    My warm up lights seem to come down to 1 orange light incredibly quickly.

    Ideally I want the lights to only come down to 1 orange when the oil temp is up to about 70°. At the moment they’re down to 1 orange within a couple of minutes driving from a cold start-up, whereas the oil, even in hot summer weather, takes around 10 minutes to get up to temp.

    I’m assuming this be changed through NCS Expert? How tricky is it and which module should I look at? I’ve done a bit of coding in NCS; nothing more than making my reverse mirror tilt remember a position though.
