There s/b a finite resistance between pins 1 and 2. Even if this is so, the sensor can still be defective. I suggest that, if the dipstick shows full, and you're getting a Low Oil message, merely replace the sensor. It's a known, but rare, failure. You'll need to drain the oil, and replace the O-ring.

Continuity is used to check that a circuit is continuous, and not broken. It does not measure resistance. Example: an electrical fuse to see if it is truly blown.

Resistance is a measure of the impeding of current flow. In the case of the level sensor, the resistance element heats the sensor.

Diode test is to determine if a diode is defective; one polarity actually measures the junction voltage, and the other polarity shows nothing, which indicates that the diode is working.

If you want to know more, visit your local Radio Shack and ask for a book An Overview of Oil Level Sensors and How They Work

If you have an oil pressure sensor light that keeps coming on even, if you have just filled up your oil tank to the optimized level, then there's a good chance that it's the oil pressure sensor that's not working. If the light sensor is coming on and off while you are driving, it's most likely a faulty oil pressure sensor. But to make sure, always check your oil tank whenever the light comes on again. If the oil level is still up to the desired level, then it's definitely an oil pressure sensor. This calls for an oil pressure sensor replacement, which is far better than having an engine repaired. It will only cost a couple of bucks to replace a sensor. if above fails, have the oil pressure checked it could be a plugged up oil pump. have a good day !! check the wiring to sensor also.

Check oil level Light on 95 Cadillac eldorado

Did you check your oil level? If the oil level is OK and the light will not shut off, check the connector at the oil level sensor. It is located in the side of the engine oil pan. If the connector and wires are OK, then you may need to replace the sensor. It simply screws out of the oil pan, but you will most likely lose a little oil in the process, so be sure to use a drain pan.

2003 Dodge Neon Check Oil light wont go off. Car has oil-full, and just put in new Sensor.

Do you mean the oil level sensor was replaced, or do you mean the oil pressure sending unit was replaced?
If it was the oil pressure sensor was replaced, then I would look into an oil pump going bad, not supplying enough pressure to the oil pressure sensor. This can be tested by putting an oil pressure gauge into where the oil pressure sensor normally goes, bypassing the circuitry that leads to the dash light for the oil pressure.

If it was the oil level sensor, then check for bad wiring.

What would cause the oil pressure to drop without any visible oil leak.

Most common reason is low engine oil level, so check your oil level first. and if that's ok then check the following:
  1. Oil pressure sensor maybe faulty
  2. Check oil pump pressure with a gauge fitted where the oil sensor is test oil pressure when cold and at operating temperature.
  3. Loose wiring connection or faulty wiring to the sensor /gauge. Good luck, let me know how you get on.
