Default oil light when stopping?

Sometimes when stopping a little hard the "oil" idiot light comes on.
Anyone ever heard of this?
I don't have any codes showing.
Maybe gremlins?

could be an obvious sign your PT is running low on oil?

Yeah. I thought of that, but when I checked it, it looked ok.
I need to do an oil change anyway, so guess that's next.

It could also be the OPS is going bad,or the connector may be loose.

This happens to mine too. I put a quart in (honestly I know I should check it first but half the time I don't. Bad I know.) and it resolves the problem. But then again my PT seems to drink oil and brake fluid like a frat boy at a kegger too.... So... *shrugs* I never see any spots where I park where there might be a drip or a leak for anything on it so I just have to guess that my Stephan is thirsty.
