SOURCE: Oil pressure light on at idle

Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

Try your headlight switch. If it is going bad it should affect all of these since they all work of the same switch.

not good. u should check with a mechanic. might be a rod knock, if your lucky just a lifter. If it was ran real low on oil its probably very serious and should get checked asap.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Caravan will not start and engine light flashing 10x

most likely it is the electronic control module which is the brain computer that runs the car and all of the functions and it is not allowing the electrical system to operate or come online. your power supply is not reaching the ignition due to some sort of either an electrical short or blockage.

OIL LIGHT KEEPS FLICKERING WHILE IDLE


Most likely your sensor is too sensitive and detects the low oil pressure that exists in idle .... you oil pump is not functioning fully and at idle fails to produce the right pressure. Lastly,your idle could be set too low. try increasing the idle slightly (you don't want it too high) and see if that solves the flickering light problem

Why do oil light come on after replaceing oil sending unit on 2005 dodge carvan


The engine produces oil pressure from the resistance(clearance ) between the bearings and crankshaft and the sending unit lets you know when there is no pressure. These switches ground the light in the dash around 5 psi. So as the engine gets warmer then the oil gets thinner with large amounts of clearance pressure drops. Test system with mechanical unit normal hot idle pressure should be 30-45 psi if low raise idle speed comes up then engine bearings are worn.

I have a tapping noise in my 2005 neon it just startaed


check the oil make sure its full. change the oil with recommended grade oil and the filter. if this doesn't fix the issue have the oil pressure checked. neon are known to have bearing issues that cause low oil pressure and a tapping noise because the lifters are not getting enough oil. some will have the oil light flicker when engine is idle in gear. another cause for a tapping would be the belt tentioner

Oil light came on when idling; oil changed; still happening occasionally. If I put it in park or neutral and rev it - the oil light goes out. Could it be the oil sending/pressure unit? Is there an easy way...


make sure are using a genuine dodge oil filter and correct grade of oil to check further you need to have the oil pressure checked using a master gauge a garage would do this for you if ok replace pressure switch if very low could be pump and bearing wear is the idle speed set too low i would check this

Oil light comes on at idle when warm


sadly youre problem is bad oil pressure at idle due to to much wear at the crankshaft main or rod bearings or both, a defective oil pump or to much tolerance at the cylinder head where the cams work so it doesnt build pressure at idle, remeber the pump is turning slower at idle so its much difficult to mantein pressure that at higher rpm try using heavy weight oil (25w-50) it will compensate for the wearand get a new pump
