Q: why oil pressure indicator is lighting continuously

asked by on

why oil pressure indicator is lighting continuously at dashboard since last 7 days ?

My car has 20 miles.

Hello:

The oil light comes on when an error is detected by the ECU in regards to low oil pressure, low oil levels or troubles with oil related components such as the oil pump or oil cooler. This light is triggered by an error code, that can be downloaded by a professional mechanic during a check engine light inspection.
