It could be the oil pressure sending unit or it could be that the engine is idling too low. Your engine should be idling somewhere around a thousand RPM. If your engine is equipped with a carb, the idle stop screw it at the top of the carb toward the front of the bike. Turn it clockwise to increase the idle speed. Make sure you're using 20W50 oil.

Good Luck

Your problem is not the oil pressure sensor, it's because your idling is going too low. If you raise the RPM slightly the light goes out. 650rpm is a little low. I think your car has an Idle control valve ... or look if it has an Idle position sensor. I suspect you have an issue with that.
Hope this helps.

1st thing to try is to replace the oil sinding unit, if the problem percets then have someone install a manuel oil pressuer gauge to check the oil pressuer at hot idle if oil pressuer is less then 10 psi at hot idle then replace the oil pump.

Okay What it means is that the oil in your car is either low in level or the oil pressure at low revolutions is low. I highly recommend you to stop driving the car when this happen because you can internally damage the engine with a low oil or a low pressure of oil. Check the oil level first..make sure level is fine and oil looks good. Black and burned oil will give you a low oil pressure as well. If it happen that your car need a oil change. Make sure you get it done and see if the problem goes away. Very rarely oils pressure sensor goes bad but if oil is new and level is fine you can take the oil pressure sensor and connect a tester for a oil pressure. If this is not under the manufacturer specifications.. oil pump is worn out and you have to replace it for a new one.
Good luck and don't forget to rte me. Thanks

Oil light comes on when car is stopped but goes off when I drive oil recently changed. no leaks


First, check the oil level. Make sure the oil is at the proper level. If it's OK, then there maybe an oil pump problem or the oil pressure sending unit problem.
A Mechanic with an oil pressure gauge will be able to determine if the oil pump is working correctly at idle or the oil pressure sensor is bad.

Oil preasure light comes on


Your oil sensor may be faulty, or your may have a leak since you said the fluid level is okay.

Oil Pressure Light Comes On after 10 min of Driving


You may not have put the right amount of oil in your car, your oil pressure sensor could be faulty, or you may have a leak.

By revving your engine, you're increasing the pressure and thus turning off the light and making the sensor think that it's at the correct pressure.
