Hello,
If you oil levels are ok and your not burning or loosing oil then they only thing that it could be is that you have a faulty oil switch, try replacing the oil switch hopefully this should make the red light go out.

Actually the port to the switch could be clogged. You could remove the switch and start it for a few seconds and see if oil blows out of the hole. These switches usually don't fail but leak instead. The fix is to blow air in the switch hole and open it up.

Oil light on 2006 Chevy Aveo but oil levels are fine


The oil warning light is for oil pressure, not the oil level in the engine.
Your owner's manual will explain it in detail.
You need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge or replace the oil pressure sending unit to see if it is faulty.

The oil warning light comes on when you start the car and stays on for 1 - 4 minutes then goes off. The oil was just changed and oil levels are good. Why is the light coming on?


You have a sensor taht may be unplugged or the connector is loose-it is probably somewhere near the oil filter or the oil pan

Oil pressure on my audi a4 is low after been service what will cause this


First check the Dip Stick and see where your oil levels are, if its low, then add more Oil as mechanic may not have replaced the correct amount after service. second, if you can reach your Oil filter in the engine just give it a tighten with your hand as it should only be hand tight. and thirdly look for any signs of an oil leak, either Oil spill inside the engine or under the car. Generally Oil levels should be full after any car service. Good Luck.

92 voyager check gage light


That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

2005 hyundai sonata oil light flickers. oil


Yes there is a sensor located on the front of engine on the transmission side(single wire). It cannot be "reset". Possibly loose connection at the sensor,or a faulty sensor, OR... you could be losing oil pressure inside the engine somewhere(lets hope not) these engines are designed to run on very low oil pressure compared to cars of days gone by. The sonata 4 cylinder runs about only 12 psi. The V6 is 7.6 psi or more.
So if it is an oil pressure issue it is extremely important not to run the car before it is fixed or you will need an entire engine.
