    Lightbulb Oil Light

    Hey guys wonder if you can help me. After a year of starting my car up i got a afm which removed my engine management light problem. Im now showing my oil light being illuminated. I have previously had the car serviced about 2 months before i stopped using the car and was having problems with the oil light then.

    The light would come on when i started the car and would stay illuminated untill i started to either drive or rev the car.

    The oil sensor was changed during the service and solved the problem for about 2 days when it came back again. Thought nothing of it until i started the car and it wont go away even when i rev the engine. Not tried to drive the car yet incase engine seizes.

    There is oil in the sump have checked the dipstick and it is showing full so im stumped as not mechanically gifted.

    Any help is greatfull appreciated.

    Unless there is a problem with the wiring for the oil pressure switch, ie, broken or bare and touching earth somewhere, you need to get your oil pressure checked asap in case you have a blocked pick up or oil pump problem

    If it is the oil pump which i think it may be as a couple of folk i know reckon it does seem to be the oil pump.

    Is it an expensive job to get sorted via a garage.

    Trying to get a rough idea before i go chuck it into a garage to get charged hundreds of moula.

    Thanks in advance Mark
