    oil warning light??

    right the problem im having is that when cornering or changing direction the oil warning light on the dash comes on then goes off when driving in a straight line. ive checked the oil and everything seems ok.

    any ideas on wot the problem is please?

    I get this if the oil is close to the min level.

    I just topped up to just a little under max and it is fine now.

    Give it a go - if that dont help then...

    But remember dont over fill it. Go just below the max.

    Try what skuzzle suggested and if it still does it then get the warning sensor checked out.
    Oh what happened to your alloys? Seen your car at your work on steelies last week I think it was, while I was delivering something.

    Get the pressure switch and wiring checked out, I suspect the wiring has probably rubbed through on something.

    well its sorted now. faulty sensor was the problem. the alloys were off the car coz i was setting the tracking and wheel alignment. the laser gauges work better if you have steel rims on the car.
