Hello. My name is Tan.
Low drive oil will only sound and alarm. It will not disable the engine in anyway.
What are your symptoms?
Could I get the engine serial number please?
This is either fuel starvation or an ignition issue. Will engine restart?
Does your son have any way to do a voltage test at the fuel pump?
Tell him to try this. On the starter we need to jump from the battery cable terminal to the purple wire on the start solenoid. Now start engine does it continue to run?
In this diagram jump with a piece of wire from A to D. http://i.imgur.com/SbZmo0h.png
I can call him if you like.
Yes you can I will be here.
I think you are having an issue with the oil pressure switch that runs the fuel pump when engine is running.
Jumping the wire on the starter will verify this is the problem. We are bypassing the oil pressure switch that runs the fuel pump.
Thank you. If it does quit on him this will get him back. From your description of the issue this is the problem. Fingers crossed it gets back safely.
Keep me posted I will be available all afternoon.
Yes it will stay open till we get your issue resolved.
Not related. These oil sensors are bad about the terminals corroding and the sensor failing.
