punto 1.9 JTD, digital Oil -level check at ignition switch on

When I bought my 2nd hand mk2 2000 fiat punto 1.9 JTD, it came with the manual, which stated, that on a 1.9 JTD, there was an oil level check, which would come up if you turned the key in "ignition" (not starting just yet) and after a few seconds, some blocks would appear where normaly it's odometer would be, and on the left hand side it would say "OIL".

However, I've tried and tried but can't seem to see this OIL message coming up.

Am I doing something wrong or was this feature not implemented on all punto JTD's?

Re: punto 1.9 JTD, digital Oil -level check at ignition switch on

In the dutch manual it is on page 28, about the "Trip Computer". Just after the part about the "LED Error".

It says (and I translate):

Function Oil Level Check (1.9 JTD edition)

The system checks the oil level.

While the engine is switched off turn the key to MAR. The display will show the time and odometer reading for a few moments. Then during 10 seconds the oil-level will be shown. While the oil-level is displayed the information about the headlight adjustment disapears.

This is the dutch page from the manual (made a picture with my cellphone; sorry for the crappy blurry picture):
