    Default engine oil check light on and off helppppppp!!!

    any bro can help analyse? today morning car was fine while on the way back realise the engine oil light was on when move off it goes off... then tap brake the engine oil light comes like faded then when comes to a full stop with the foot brake
    the engine lights come back on... parked wait 20 to 30 mins take the oil measurements was at the top bite of the dip wait 30 mins again took measurement still the same engine oil Looks healthy so i let it cool down further more
    then started the engine the lights was gone i drove to another parking lot the engine lights was back again OMG. when stationary the lights are on when i stationary press the accelerator the lights go off..

    any bros experience this type of engine problems before?

    pressure problems? sensor spoil? is it possible still safe to drive until the weekends where i go and see the mech?

    Maybe ur oil pressure sensor is faulty and it is not registering properly thus ur ECU has registered an error code, resulting in the appearance of the check light. Not sure if it is serious or not, I suggest u check with ur workshop over the phone whether if it is safe for u to drive or have it towed to ur workshop to have it checked by a code scanner to read the registered error code to find out which component is causing the prob. good luck

    This is a small problem. An EO switch only cost $40-$50 including labour.
