On your car the switch is near or directly above the oil filter. It has usually only 1 wire going to it. It screws directly into the block. The flashing vs the solid oil light means you have more than 4psi in the crankcase. If it drops below that then it goes solid red. It may be your switch going bad, or a defective oil filter, or you are low on oil. Good luck.

Where is oil sending unit located?


You're vehicle has two sensors for the oil,an oil pressure sensor switch & oil pressure sensor.If oil pressure gets below 6psi,the oil pressure sensor switch will turn a dash light on to let you know the pressure is at a dangerously low amount.So if you've got a dash light on,the pressure sensor switch needs to be replaced.Its located to the right of the oil filter housing,on a 2.0 liter.Its located to the left of the oil filter housing,on the 3.0 liter.
If your oil pressure gauge is reading inaccurately,you need to replace the oil pressure sensor instead.Its located near the ac compressor.

Oil light keeps flashing, car full of oil


Low oil pressure could be the reason the oil light in your car will come on. Test your oil pressure. Without enough pressure, the oil will not reach necessary areas of the engine. The oil pressure sensor itself may sometimes become clogged with sludge from the engine, especially if the engine has not been properly maintained. A clogged oil sensor can give a false reading of low oil pressure, which will illuminate your oil light. So, check the oil pressure sensor light.

Oil light keeps flashing but the oil is good


Oil light is for pressure, not level. A flashing oil light means your oil pressure is low. If you have a normal oil level, and the car is not making any grinding or knocking noises from inside the engine, you may have a bad oil pressure sensor.

Oil light warning flashed along with tone no visable oil leaking, engine oil level ok


Check the Oil Pressure/Sending Sensor located right adjacent to the Oil Filter. Check the connections. Because of it's location, it is prone to have corrosion and oxidation affect the connection. Remove the Sensor. Visually inspect and clean the Sensor. Clean any corrosion on both connections sites and replug it back in and check operation. I don't replace these Sensors right away. If the same problem occurs, then I replace the Sensor and recheck the operation.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

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.

Oil sensor


The oil light on your car has nothing to do with oil level in the crankcase but rather oil pressure. The oil pressure switch/sensor is located on the rear of the engine block above the right axle I believe. Unless you have engine noise or suspect low oil pressure, I'd replace it but you could check oil pressure for peace of mind with an pressure gauge if you wish. You may need a special socket to replace it.
