Re: Oil lamp when using brakes

The oil pressure light is usually a red oil can symbol and goes off at about same time as battery light.
Oil level light maybe a different colour but not sure on yours.

The oil level sensor is like an electric dipstick and may be fitted at back of engine. When you brake, the oil in the bottom of the engine surges forward and the sensor is uncovered. If it's too sensitive it will bring the light on.

The coolant tank is connected to the..radiator.
The radiator is connected to the..engine
sing along everyone,
the engine is connected to.....everything else...bit of a short song that.
