Question about Peugeot 206
There s/b a finite resistance between pins 1 and 2. Even if this is so, the sensor can still be defective. I suggest that, if the dipstick shows full, and you're getting a Low Oil message, merely replace the sensor. It's a known, but rare, failure. You'll need to drain the oil, and replace the O-ring.
Continuity is used to check that a circuit is continuous, and not broken. It does not measure resistance. Example: an electrical fuse to see if it is truly blown.
Resistance is a measure of the impeding of current flow. In the case of the level sensor, the resistance element heats the sensor.
Diode test is to determine if a diode is defective; one polarity actually measures the junction voltage, and the other polarity shows nothing, which indicates that the diode is working.
