Where is the oil sending unit on a 1996 mercury cougar xr7 ? Its cause my oil pressure gauge is bouncing up and down...i dont know why...can anybody please help me thank you so much

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

What causes mower deck to sometimes engage after PTO switch gets shut off.


Sounds like a bad connection in the wiring harness from the switch to the PTO clutch. I have a lot where the wires broken at the clutch but still make contact randomly since the insulation was still in place.

Hazard lights wont turn off on a 2003 dodge stratus


The hazard light switch is broken and stuck in the "on" position. Or a wire came off the switch and is touching the other wire on the switch.

Brake light stays on all the time


There are two brake light switches on your bike. One for the front brake and it's located in the right handlebar switch housing and a pressure switch that is usually underneath the bike somewhere for the rear brake. You can find the rear brake light switch by following the metal brake line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder until you come to a switch with some wires on it. On the older bikes, you could unplug the wires to see which switch was holding the light on. If the brake light goes off when you unplug the wires, it's this pressure switch that has the light held on. If the light stays on, it is the front brake light switch. On your bike, check for looseness in the front brake lever. If the lever and pin are worn, this will cause the lever to not depress the switch in the side of the switch housing facing the front brake lever. Your front brake switch may be broken. Odds are that the front brake switch is the one causing the problem.

Good Luck

I have a 2002 dyna wide glide and the brake light stays on all the time


It's probably the front brake light switch is broken causing this. The brake light switch is operated by a tab on the backside of the front brake lever. To get to the switch, you must disassemble the right handlebar switch housing. Remove the two bolts that hold the housing halves together. Loosen the throttle and idle cable adjustments and remove the throttle sleeve. Lower the bottom half and you'll see the switch in the front of the housing. You'll have to unsolder the wires from the old switch and resolder them to the new switch. I don't think Harley has changed them to plug on type wire connectors. This would be my best guess.

Good Luck

Washer fills with water. agitates, does'nt finish cycle. still full of water.


The most common reason for this problem is the Lid Switch. If the lid is not closed, washer will not go into extract (drain) & then spin cycles. Check the lid to see if the plastic piece that pushes the switch down is broken off. You can simulate "Lid Down" condition by depressing switch with a screwdriver. It's located on the right side of the wash drum / tub. There is an oval slot there & you should hear & feel a click when pressed down. Look directly above that slot on the lid bottom for the plastic piece that is commonly broken off.
If it is, you can apply a temporary fix by wedging something in the slot to depress switch while you order a replacement part.

*****WARNING*****

Operating washer with this interlock defeated can cause severe injury!
Washer will continue to spin with the lid up!

You should use this technique for troubleshooting purposes ONLY!
Please reply if this is NOT your problem and I'll post other causes & solutions for you.

Interior lighting stays on


First check your dimmer switch to make sure that you do not have it turned all the way up where it clicks.This is how you turn on your interiors lights in many cars.Second,Make sure there is nothing jamming your doors open,even slightly, and making your interior lights stay on.Third,if none of these are the culprit,check your doors switch inside the jamb where your door swivels out.It may be broken or not operating properly.Check the wiring that is insid the jamb.Many times when and if there is a rubber cover between the jamb and the door,the wiring can break and cause a short.Which in turn grounds out and may cause your lights to stay on or not at all.Hope this helps some;)
