The first trial. Switch on ignition. The engine oil pressure warning light for thered light. Start and run the engine, warning lights, half a minute later re lit, butthe Yellow state. Repeated tests a few times are so. Turn off the engine. Pull out the dipstick check the amount of oil, the normal. Self diagnosis to connect to the GTl diagnostic instrument, choose 3 E46 chassis models, click on the"test" button, the scanning of the electronic control system of the whole car.After click two times right. Enter the fault code list interface, can be seen in the"KOM combination meter" project. The store has a fault code.then use the obd code reader to check out it.
When the oil lamp lights - it means there's no oil pressure. This can be even with dipstick oil level at the maximum mark. No oil pressure can be caused by a broken oil pump or the oil pump suction pipe clogged up or loose in the oil sump.
Also the oil pressure sensor can be broken - Check it from the sensor, connector and the cable onwards.
In any case get this issue fixed before driving too far.
Yes its mentioned correct in manual.The HI indication comes on when there is about 1 quart too much oil. Get the excess oil drained.-----------CHECKING ENGINE OIL LEVEL:-------- A sensor in the oil pan allows oil level to be checked without opening the hood. It provides an accurate measurement of oil level, whereas the low engine oil level indicator warns that oil level is definitely too low. With the vehicle parked on a level surface, the engine is warmed up and shut off for approximately five minutes.When the ignition switch is turned to the ON/RUN position, an ISO oil level icon appears in the trip odometer window and a "clock" icon in the cumulative odometer display. Pressing the knob to the left of the speedometer twice within one second displays one of the following messages: • OK • -1.0 Q (-1.0L) • -1.5 Q (-1.5L) • -2.0 Q (-2.0L) • HI The indicated amount of oil must be added to the engine if the message -2.0 Q (-2.0L) blinks and a signal sounds. The HI message indicates that the excess oil must be removed from the pan to avoid possible engine or catalytic converter damage. If the ISO oil level icon and "clock" icon remain on when attempting to check oil level and no message follows, or if the low engine oil level warning lamp comes on, a malfunction in the engine oil level system is indicated. A conveniently located dipstick allows manual checking of the oil level. If no leaks are noted, continue to drive to the nearest service station where the engine oil should be topped to the "full" mark on the dipstick with an approved oil.--------------------
There are many yellow lights on vehicles. They can be different on the same make and model of any particular vehicle depending on what option packages your vehicle is equipped with. Your best bet is to look it up in your owners manual. If you do not have an owners manual, I offer this advise: On all vehicles with the warning lamps in the instrument cluster, the yellow lamp are advisory lamps. ie. telling you that there is a malfunction with a system or letting you know that certain systems have been disabled. It is usually safe to operate the vehicle with the yellow warning lamps illuminated long enough to get the vehicle to a repair facility. (Check Engine Lights, Airbag Lights, Low washer Fluid Lights, etc.)The red lamps on the other hand, mean that the vehicle is not safe to drive before the cause of the lamp coming on has been resolved. (examples are the red Brake Warning Lamp, The Engine Teperature Warning Lamp, The Oil Pressure Warning Lamp.)
Since you stated the the lamp is yellow, I would say that it would be safe to drive the car to your local repair facility and ask them about it and get a professional opinion of what to do about it.
