strange battery light goings on

Postby rodgerq » 24 Jan 2007, 23:28

well what happens is when i turn on the ignition the oil pressure light comes on as you would expect, but no battery light.

then when the car starts the battery light comes on and the oil pressure light just dims down.

this only just started happening, we literally stopped the car, restarted it and this was happenig.

anyone any ideas as to what could cause it?

It sounds like a dodgy earth somewhere that's finally given up. Maybe in round the instrument panel, or even somewhere in the engine bay where the oil pressure sender is?

I'm sure others will have alternative theories.

No - I'd guess a dodgy earth too.
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!
