As the engine temp increases, oil returns to the sump (pump location) faster. You may just be low on oil. When its cold, the light is on at times...

Hi !
Please check as to how old the oil is i.e. how many miles have you driven without changing the engine oil. The old oil looses its viscosity resulting in low oil pressure which ignites the lamp.
It will be advisable that in the next oil change you first Flush the engine with a cleaner and then only change the oil along with a new oil filter. This would clean the sump, oil pump and the censors resulting in a smoother drive.
Regards
Berry.

yes it could.If the alternator is bad your battery light should come on while running.when u replaced the battery it should have ran good for a minute till the alternator started draining draining your battery.Then the battery light would come on.I would replace it or have it checked.You can check it by starting it up and keep any elelectric off radio,lights,ect.then disconnect the battery if the car stalls its the alternator.the car would stay running with good alternator

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Hi David,

Sounds very suspicious of a failing alternator. BMW alternators are notorious for failing when hot. I would high recommend having the alternator checked while hot..ie after a long test drive. Usually the voltage regulators fail, but I would recommend the entire alternator. Both Bosch and Valeo brands are usually interchangeable. I would recommend the cheaper price of the 2. It could save you a few hundred dollars.

I had a BMW 540i 2000 and that happen to me, my advice is to get the battery out of the car and recharge it. It would be advisable to have it check for malfunctioning. If it is ok, put it back on and the car will start. If not good, put a new battery, the car will start and all the lights will work in order.

Probably you could loos your radio set up and clock set up if you took too much time in the replacement of the battery, don't worry, reset the clock and the radio stations.

I am guessing these are the battery and oil light indicators. Check your oil level IMMEDIATELY. Make sure it's full. Your battery level may also be low; however these are normal to come on right before you start almost any car and they'll go off a few seconds after.

Where is the oil pressure sending unit on a 1999 Isuzu Rodeo 4 cylinder engine ? On Occassion, after driving for a few minutes, the oil pressure indicator light will flash and sometimes stay on. Usually,...


Sender unit is situated on the LH side(if you're sitting in the vehicle) of the cylinder block ahead of the starter motor. Problems with oil pressure are rarely because of a faulty sender. Your problem starts once the oil has heated up which would indicate worn internals. Start by replacing the oil and oil filter. If this does not solve the problem other possible solutions are worn Main and big-end bearings, worn camshaft bearings, or worn crankshaft and/or camshaft. All of the above require engine removal.
A problem I have had with my diesel is a failed O-ring on the oil pump. This repair also requires engine removal.
