Check the connection & sensor right above the oil filter..they are so close to the oil filter they can be damaged easy when changing oil filters..i damaged mine before.. but sounds like a loose connector possible..hopfully ;-)

How to reset the change oil light on 2001 chevrolet suburban LS


Turn the ignition key to on position, but do not start the vehicle.
Wait for the "change oil light" to come on
Tap the throttle pedal three times quickly
Wait for the light to flash several times, then go out.
Start the car and drive and it won't come back on.

It usually works the first time, but repeat if light stays on.

Oil light blinking


there is always the possibility that you really have low oil pressure when you get this light, at idle the engines oil pump produces the least pressure and if there are problems then that is when it shows up, so have the oil pressure tested by a shop with a mechanical test gage, if the oil pressure is within spec then replace the oil pressure light sending unit on the engine, I don't recommend you drive this until u are sure of the pressure, u can SEVERELY damage the engine is the pressure is really low.

Blue thermostat light comes on after driving for 5 miles or so and stays on; after driving for 20 miles or so on occasion the oil pressure light comes on when car slows down and is idling.


when the thermostat in a beetle goes, it stays in the open position, so it could be you blue light is indicating a "cold system",change the thermostat.
the oil light will come on if low on oil or you have a low pressure,try using 10/40 semi synthetic oil.and mloyslip.if no improvement you will need to renew the oil pump.

97 buick century, oil light started flashing, check engine light flashing car shut down on the interstate. what can i do?


Go check your oil first. If it is low or absent then you need to go get some! The car needs 2-3 quarts to get back into range at the least. Then try starting the engine. If the car starts and the light goes out you can drive to a mechanic and have the check engine code read to see what else is wrong. If the oil light stays on....call for a tow truck! You risk serious and complete engine damage if you drive any further...if you havent already!

Be careful and good luck!

Oil light stuck on


This light is flashing due to a low engine oil pressure signal, this may be a real issue of low engine oil pressure or a defective pressure sensor on the engine, replace the sensor first and see if the light goes out, if not u have a possiable engine oil pump problem.
