hello Brad

Customer:

Did you read the question i have

Brad :

I have researched you issues and I found a Case on this:

Brad :






















Case Number958885701
Vehicle IssueThe oil light flickers on/off at idle. The oil pressure checks out fine with a mechanical gauge. 98-04 LH, 2001 + JR41/JR27.;This is not be confused with any other gauge or indicator light issue, its only pertains to the oil light, usually it will only flicker at idle. The oil pressure checks fine with a mechanical gauge.
System or ComponentActivates / Operates by Itself / Ghost Cycle,Flickers / Flashing,Will Not Turn Off;08-36-99;Customer Concern (No DTCs);Cluster / Mechanical Instrument Cluster (MIC/eMIC),Oil Pressure Warning Light;Interior;Yes - Continuously
RecommendationThere is a tsb listed for the 98-99 LH cars (tsb 08-36-99). But truly this tsb concept applies to any one wire oil light system. The oil light will come on when the oil presssure drops below specs, the oil switch is actually a pressure transducer, but in order for the switch to work properly it must be vented to ATMOSPHERIC air. The problem enlies when the vent of the switch gets pugs with dirt, if so, the operation of the switch is altered because the switch cannot compare the outside air pressure (Barometric air pressure) to the oil pressure created by the engine. See tsb 08-36-99, clean out the harness end of the switch thoroughly.
