Ef falcon wagon - dash light and park lights dont come immediatly

Hi
I have an ef falcon wagon and more often than not when i switch the head lights on the dash lights and the parker lights dont come on straight away. the head lights low and high beam work but as i said the dash and the parkers dont come on straight away. I can drive a couple of hundred meters up the road and they will switch on and be fine the whole time until i switch them off again.
Got me stumped

EF & EL are 1,5,3,6,2,4
EF has a coil pack under the inlet manifold the EL has a distributor
EF uses a waste spark system so 2 plugs are fired at the same time eg 1 & 6 - 2 & 5 - 3 & 4

Parking lights, tail lights, and dash lights dont work


i assume you have checked all lighting fuses. if you have not, start there. do you have brake lights? if you do have brake and head lights then i would suspect the dimmer/light switch.

Ford Falcon EF 4.0 Auto - oil light stays on - hot running


No you have overheated it ,for what ever the reason ,when it cools down oil pressure should be alright again but iam afraid you have bought someones elses bucket of you know what .If oil light doesnt go out then it wants either a new switch or someone put STP oil thickener in it to flog it ,take it back and get your cash back,Dont forget to have your base ball bat tucked into coat .

Sounds like the alternator needs replacing or a loose wire/cable.Check the starter and alternator wires/cables are securely fastened.Also use a multi meter to check wether your alternator is providing enough power to run the electrical system,should be producing no less than 12.8 with all lights etc switched on.
