not recommended!

So I replaced the instrument panel but still have no oil warning or EML :(

I’ve perused as many manual files as I can find but haven’t been able to find any details of wire colours going to the instrument panel.

My thinking is to maybe just wire up a new oil warning light on the dash somewhere and live without the EML

I have exactly the same problem. How did you resolve it?

I haven't yet. I bought a new oil light which I'm going to wire directly to the switch at some point soon.

Because my car previously suffered a rat or mouse infestation There's a good chance there was a part chewed wire further behind the dash than I can easily see. I don't know if the oil light comes via the ECU or what so tracking it down vs wiring a new LED seems an easy choice in my case.

I would guess you've checked the bulbs? They're easy to get to. Checking the bulbs then testing the switch was my starting place. Because it's neither of these on mine it's more complicated - annoyingly

My cluster was broken from disconnecting a Bluetooth adapter from the diagnose connector while the car was running. Stupid of course.

My brake warning light was on constantly and some of the others may have been out dunno. Changing the cluster helped.

But I was able to find the wires in the FSM and measure the signals going into the cluster. I could switch the ignition on without the cluster connected to measure at the connectors.
