Its on the engine but you will have to specify the make and model of the car to get the exact location of the sensor. The light indicates low pressure so it is probably near the oil pump. Most of the time when the light comes on the oil level is too low, causing pressure to drop. You can check the oil level with the dip stick. Do not drive your car with the oil light on. Low pressure can cause significant wear on the engine in a short time and eventually cause the engine to seize up completely.

Where is oil sending unit located?

You're vehicle has two sensors for the oil,an oil pressure sensor switch & oil pressure sensor.If oil pressure gets below 6psi,the oil pressure sensor switch will turn a dash light on to let you know the pressure is at a dangerously low amount.So if you've got a dash light on,the pressure sensor switch needs to be replaced.Its located to the right of the oil filter housing,on a 2.0 liter.Its located to the left of the oil filter housing,on the 3.0 liter.
If your oil pressure gauge is reading inaccurately,you need to replace the oil pressure sensor instead.Its located near the ac compressor.

Seems as if all the senors in my car is going. I have the dash "low coolant" light on but coolant is fine. I also have a sensor in my front passenger side door gone and now my turn signals aren't

These are not really sensors but switches. The low coolant one if the tank is full is defective it is located in the coolant recovery tank. The door has a defective door ajar switch in one or more of the four doors, have a dealer scan the systems control module for id of which sensor it is, to replace them requires the door be taken apart a very time consuming job if you have to remove all 4 door panels.

The Cam Position Sensor is a common item to fail. However, the cam positioning mechanism can fail too giving that code.

There are two sensors and the Exhaust Cam Sensor is most common to fail. I always replace both.
Te CKP's are on the top front of the engine next to the cylindrical operation solenoids.

Knock sensors fail too and need checked or correct feedback to ECU with a scanner.
Find a shop near you at

These engines require regular oil changes with quality synthetic oils and OE filter....not a FRAM or WIX !

Buy only BMW sensors ...aftermarket have high failure rate.

I have 1991 honda accord and the door senors show

Wow, that's a tough one. I had a 1979 Honda Accord that had a door sensor image that lit whenever a door or hatch was open. I never had a problem with it, however.

Actually, if it was a fuse, then the lights wouldn't light up at all on the dash.

1991 was a good year for Honda.

Just had oil change and now 3 lights on dash came on tc ,abs ,yellow car facing down

It's hard to imagine the oil change had anything to do with this. Try resetting the ECU. Remove the negative terminal from the battery and after waiting a minute or so, re-fit the terminal and tighten. This will return all modules to their default values. Should fix the problem but you could still have a senor giving spurious data. If the lights still remain on, have the ECU data downloaded and analised.

There are spring tabs on the inboard side(engine side) of the reservior that are part of the sensor and you have to squeeze together in order to slide the sensor out. The springs run up and down as compared to the master cylinder. Good Luck
