Hi guys
I have been having the oil light coming on on the dashboard, had an oil replacement first then replaced the sensor too but the light is still coming on, has anyone had this problem and solved it or knows about it Smile
cheers,
Murray.

I know its not an easy job but have you checked for a blocked pipe and checking the oil pump is doing its job.Usually the light only comes on when there is little or no oil pressure ie below 7psi.

Have you tried pushing the scroll button that will show up either oil pressure or oil level fault ?

i am guessing the tt display must differ from the v8 as i dont have a oil can light , the scroll button is to the left of the steering wheel its in the same cluster of buttons that adjust the clock and button for fuel level in litres

Good suggestion mate, I'll look into that, my mechanic suggested getting the auto electrician too have a look next, he thought maybe a wiring fault ?

if its a single pin sensor then the light will only be on when the sensor is at earth eg no pressure present , you have two easy checks you could do either run a wire from the sensor into the cabin and just have a normal warning bulb if the light still comes on its either faulty sensor or you have low oil pressure , the other option is if you just pull the connector off the sensor and the light comes on then its more than likely wiring fault or faulty dash cluster, on my prelude i had a warning light on the dash saying i had a brake light out i checked everything in the brake light circuit from the bulbs to the sensor relays, handbrake light switch even the low fluid level sensor in the end it turned out to be a dash cluster fault
