It will take 6 quarts to read full on the dipstick after the oils drained and the oil filter replaced.

There are two parts to it, a voltage resistor, and the EL panel itself.
You need to remove the console first. There are 2 screws under the front rubber pad, two under the cup holder, two in the bin. Remove those six first, take the storage bin out, then slide the rear cupholder out, remove the two screws under the cup holder, and one in front of it.
There are a total of 6 flat screws, and 3 self tapping screws you have removed.
Put the parking brake on, shift the tranny to N, and the transfer case to the middle position if equipped.
Remove the entire console. Slide the shifter beezel as far up vertically as you can. There are 4 clips you ned to remove to do it.
You will see a blue and black wire running into the back. Follow those wires to the resistor. You will see a transparent EL panel attatched to the resistor by two clips.
Usually, one or both of these clips has come loose, causing the light to work intermittantly. Clip them back on, and turn on the headlights to confirm that the light works correctly now.
Re-install everything in the opposite order.

Both the transfer cases used during that time look similar. See the following diagrams:
Here are instructions w/ pics:
(If you have the 242 I believe you can use ATF+4 instead of the special Mopar fluid but I would check first to make sure).

I have the same problem,an erratic reading on the oil pressure gauge.I have been in touch with Chrysler Jeep (USA) and this is a common problem.The oil pressure sensor needs to be replaced this is on the oil pump by the oil filter.I changed mine and no more problems.

It's most likely leaking from a higher location and running down the side of the engine and collecting at the pan. It could be anything from a intake manifold leak, to a head gasket, or frost plug, water pump or just a lose hose clamp.
