The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate anytime the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. When the engine is running, the light also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:
If the oil pressure light does not work, perform the following:
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. If the lamp does not light, check for a broken or disconnected wire around the engine and oil pressure sending unit switch.
  3. If the wire at the connector checks out OK, pull the connector loose from the switch and, with a jumper wire, ground the connector to the engine.
  4. With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, check the warning lamp. If the lamp lights, make sure the oil pressure switch is properly grounded in the cylinder block, and if so replace the oil pressure switch. If the lamp still fails to light, check for a burned out lamp or disconnected socket in the instrument cluster.
To diagnose an oil pressure light that stays on, perform the following:
  1. Check the engine oil level and top off as necessary. If the engine was 2 or more quarts low on oil, test start the engine after topping off the oil level and recheck the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on, stop the engine immediately and go to the next step.
  2. Disconnect the wire at the sending unit, then turn the ignition switch to theON position. If the light remains on, check the wire from the sending unit to the gauge for being shorted to ground and repair as necessary. If the light goes out, turn the ignition switch OFF and go to the next step.
  3. Replace the oil pressure sending switch with a known good switch.
  4. Start the engine and check the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on with the engine running, stop the engine immediately to avoid severe engine damage until the cause of the problem can be determined.

WARNING
If the oil pressure light remains on while the engine is started, stop the engine immediately. Do not operate the engine until the cause of the problem can be determined. Operating an engine with low oil pressure will cause severe internal damage.

Possible causes for an oil pressure light to stay on are:


Pinched or grounded sensor wireDefective oil pressure sending unitRestricted or severely leaking oil filterExcessive internal engine bearing clearance.Insufficient or severely contaminated engine oilBlocked oil pump pickup screen or severely worn oil pump

Why is there no sound from my speakers but the radio is on


easy check to carry out ,borrow a speaker that you know works, if you remove one from another vehicle make sure ignition is off when taking speaker out, take a speaker out from your vehicle ignition off , the door speakers are usually the easiest to remove,plug in the known good speaker to your vehicle turn ignition on then radio, if you get sound then the problem is with the speakers but very unusual for all speakers to blow at the same time unless there has been a power surge through the amp. if no sound still remove radio and make sure the wire connectors are pushed home securely if they are then it's most likely the radio is not working will need replacing as a repair can be more expensive than new

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure


This is a common problem on most Ford products since around 1998. The issues is mostly with the COP--Coil-On-Plug. Their individual coils for eack spark plug,vs. a single coil pack or distibutor and wire type system. Now the good part. With all of fords problems, ALL MFG's use this type system,Nice move.
The coil driver failure, shouldn't be a wide spread issue
Forget recalls?

You saw Nissan ,recall issues,back to 2004 thru 2008,once Toyota had the gas peddle issues. If it wasn't for Toyota,they were laying low. Everyone new there were problems. Same thing on Chevy Colorado,Etc

I dont think I have ever come across your exact problem.
I checked for TSB's regarding your problem, and there were
none.
I would recommend removing the instrument panel (I.P), and
checking the connections.
I would also check the connections at the ignition switch.
It is possible that one of the ignition wires is not being fed when this problem occurs. This could be caused by
a poor/broken connection, Worn ignition switch, or a remote car starter poorly installed or malfunctioning.

The next time this happens, grab a test light and remove panels for access to the wiring harness to the ignition switch. STAY AWAY FROM THE HARNESS FOR THE CLOCKSPRING AND AIRBAG. With the ignition on (in run) check for power at the dark blue wire, black&white wire, and the black&orange wire.
If one does not have power, then test it at the switch. If still no power, then replace the switch. If the wire has no power, but has power at the switch then repair the wire.
