Whole thing.
Oil warning comes on when you're 1 quart low. And you bought one quart of oil

read the manual and see how you check the oil level. Then you can see it on the display.

+1. The warning should mean one quart low - but double checking the OBC level reading is a good idea. The car must be warmed up to get a reading.
