If it was faintly lit, isnt that the same as being on, dim?

Idk. But layvon said he's going to ship me a replacement. And I'm considering taking the offer from jack to learn how to do this.

My dummy light comes on dim all the time. It's just a poor connection because I have a pressure gauge confirming that I always have at least 30-100 psi. It needs to be fully lit to be considered "on".

Thank you. I have not checked the connection but I'm also thinking this may be

The light was on very faintly when I turned my car on. But you can tell it was like a light behind it lighting it up. Car got warm couldn't see anything
Since you've dodged it by saying LIT isn't ILLUMINATED, here you clearly say the light was on.

Just go get a mechanical gauge from an auto parts store and confirm whether or not its a faulty connection or something more serious. It will take 5 minutes to install it and check.

haha....that's the best advice so far. You can get one for like $15. Real oil pressure is real.

I only got basic AAA they tow 3 miles for free.
I don't have a shop. A garage and a lift, yes. I don't do the car stuff for a living, but I have had a loose oil pickup before.


Do the mechanical oil pressure gauge first. It ain't going to lie (electric ones can). Hook it up and watch the pressure. When the light is dimly on, see what the pressure is.

Jack and Honda Slayer -

Do you think the safest way to check the oil pressure with the mech gauge to disconnect the crank sensor, and pull spark plugs out? That way if there isn't any oil pressure at least the crank isn't being forced into the bearings because of compression? That way if they aren't getting full oil pressure ( or any at all ) there isn't that much more force of friction?

Also - I've done a complete motor tear down and build, and haven't seen a location that I can hook a gauge up to in 5 min. I know there is a way because there are too many people in here saying it is easy. ... Only places I know of are the oil galleys, which aren't exactly a common adapter you can pick up at your favorite autostore.
