The low oil indicator light does not come on when my 08

Customer Question

The low oil indicator light does not come on when my 08 Honda Civic SI is 3 quarts low on oil. Also my car is using an excessive amount of oil. I had the oil changed about two months ago and it was 3 quarts low this morning.
JA: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?
Customer: No that is going to happen tomorrow if I can find one in the small town I live in.
JA: I'll pass this info along to the Honda Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Are you fixing your Civic Si yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have recently discovered the problem. I have been watching the oil level. My husband is going to look at it tomorrow. Yes, we will fix it our self if it is an easy fix.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

I need to talk to someone tomorrow. It is dark and I don't have much light out there. I did not realize I would be chatting tonight. I will be back on tomorrow.
