Oil Level Sensor

Just wondering if anyone has heard of this issue or has had it.

In last two months on odd occasion when its cold approx below 2C randomly the car flags low oil level warning on the dash. The yellow oil can.

Even if the oil is on max it does this. If you ignore it it goes away or if you turn car on / off again disappears only to return randomly again.

Does it sometimes as you start the car or after 50 - 100 miles of driving there is no pattern to it.

The only pattern is the temp. If outside temps are past 5C it has never done it as soon as they get close to 0 or below it starts doing it.

It looks like the sump sensor is up the fritz so will have to wait until next oil change just wondering if anyone else has come across it.
