oil warning light
« on: 14:24, Sat 09 October 2010 »
Hello all

What would make the oil warning light come on,It isn't getting an oil pressure reading at all so assumed this would be the cause ie loose conection.

After some reading apparently the two arn't linked,getting abit worried now,the oil could do with a change as its thin,and the oil is topped up enough.

Engine pulls like a train so hoping this is an electrical fault I can find?

Any tips on where to look at for dodgy wires?

Thanks

There are two different setups.

1. Oil pressure gauge and low oil pressure light use the same sender/wiring.
2. Oil pressure gauge and low oil pressure light have seperate senders and wiring.

Follow the turbo feed down to where it joins the engine block, you should see the sender/senders there.
