Cool Check Oil Light

Hello,

I have another issue. When I start my Bonne up the check oil level light comes on in the dash for about 1 minute. When I drive a bit it goes off. I have checked the oil level on multiple occassions and it is always at the right level. What could i check or do to fix this?

Thanks

Sounds about right to me. Most likely the sensor.

Is the light red or yellow?

Low oil Pressure will light a red light, and low oil Level will light up yellow.
