What was your oil pressure when it came on?

It's in your EVIC. Use the buttons on your steering wheel.

Up date
Been to the dealer today
They say went though it however the computer cold no show any issues nor were there any stored information as to light coming on.

Good & bad
At least it is now recorded

Dealer thinks i may b a fault in the light
Told to keep an eye on it if it comes back try & take picture

Re: Oil light WK2 MY13 Limited JGC

I had my engine light come on intermittently. After numerous trips back to the dealer, they had to change oil filter first them oil pump altogether. Haven't had the issue reoccur - fingers crossed. I bought a Jeep!

Run thru your VIC so you know where to find the oil pressure and temperature quickly, so you can tell if the sensors are having a bad day.

The pressure sensors on the older Jeeps were worse than anything Lucas ever came up with, dunno about the newer ones.
