Light shows oil pressure. Either the pressure is bordering on too low when you are idling or your sensor is failing. I'd try replacing the oil pressure sensor first, and if it still flickers, make sure your oil level is normal and then check the pump.

I have KIA sorento 2.5 diesel 2009 model and it was overhaul engine and now the the oil lump keeps on flicking when reducing speed or idling after getting warm, What could be the problem

Remove the oil sender unit, fit a oil pressure gauge , start the engine and read the oil pressure at idle engine hot, must read above 10 psi and needle not flicking, must increase with engine speed , if pressure is ok replace censer, if not check oil pump screen and relief vale spring, can also be caused by crankshaft bearings clearance .

most likely a bad body ground or a alternator going bad. easy to check out put of alternator with a simple volt meter. if 13 volts or a bit higher you are charging. is the truck idle staying even or is it dropping? a very low idle below say 400 may cause the condition too.

I bought a 90 accord and i think it might be a sensor going out, it is 20 years old... but the oil lamp comes on and goes out, and the check engine light flicks on but doesnt always come back on when i...

If the oil pressure is low at idle, that is due to normal wear. But if it comes on at speed, you may have a problem. Replacing the sending unit is inexpensive.

Dashboard indicator flicking ie oil light and battery light

As the engine temp increases, oil returns to the sump (pump location) faster. You may just be low on oil. When its cold, the light is on at times...

Battery light flicks on and off

Go to an Autozone or Oreillys parts store for a free scan of your car. If the light flickers at idle then it can be the alternator or a change in the idle speed.
