Question Oil Light

Hi gang,

My Oil Pressure Warning Light doesn’t come on when I switch my key on.

I changed my oil about 2 weeks ago. Could I have knocked a connector loose? If so, where would it likely be?

When I did the oil change I had all the plastic forward of the seat off.

The only reference I can find is the Wiring Harness diagram (p 36) in the Spare Parts Manual: Chassis. It’s a bit vague, IMO.

Is there any way to do a light test to check the bulbs in the indicator lights?

TIA.

I think the oil pressure switch is right behind the front cylinder, and yes it is very easy to accidentally pull off. Pull off your left tank and look behind the front cylinder...it's easy to pull the oil switch wire off when you pull the tank vent? or one of those hoses off.

Good catch, you should see the light on startup.

Bingo!

Even after you telling me where it is, it still took me 20 minutes to find the connection. The male end of the spade fitting is hidden under the fuel line and behind a coolant line. With the airbox on, it ain't easy to see (or get at to reconnect...). I found the female end as soon as I took the tank off, but finding where it connects was not apparent, to say the least.

I owe you a beer for that one.

Cheers

Eek Oil warning light flickering

New owner of a 2006 950 Adventure, I put about 1000 miles on it, it has 58,000 on it. I stared out on a ride just now and I saw that when I raised the rpm's with clutch engaged and quick throttle twist the Oil Warning Light would "Flicker" with the raise of the RPM's?
I turned around as I saw it in the driveway and turned around before I got 100 yards from home.
I do thank you for your help here!

Could be a bad switch. Try that first. There's a landrover part that cross references w the stock one.

Hopefully it's not the cam chains. Just did mine at about 40k. They were stretched and after the replacement it's quiet and no light.

Good luck. Don't give up on her. As a last resort black tape over the instrument panel works wonders...
