Oil light is dinging when idleing 99 plymouth voyager


The warning light is telling the engine oil pressure is below 10psi.
The problem could be a faulty pressure switch, or the engine could really have low oil pressure.
You can replace the switch, or check the pressure with a mechanical gauge and see what happens.

Are you calling the oil pressure switch the oil solenoid ?
The oil pressure switch could have failed which would push oil out the terminal where the wire is connected.

2005-low oil pressurer explore


I'm assuming you have a low oil pressure indicator on the dash. Have you checked the oil level? If it is at correct level, it is possible the oil pressure sender/switch isn't reading the pressure properly. Also it is possible that bearings in the engine are worn out, or that the oil pump isn't working properly. If you don't have a pressure gauge to screw into the engine where the switch is, I would start by replacing the oil pressure switch.

Oil light keeps coming on


1992 ford explorer with the oil light coming on, this can be due to a bad switch, this switch is called the oil pressure switch and is located near the oil filter area, this would be the cheapest way to go first and if the light still comes on then you will need to have a pressure gauge hooked to where the switch goes and the gauge will tell you if its really low on oil pressure and if it is then this may be due to worn engine bearings or weak oil pump, i will tell you i have not seen an explorer with low oil pressure just needing a oil pump, most of the time it is time for another engine. what =i have seen is alot of them with bad oil pressure switches that were making the oil light come on . hope this is helpful, good luck.

Where is the oil pressure switch


The sending unit is going to be down by the oil filter. It should have some wires running to it. If you don't have enough room to access the sending unit easily then you can purchase a special socket to extract the old sending unit. Good luck.

Where is the oil pressure switch on 99 ford explorer


You will find the sending unit next to the oil filter underneath. There will be a couple of wires going to the sending unit. Unplug the wires. You might need to purchase a special socket to remove the sending unit if you don't have easy access to the part.

Oil pressure gauge on my 2000 jeep is on


The most common problem is a bad oil pressure switch on the 99-02 grand cherokee with the 4.7l v8. The part has failed on 90% of all 99-02 grand cherokees I have worked on. The housing is junk,but since it has lasted longer then 36,000 miles the factory would not issue a recall. The oil pressure switch can be purchased at any outlet. but have found the duralast was decent. that being said Go to autozone and get part # PS471 (oil pressure switch for 1999-2002 N code 4.7L V8.) chances are if you encounter the same problem after replacement you will need to drop the oil pan and un clog the oil sump.

To replace the switch, under the hood look for the power steering pump on the driver side of the vehicle, to the right and under the p/s pump is the oil pressure switch, If it is wet, its bad for sure, remember to disconnect the battery before service,as not to harm the gauges.
