Need to know where the fuse is for oil sending unit on a 1998 Buick Park Avenue with a 3800 v6


There is no fuse for the oil sending unit ! Oil lite on , gauge not working ? Do you know what PCM five volt reference voltage is ? The PCM - engine computer supply's a stable 5 volt voltage to engine sensors . The oil pressure sensor is one of these sensors .
Engine Oil Pressure Sensor
The engine oil pressure sensor is a solid state transducer. The engine oil pressure sensor sends oil pressure information to the PCM. The PCM then transmits the oil pressure information to the IPC via serial data.
Engine oil pressure is displayed on the scan tool in volts. A low voltage reading indicates low oil pressure. As the oil pressure increases, the voltage level also increases. The normal range of the engine oil level sensor signal voltage is 0.5 volts at 0 kPa (0 psi) to 4.5 volts at 883 kPa (128 psi).

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex
