SOURCE: my oil pressure light stays on even after fitting a new one

I don't want to worry you but have you checked to see if the oil pump is ok, as if it has failed the oil pressure will be the problem not the switch which operates the warning light. ? Have you tried taking off the oil filler cap whilst the engine is running as if you do that you can sometimes be able to see ( with the aid of a torch/flashlight ) if the oil is getting pumped up to the timing gear, i.e. the camshaft and the valve gear, followers etc. If the oil is sluishing about at the top of the engine ( spitting out even ) then that is some good indication that the oil is being pumped up by the oil pump from the bottom of the engine ( where it is usually situated above the oil sump at the base of the engine) Furthermore...The oil pump 'pick up' pipe usually has a gauze filter attached to it, to stop any ' foreign bodies' entering the lubrication system if it has become blocked the oil flow into the pump will be restricted and could cause a low pressure warning, Unfortunately the only way I know to check this is by 'dropping' i.e. removing the sump which can be a big job depending on the access to it.I am not familiar with your model of car nor am I a qualified mechanic but know quite a bit about how engines work and how to fix problems. Also if there is insufficient oil in the engine this will cause the warning light to come on. Have you tried changing the oil as old worn out oil might also give you problems including wrecking your engine. I hope something I have said may be helpful, Good Luck...... Stephen

Oil light stays on , oil level is ok


The light is activated by an an oil pressure switch. With the engine not running there is no pressure so it lights up. When the oil recirculates, the pressure increase and the light goes out. Locate yours and change it, they are fairly inexpensive. If it stays lit after a change it may indicate something more serious.

Oil light stays on when engine running


Check the actual pressure, with a guage.
This is usually done via the oil pressure switch hole. It the engine has fewhoudrs then the oil bypass valve is stuck in the open position.
This is located inside or as a part of the oil pump itself.

Oil pressure light stays on even though the oil level is fine


That could be from not having any oil pressure "oil pump failure, clogged filter, etc" or from a faulty oil pressure sending unit. More tests would need to be performed but is it really an oil pressure light or is it the change oil light. More info would be needed

Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 2007 oil light stays on temporarily when staring engine but goes off when revved...any ideas?


Try some thicker oil , you have a worn component inside the motor, there is not enough oil pressure when the car first starts does this happen at an idle in gear?.

If oil indicator is showing


if it is the red oil indicator that stays on and the oil level is full and you do not hear any rattling or ticking noises from the engine then you may want to look at the oil pressure switch. most times it will be seeping oil from around the connector when it is bad.

Oil Pressure light stays on


Then you may have low oil pressure, did that occur to you?

Oil light on when oil is full


a loose connection WILL NOT cause flickering oil light unless your your oil is empty at the same time a connector is loose. This flickering is most likely caused by clogged oil ports or failing oil pump. When this happens there is insufficient oil running through the engine, causing the sensor to activate the light intermittedly. Have this checked immediately to prevent extensive engine damage. Hopefully this helps!!

Low oil warning light staying on oil level ok


would be best to have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to be sure you have oil pressure.
hopefully you just have a bad oil pressure switch this is located on oil filter adapter rt above filter
