Possibly need to have the light reset again and see if that fixes the problem.
turn your car to the on position where all the dash lights come on
then press your trip reset odometor peg in for about 20 to 30 seconds the light should turn off
turn off your car then start if that doesnt work take to where you had oil changed and have them reset it. let me know if that helped thanks and good luck

I'm having rough idle and smoke all of a sudden with my golf mk4 The oil warning lights up in dash. Oil level ok. Spark plugs not burning well. Replace spark plugs, changed oil filter, changed


Smoke is not a good sign. Running rough is not a good sign. Oil light not a good sign. You could have a combination of bad things, most likely expensive. Suggest professional help. Smoke can be bad rings or holed piston. Low oil pressure can be bad bearing or oil pump.

Oil light blinks on


If your oil level is good, that is between the low and high marks, that light blinking is an indicator there is a problem with your oil pressure. The light flashing could be low oil level, a bad oil pressure sensor, your oil pump going out or a clogged line or pick up. Start by checking your oil level, then test the sensor if both are good drain your oil and pull the oil pan off to see if the pick up is clogged, if it is clean it. If everything is good at this point then the problem is the pump itself and you'll need to replace the pump.

Oil warning light flashing mean?


Normally, if you get a oil warning light signal (flashing) could be a few things related to it. Number one, you are low on oil. Check your oil level and make sure it is at full level. Number two, is possibly oil filter is dirty, ( time for service,oil change) or problem with oil pump or oil pump pressure. BUT I would first start with checking oil level and then maybe a oil change.

Oil light flashing on intermittently when at temperature and only at idle. Car 2008 Mitsubishi van Have had vehicle into Mitsubishi Agent and 2nd mechanic who all say vehicle in very good condition...


Well technically you should be using a 10W-30 with a vehicle like that unless it calls for a heavier grade. If the oil level is good (don't overfill it otherwise it can cause the light to go off) check the oil pressure switch and the oil sender unit. It is possible the oil pump is bad if it is fluctuating pressure or from running to heavy of a grade of oil you may have damaged the pump. The pump can test fine during diagnostics but usually wont fluctuate until under load.

Oil light flashing on dash


check for proper oil level in engine with dipstick if ok.then install mechanical oil pressure gauge on oil pressure sending unit to verify proper oil pressure, if pressure ok. then replace the sending unit/sensor, if pressure not ok. , you may need to remove engine oil pan to check for restriction on oil pick-up tube screen. if ok replace pump. but also check clearance on mains and connecting rods.

I HAVE A LIGHT ON MY DASH ITS A ORANGE OIL CAN


Check the fluid level and change the oil if you've used the car 3,000 mi. or more.

Usually low oil pressure lights are red and are more serious than the amber lights.

Oil light in dash is constantly turn in on.! I already change de especifil type of oil, filters, and air filter and still have the problem.


The oil light serves two functions...when the oil is low or the oil pressure drops to an unsafe level. Please have the oil pump checked to make certain the pump is not going out. If the oil pump is fine and the oil level is full, then it could just be a short in the wire for the light.
