It may appear if there is a particular sensor fails.
Try reset the indication using the following technique.
Sometimes the problem could be solved.
Advantage is you could use this technique in the future too.

If you can get an OBD 2 scanner off eBay (US$ 6), you could be able to communicate with your car ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using the smart-phone app.

So that, there is a chance to CLEAR all the error indications.

After that, if problem still persists, it means the vehicle need full scan (you can't do this at home, probably seek a vehicle garage).

Check oil level in the sump and fill if necessary. If ok check the wire to the oil sender unit is tight and not shorting out on the engine . Replace the sender unit. have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical pressure gauge

Why does my oil light come on after the car warms up?


Why does my oil pressure light came on when I stop?
Low pressure means there either isn't enough oil in the system or the oil pump isn't circulating enough oil to keep the critical bearing and friction surfaces lubricated. If the light comes on while at speed, do your best to pull off the road quickly, turn the engine off, and investigate the problem to avoid damage.

2004 lincoln avaitor oil light comes on the engine shuts down


Does the oil light come on BEFORE the engine shuts down? I have to ask because it is NORMAL for the oil light to be on when the engine is not running. I had a customer that said the same thing just last week. After we wasted a bunch of time (which the customer ended-up paying for) checking the oil level, the oil pressure, and verifying correct oil pressure gauge, light, and sending unit operation, it turned out that the crankshaft position sensor was bad and causing the engine to shut down and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the oil light - it was functioning as designed.

If the oil light is coming on before the engine shuts down, the first thing you need to do is check your oil level. If the oil level is OK, you need to check the oil pressure with a gauge to determine if there is an actual engine oil pressure problem or if the oil pressure sending unit, gauge or light is malfunctioning. Also, it is highly advisable to not drive the vehicle AT ALL if the oil pressure light is coming on while driving until the cause of the light coming on has been determined and repairs have been made. Otherwise, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE may result.

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex

Oil level low light comes on. When I turn


some cars with oil level warning light on, it doesn't mean that its only reading the engine oil level is low, sometime the transmission fuid too. Did you check your transmission fluid if it is ok or not? try to check and let us know, ok.

How low is my oil when the light comes on. My oil light did not come on until my car was completely empty of oil. Is that normal?


No, not normal at all! If your oil light comes on, stop driving before you ruin the engine! The light indicates not necessarily low oil, but lack of pressure. Either way, you need to get it fixed. If you add oil and the problem comes back soon, then you have other problems, like leaks, or a failing oil pump.

Oil light comes on. Just got oil change. Is oil


Most likely POOR OIL PRESSURE. DO NOT run theengine till you connect with the shop that changed the oil. Could be many possibilities i.e. wrong oil, bad filter, not enough oil . Hope this helps
