SOURCE: oil and brake light flashing

Had the same problem. It was the control module for the ABS. Dealer will try to charge about 2,000 to fix, but there are several company's that will rebuild it for about 250. You can also take it out and still drive the car while it is being rebuilt. Google ABS module rebuild for a place to send it. Did it a while ago and not a peep out of her.

SOURCE: check oil and check gauges light on

HEY,
YOU SEEM TO BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. I WOULD START WITH THE SENDING UNITS. GM LOVES TO PUT TWO OF THE ON A CAR. ONE FOR THE GUAGE AND ONE FOR THE DASH LIGHT. UNLESS YOU HAVE NOTICED ANY BIG CHANGES IN OIL PRESSURE I WOULD THINK IT IS THE SENDER(SWITCH) FOR THE LIGHT. THEY ARE NORMALLY LOCATED AROUND THE AREA OF THE OIL FILTER HOUSING.

SOURCE: My oil light started flashing and alarm beeping

If the idle goes down below 600 rpm it will trigger this alarm, inadequete rpm to create oil pressure,consider adressing this issue if it exists. If this is not the case and the car has more than 150,000 miles on it remove the oil pan and replace the oil pump, I will warn you however that the usual reason why oil pressure drops off is because the connecting rod bearing clearances have opened up thereby allowing to much oil to pass by them connecting rod bearings should be done at the time of oil pump replacement.

Oilpump


If your oil pressure gauge is reading normal I wouldn't think so. You need to get your codes read with a scan tool and find out what the computer thinks the problem is.

Oil pressure light flashing


If your oil pressure is good, let's look beyond the oil pump.
I'd like to tell you how to turn off the pesky light, but that's beyond my skill.
In the long run, you may choose to put black tape over it.
It could be the sending unit, yes.
They aren't too expensive.
If that doesn't work, I'd consider an oil pressure gauge!.
You didn't say what year or model you have.
Could you handle an oil pressure gauge mounted under the dashboard?
Loose or worn bearings , if not noisy now, will very often fail very quickly, sometimes before you can even reach the ignition key to turn it off!
Be blessed.

Hi i have problem with oil light flashing after 20 30 min when i am driving.It is only when i stop on trafic or car park -engine stiil runing.Then when i press gas pedal lights is off.checked oil level and...


You can fiddle with thiis and check oil pressures but best is sump off, thorough clean, teardown the pump thoroughly clean it and pickup and replace it if any wear or the pressure releif spring is weak.You have given no mileage and no information on the oil used nor whether in a really hot area or 'where'?..there are several considerations ranging even into worn bearings...Of course with acceleration motor speed increases oil pressure...that's why light goes out (unlikely but possible the sender unit is faulty...but try replacement of that first if you want...) It doesn't take a lot of pump wear to cavitiate and drop oil pressures.

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

Oil pressure light is blinking.


It's very possible a coincidence and that the flashing oil light is the oil pressure switch. I'd check it out immediately to make sure there's sufficient oil flowing through the engine. Merely jump starting the car shouldn't have knocked anything loose so to be on the safe side, assume there's an oil pressure issue. You were right to not use the car in the interim.

OIL LIGHT


Have someone check the actual oil pressure with a mechanical gauge immediately. You may have an internal problem. This will also verify if you just need a new pressure sending unit.
good luck! hope this helps you.

Hi

The light and buzzer are indicating low oil pressure and therefor if there is enough oil in th engine then you should have the oil pressure tested because you could have, amingst other things, a worn oil pump, a clogged strainer or a sticking oil filter check valve

Maybe you could try an oil and filter change using a good quality oil filter?

Very best regards
