Oil red light showing on dashboard with beeping sound..what does that mean


It is a warning for oil pressure. Stop, don't drive, check oil level on the dipstick, if it's ok, check to see if the connector on the oil sender unit has not come loose and is touching somewhere in the engine. It could also be a faulty oil sender. If all this is "Greek" to you, get a mechanic to check it out

If oil pressure sensor is bad could it damage my vehicle further


It's a warning light system that no oil pressure exists. If it doesn't work, it won't cause damage, you just won't know if and when your oil pressure is lost. The sensor or sender unit is very inexpensive on most vehicles, like under $10.
All the sender does is cause the oil light to go off when it detects minimal pressure. A valve inside the sender moves and causes the sender to stop grounding the warning light, and so the light goes off.

Gauges work fine when engine's started, then oil gauge falls below zero and warning light comes on saying "Check gauges," so I check the oil and transmission fluid levels and these are fine but...


start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

Replace your oil pressure sender and see if the dash warning lights turn off. If after changing the oil pressure sender you still have oil pressure warning lights on, you may have to replace your oil pump in your oil pan.

Sender can only be replaced. If you actually have a problem relating to oil you will see the temperature gauge rise well into the danger zone. As long as operating temp is normal you can relax when driving and get sender changed at your leisure.

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.

1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo oil pressure low on ilde


I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

I have a 2002 Cherokee 2.4 sport petrol engine Jeep. Recently the oil warning light ( red) on the dash board stays permanantly on. The oil level checks OK and the engine appears to be running OK. Could it...


Oil pressure sending unit should be located somewhere near the oil filter. check that the wire is attached to it and is not grounded. If engine is not making any tapping noises chances are that the sender is bad. If after changing it, the problem persists, put a mechanical gauge on the system (attach where sender is) and read actual oil pressure (should be no lower than 15psi when hot but I prefer better than 20 hot at idle, 40-50 running at 2000rpm)
