An oil sending unit very easy to replace, and very cheap! in the time it would take you to unplug the buzzer, you could have done replaced the sending unit!

Why is the oil light coming on intermittently?


You either have a bad oil pump, too much clearance in engine components or a bad oil sensor.

Red spanner warning light


Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

Oil light on in 1989 cutlass ciera


The sensor wire may have fallen off the motor, the sensor may have gone bad after all these years. Ground the wire to the car, if the lite goes out, the sensor is bad. Or reverse that, remove the wire and see if the lite goes out. Depends on how the car is wired.

A red light on the dashboard can mean you should stop driving right away, or you may have a little time before you have to bring your car into the shop. Know what's what so you don't get stuck.

Oil light on dash stays on oil up to mark on dipstick


This means you have bad oil presure or your oil sensor has gone bad. Start with checking the sensor on the engine. If bad replace. Other wise you need to check the oil sending unit and the oil pump to see if they have gone bad.

Was driving home and my oil light blinked and the car shutoff will not restart now please help.... 1999 passat sw gls 1.8t


Check the oil level, if the level is good then there is a good chance the oil pressure sensor unit has gone bad or the wire harness has gone bad. Check the wire harness first and if that is good then replace the oil pressure sensor, if the engine ECM detects less then 5 PSI of oil pressure the ECM will shut the engine's fuel system off to prevent engine damage. Good luck and i believe Auto Zone will have the oil pressure sensor and the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

My temperature sensor warning light came on and my car ovrheated. I got a major tune up, the temperature warning light vame off, but the car still overheats when city driving. My gueass is that ia bad...


It is not a bad sensor, if
1-Inside your OIL cap has some milky stuff as a result from water mixing with oil from overheat.
2- You are losing water.
If both are happening, you have a blown head gasket. Bad news
If non of these happens, your are good, just replace the thermostate. Good luck.

Oil light flashing & beeping


This usually indicates that the oil pressure is low, but you need to get it checked out whether it's just a pressure sensor fault or connection issue, or it actually has got low oil pressure. The last one is the most concerning, because it could be causing internal damage if there is not enough oil pressure. Hopefully with a relatively late model car it will just be a sensor issue, but I would get it checked out ASAP, and preferably not use the car in the meantime.
Hope this helps, Mark.
