Done oil change & oil filter done oil sensor & red light coming on after 20 mins. Can u help?


Since there are various different warning lights exactly which warning light is appearing after 20 minutes?

If it is the oil service warning light that is appearing then that has to be reset manually when the oil service is done.

Ive got a honda accord ,both keys are on the same key ring and if i put the key in the ignition the green key light kn the dash starts to flash, both keys do the same


What shape is the light? Where on the dash? Check your owners manual to see exactly which light on the dash that is. It may be an oil change lamp reminding you to have your regular service done. The dealer or a good Honda mechanic can reset that light after they change your oil.

What does the red oil light mean on 1998 deville. also car has oil in it. stop engine now light came on too. Why ?


If your oil light is on, it means that the control module thinks there is no oil pressure. It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit, or it could be that the oil pump is out and that the engine is actually not getting oil. The engine would need to have a mechanical gauge put on to find out if it does have pressure.

Where exactly is the oil sending unit?


It does not send oil anywhere. It simply tells your dash gauge what the oil pressure is. It either registers by lbs. or by turning a red light on.

RED LIGHT INDICATING OIL SERVICE


Hi. The oil service light in red indicates that the vehicle is over due for a vehicle service..OIL SERVICE.. If you don't have it done, it could all go wrong. Have the light reset after Service and then it will monitor for your next service.bye for now.

Service engine soon light


The service engine soon could be an indicator that you need to have minor maintenance done in the near future. I had a Grand Am that the service engine light would turn on when I was getting close to needing an oil change. You might check your owners manual for an exact reason as to why it turns on.

I HAVE A LIGHT ON MY DASH ITS A ORANGE OIL CAN


Check the fluid level and change the oil if you've used the car 3,000 mi. or more.

Usually low oil pressure lights are red and are more serious than the amber lights.

Red oil light flashing, oil change no problem but light still flashing noise coming from tappets are they related I have a problem on my vw jetta ? flashing light on my dash


Yes it is related, don't drive it. First thing you should do is install a new oil filter even if it isn't time for an oil change.
