#6 of 8 low oil pressure indicator on '97 Olds Aurora
Jun 19, 2008 (11:57 am)
My Aurora, after reaching normal operating temp, begins to chime & low oil pressure light comes on at low idle, goes away as soon as I increase the rpm's to about 1,000. I've replaced the oil pressure sending unit,..this problem began right after a GM dealership removed & rebuilt the heads due to excessive oil leaks. The engine never kncks, smokes, overheats, or uses any oil. The oil remains amber colored between changes. Any suggestions?

Did you replace the oil pressure sending unit AFTER you noticed the pressure issue or when you had the head work done?

I think this problem was solved and also documented really well with a procedure and photos at the website: http://184.108.40.206/~aghl/Aurora/index.html
The problem is caused by a small amount of grease inside the turn signal lever slowly flowing over time between the electrical contacts inside the turn signal - intermittently shorts-out the headlights or parking light switches causing them to flicker on and off.
Cheaper than buying a new Mutifunction switch is to open the existing one and just wipe away the excess grease.
