  1. 9-5 V6 shuts down

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2001 9-5 V6 Wagon that shuts down with an exclamation mark showing the battery and oil icons on the dash. I've recently changed the oil and changed it again thinking it may be a bad oil filter causing the low oil pressure to come on. I have also replaced the belt and battery in the...
