The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate anytime the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. When the engine is running, the light also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:
If the oil pressure light does not work, perform the following:
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. If the lamp does not light, check for a broken or disconnected wire around the engine and oil pressure sending unit switch.
  3. If the wire at the connector checks out OK, pull the connector loose from the switch and, with a jumper wire, ground the connector to the engine.
  4. With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, check the warning lamp. If the lamp lights, make sure the oil pressure switch is properly grounded in the cylinder block, and if so replace the oil pressure switch. If the lamp still fails to light, check for a burned out lamp or disconnected socket in the instrument cluster.
To diagnose an oil pressure light that stays on, perform the following:
  1. Check the engine oil level and top off as necessary. If the engine was 2 or more quarts low on oil, test start the engine after topping off the oil level and recheck the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on, stop the engine immediately and go to the next step.
  2. Disconnect the wire at the sending unit, then turn the ignition switch to theON position. If the light remains on, check the wire from the sending unit to the gauge for being shorted to ground and repair as necessary. If the light goes out, turn the ignition switch OFF and go to the next step.
  3. Replace the oil pressure sending switch with a known good switch.
  4. Start the engine and check the oil pressure light operation. If the light stays on with the engine running, stop the engine immediately to avoid severe engine damage until the cause of the problem can be determined.

WARNING
If the oil pressure light remains on while the engine is started, stop the engine immediately. Do not operate the engine until the cause of the problem can be determined. Operating an engine with low oil pressure will cause severe internal damage.

Possible causes for an oil pressure light to stay on are:


Pinched or grounded sensor wireDefective oil pressure sending unitRestricted or severely leaking oil filterExcessive internal engine bearing clearance.Insufficient or severely contaminated engine oilBlocked oil pump pickup screen or severely worn oil pump

Oil warning light keeps coming on


if you don`t hear any engine noise then its more than likely the oil pressure switch is acting up. this is likely a coincidence that it happened after the oil change. have the oil pressure switch replaced.

Engine warning light on dash


Possible that the oil pressure is low , the oil level is low or the oil pressure switch has failed.
Check level of oil, check for pressure of the oil to the sensor -swap and test and finally check for error codes to confirm the case.

Oil light flickers when in idle. Oil on dip stick measures fine.


install a mechanical guage to test the actual pressure, if its fine the sending unit is faulty, if nor remove the oil pan and check the oil pickup for blockage,

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.

I have an oil light coming on sporadically. It seems to occur more often on a hill or in a turn and it act like the oil is low, but it isn't. So it acts like there is a oil level switch, not unlike a fuel...


No, it has a oil pressure sensor. I would suggest you remove the filter and install a Purolator, Mopar, or Wix filter. If the problem persists and you know positively the oil level is not under or over-full, then you need to have the oil pressure tested. Notice I said, over-full. An over full condition is just as bad as not enough oil. Only check the oil level when the engine has not been run for 30 minutes and the vehicle is parked on a level surface or you will get a false reading. In the end you may find you have a defective oil pressure sending unit, but make sure that is the problem.

Hi i have a problem with my car i was coming from work and the oil pressure warning light went on then went i got home the engine was making a noise i check the oil level and was ok so i dont know what is...


when you see oil pressure warning light it is shows means no pressure from the oil pump.
so you got oil also you heard noise coming from the engine when there is no oil coming for lubrication simply all moving part makes noise like cam-shaft and cylinder head.

so check the oil pump pressure.

Oil light keeps coming on at an idle


ok. oil ight is probably nothing more than a faulty pressure switch.You can have pressure checked at same screw in port. 15psi is ok...just. very cheap to replace. Ign control module is probably the cut-out fault. You cant really test it; repair by substitution is the trick.

Engine Transmission Light coming on intermittently


low pressure in the tranny, did you check the oil level in park? if so you might have to check it in gear with someone holding it on the brakes, then re-check... hopefully it isn;t the pressure solenoid.... $$$$$$.... they can be expensive, cheers!
