The Oil Pressure Sensor measures the oil pressure in a vehicles engine. Oil pressure sensor can refer to the oil pressure switch or oil pressure Sender. The oil pressure switch is a mechanical switch that is activated via oil pressure. This switch is responsible for turn on and off the low oil indicator. One some vehicles the oil pressure switch will prevent starting in the event of failure, or it may cause the vehicle to shutdown.

- Oil pressure light on
- Oil pressure gauge reading incorrect
- Blinking oil pressure light
- Check engine light
