Assuming your oil is full and you have changed the oil regularly the light is telling you you have low oil pressure

untreated this will lead to engine failure

if you are lucky, its just an oil pressure switch issue

that being said... check you oil level and/or change your oil and see what happens

What does it mean when the oil light in the 1995 Cadillac Sedandeville 4.9 comes on

It can mean one of two things. Either your oil level is too low, meaning more than 1 quart, or your pressure is too low. The first thing to do is check the oil level in the engine and top it up. If the light goes out after this then everything is okay. If the light stays on you should get the oil pressure checked with a mechanical guage to get an accurate reading.

Get this done as soon as possible. Manufacturers don't give you much room with these lights, when they come on you are very close to the engine meltdown point. Hope this helps.

The low oil pressure light keep coming and then it;s telling me to turn the car off

{: ) It wants you to turn the car off based on its current reading that your oil pressure is low. It is some sort of protection for your engine. But why will you do that while on your trip? But to be very sure, you can check out the oil yourself manually. Check for proper oil level and look for any signs of oil leak.
If the oil check is fine, you can continue driving and deal with low oil pressure light later, when you are ready. If the oil system is at proper levels and no leaks, it can probably be a faulty oil sensor, a wiring, or a module issue. It can also be an oil pump problem. The worst that can happen is a weak engine compression. I suggest you go to your autoshop to check the problem as soon as possible.

Check oil level Light on 95 Cadillac eldorado

Did you check your oil level? If the oil level is OK and the light will not shut off, check the connector at the oil level sensor. It is located in the side of the engine oil pan. If the connector and wires are OK, then you may need to replace the sensor. It simply screws out of the oil pan, but you will most likely lose a little oil in the process, so be sure to use a drain pan.

Im getting low oil pressure reading on my 95 cadillac deville.. what should I be looking to replace?

always start at the least expensive item. ths would be the oil filter. if its a double wall one,switch to a single. if this doesnt work,then test the oil sending unit. alot of the older caddys do this,and as long as you dont hear lifters tapping,i wouldnt sweat it.

1995 4.9 ltr 78k mi. When car is stopped for red

Probably an oil pump, will it still do this if you rev the engine a little while stopped? If not then you have an oil pump that could be failing or hopefully it is the pressure sensor that is off. either way don't chance it
