Suzuki swift ddi 1.3 oil light flashing when first start but goes off after 30 seconds. Does it every time start car, hot or cold. Oil level fine. Can't find anything in the manual or on line to help....


might need to reset sensor, my van does that every three thousand miles, computer controls that tracking of milage to estimate the next change, try this to see if it clears------turn on ignition so dash lights up ,right before you turn ignition for a full start,this is so the computer turns on( dont have car running) then pump gas pedal three full times and hold it down on a fourth for about ten seconds,( pump,pump,pump,hold), hopefullt this should reset the computer sensor. turn off car wait ten to fifteen seconds, and start normally, hopefully it should have the oil light on after that, if it does you might need to check with a mechanic.

My Main Req'd light is on. What do I need to do? My Milege is 98,000.


You just need to change your oil and reset it. you can call your local dealer and they will let you know the interval at which the light will keep coming on. you can reset the light by having the car off and holding the trip odometer button down 10 seconds then turn the car on but keep holding the button another ten seconds after you turn the car on. this shud help.

I changed the oil but my dip stick is showing way too much oil, what is going on? At first I had a hell of a time getting the drain plug out, but finally did. Drained the oil, replaced the filter,...


Make sure you are not checking the oil with the car running first of all, second don't check the oil immediately after turning off the car let the engine stand for about ten minute allowing the oil to drain off the dip stick,
