    the red oil symbol, followed by 3 beeps is low oil pressure, which isnt a great thing to say the least.

    Could the low oil pressure be due to thin oil,I checked the oil again and it seems to be very thin and over the max for some reason

    Check the oil return pipe from the sump, perhaps it's blocked up majorly. Failing that, oil pump going / gone? :S
