FYI next to the temp and OP sensors are the ones for the gauges as well. The two temp ones look alike and the OP gauge is a big bell shape while the alarm sensor is smaller.

Disconnect one at a time to isolate. First verify lube level, sometimes is low but at rest does not cause a fault but then underway was the fluid sloshes around the alarm will trigger because the float drops from the fluid moving about.

The reservoir was low I filled it and alarm did not go off Then I pulled the sensor from the oil pressure and it stopped Put it back on and all is good ??? Does it reset itself??
My oil pressure is around 50 at idle and around 80 at 2500 RPMs isn't that high???? it was always high even before the alarm sounded

Thanks for your help
John

Yes that pressure seems high so I might question the reading, either the gauge or sendor may be off.

The OP switch will reset if pressure is there.

What do you mean by pulled the sensor off, removed the wire and reinstalled or removed the sensor itself?

The wire could have had a loose or corroded.

So after you reinstalled the wire on the OP switch the alarm is no longer sounding, correct?

If correct than I must assume it did not have a good connection prior to removing the wire.
