Thanks for reporting back. Yes it is a bad design. More like an afterthought. Instead of providing individual sense circuits, they provided only one, and some voltage coded signal to determine the status of the levels. Probably some bug in the Instrument cluster firmware too. At least it is a relatively cheap fix.
