The oil pressure switch is a short circuit when there is low oil pressure. Removing the wire from it should turn off the warning light. If it doesn't, the chances are there is a short circuit between the lamp and the sensor.

Why does the oil warning light come on when the oil level is full oa a 1987 dodge ram 50 truck


Your oil light is not a level indicator, it is a pressure indicator. If your oil light is on with the engine running, it either means that you have a bad pressure sender or you have no oil pressure. I suggest installing a mechanical pressure gauge to verify if you do or do not have oil pressure. If with the mechanical gauge you do prove to have oil pressure then simply change your oil sending unit. But if you do not have oil pressure with the mechanical gauge, then you must drop the oil pan and find out why you have no pressure.

2001 chrysler town & country oil light is on


If you are taking the car to the garage or a mechanic, mark the oil filter before leaving home to make sure the filter is changed. After the oil has been changed when you return home you can check the filter to see if it was changed because the oil will only be changed. Since some mechanics know an owner of a vehicle will not check. Also, AutoZone have a very good quality oil for the chrysler town and country. Good Luck

The oil light on my 1998 Camry is on but I just got the oil changed


If it is the oil pressure warning light showing, the next thing to do is to remove the oil pressure sender unit and screw in a gauge to see if the sender is at fault.

After that it could be that the over-pressure relief valve in the oil pump has stuck open.

Oil lights stays on


If the engine is not making any noise then it is likely not a real oil pressure problem. Just to make sure have the pressure checked by a shop with a mechanical test gauge and if found to be inspect replace the sending unit and that should in most cases cure the problem. I assume this is a pressure indicator.

Lincoln Town Car 2000 oil pressure light problem


No I wouldn't say so. There is not much difference and your car would be running hard when started.

It could be the sensor and if that's the case then you really have nothing to worry about, and the sensor isn't worth the money in fixing.

I hope this helps!

Check engime light comes on and off


If you hear any ticking or knocking inside the engine do not drive it. You could change the oil pressure sending unit if there's no noise, most times that will fix the problem. It is advisable to put an external mechanical pressure gauge on there, either temporary or permanent...then, you can read the actual pressure...
I prefer gauges to lights because most time lights (either temp or oil) tell you "you have just blown your engine", instead of warning you when a problem is just beginning.

Just had oil changed, dipstick reads full, but oil light flickers


the light is probably sending an OIL Pressure drop warning ---there is a rarity however
an oil filter may be improperly installed or the OIL Pressure connection on the oil pressure
sending unit --usually next to the filter --is loose or corroded or the oil pressure sending unit may
be going bad ---on a 2001 it is conceivable
otherwise you have an internal oil pressure leak --crank or cam bearings --bad o ringy thingy somewhere or the oil pump --may be experiencing problem too or the pick up screen in the oil pan
is somwhat clogged ---for a clog --try what's called SEAFOAM in the oil ---the stuff actually works
like it says on the can --about 8 bucks --drive for a week --say 500 miles worth and change the oil filter again --just the filter ---either way OIL Pressure is nothing to ignore ---you need to fix that
asap depending on the problem source!!!
I hope this helps
