    oil light on

    Oil light came on a few days ago checked the oil was ok.
    Changed the oil just to be on the safe side oil light still on.
    put a new oil pressure switch in but still light on.

    Any ideas would be great.

    Sounds like the wire to the switch could be shorting out the earth somewhere

    My car did this yesterday when I broke pretty hard. I was comin down a sweet little country track and got to the junction at the bottom and had to break quite hard, and I saw a red flash behind my steering wheel but didn't see which light it was.

    Then broke quite hard again later on last night while driving in a straight line and the light came on again and went off. Checked oil, and it's fine.

    Gonna check the cable.
