Re: My low oil level light comes on
I presume that motor has a few miles on it. possibly the motor is so worn that it can't maintain a decent oil pressure. quick fix is to add heavier oil which hopefully will last for abit. be careful if you are in a cold climate as the thicker oil will make it harder to crank over in the winter.
On my 2000 gtp my low oil dummy light was on due to the wires being cut from the oil pressure sending unit....like an 02 sensor type style plug hanging out of the oil pan....sending unit could be bad also....

1. Check your oil level. If oil level is not ok, correct oil level and find out why oil level was low and correct the problem. (Leaks, bad PCV, Burning oil due to severe engine wear, nobody has bothered to check it for the last 3000 miles, WAY overdue for an oil change, etc.) If oil level is ok, proceed to next step.
2. Remove the oil pressure sensor and install a manual oil pressure gauge. Run engine to verify low oil pressure. If gauge shows that the oil pressure is low, overhaul or replace engine. If oil pressure is ok, replace oil pressure sending unit and retest.
Did you check the oil? If it is full, there is something wrong with the sending unit. The oil light is not for oil level but for pressure, it will still read 60 lbs pressure with 1 qt of oil in there. So, if everything checks out, you will need to replace the sending unit, usually found near the filter, sometimes on the pump itself or on the side of the engine, down low, looks like a temp plug with a wire stuck to it. Hope this helps.
The oil level is probably too low, get an oil change, not only will they fill up your oil and change the filter, but if something is more seriously wrong they will bring it to your attention. Plus an oil change is cheap insurance.
There are seperate resistors for the different speeds. No resistors means the fan runs on the highest speed. Sounds like the resitor pack is bad or there may be a wiring issue.
Because the driver info screen isn't working may mean a wiring problem. I have a similar problem in that my low oil level light comes on. I can get it to go off (after checking the oil level) by starting the car, shutting it off, then restarting it. I was told to replace the wiring harness after replacing the level switch didn't fix the problem.
