First thing replace the oil switch its cheep if this fails i would remove the sump and clean the strainer in the sump as this gets blocked with carbon deposits from the oil and it kills a lot of saab engines if left

If oil & filter done/checked on a regular basis,and no new sounds or noises from engine, I would certainly lean toward new oil pressure switch. Probably does it more often when stopping maybe? If your very nervous about it, have a mechanic hook up his own good oil pressure gauge to engine in order to verify pressure is where it should be.

reg code P (iso ) is
P 23px-flag_of_portugal.svg.png Portugal warning on many cars are designed for target country.
so?
with special operators guide for you.
ours is here.
and endless list . it seems

on or cars if at all, its master warning
means to look at all other lights and gauges for wrong readings.
but>?????

quote:
This is the Master Warning Light symbol. If this light is on, there will likely be text displayed as well on the instrument panel. Look for the text. It could very well point out something as serious as low oil pressure. However, despite the serious look to the symbol, it is generally associated with simple reminders such as a door ajar or that it is time to change the oil. master_warning_light_2.gifThis same symbol, an exclamation point in a triangle, in yellow or amber has been used by European vehicle manufacturers to indicate a fault in the vehicle's Stability Control System. The vehicle can be driven with caution, but without the benefit of the advanced electronic control system. See your dealer as soon as possible.

buy the lost operators guide and not need to google seach every time a light flashes. nor get stranded. with no 3g.

Check engine oil light flashes after oil change


Do you mean oil change warning light or oil pressure warning light?

2006 CTS Engine light on.


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Oil warning light flashing mean?


Normally, if you get a oil warning light signal (flashing) could be a few things related to it. Number one, you are low on oil. Check your oil level and make sure it is at full level. Number two, is possibly oil filter is dirty, ( time for service,oil change) or problem with oil pump or oil pump pressure. BUT I would first start with checking oil level and then maybe a oil change.

2001 Saab SE red engine light and oil can, possible throttle


first off your mechanic sounds like he's taking you for a ride! If the oil lights coming on you need to check your oil pressure. I wouldnt drive this car anymore till I knew for sure I was getting good oil pressure through out the motor. Find a different mechanic! Mechanics are some of the biggest lying thieves! Right up there with lawyers.

Polo 1.4 x reg burning oil 46,000 miles Help?


Does it burn oil ? Do you have to add oil than all the time, check the oil presure switch first, 99 % it is NOT the oil pump!
