Default Oil warning light on...oil topped off?

The oil indicator light comes on every other start up. I'd start the car, it comes on. I turn the car fully off, then start it up again, no light....?

This occured a day after I changed the oil. I've changed the oil on this car since day one. Same procedure, same oil, same oil filter, same tools, same oil catch....you get my point.

Does the oil pressure or level sensor go bad? Or should I chase the connector...? Or.....?????

One way to verify if its motor or electrical would be to pull the sensor and "T" in a mechanical gauge for a while.

Point me in the right direct....

Where is the location of the sensor. I don't have a gauge, just the light.

Thanks!

Preaty common problem. Put in a new sensor. Think it is on the right rear of the eng looking from the frunt. Mine does it all the time. Turn of and it goes away.

BUMP for this thread.

So is the resolve actually the oil sensor? It's sounding like that you all resolved this problem, but still it sounds foggy. Please submit your results in this situation. Thanks

The oil sending unit does go bad. A few owners have replaced theirs to cure the problem.

scarabY2k, a lot of the aftermarket sensor do NOT like the PT's, however OEM's work fine.
