Hi,

I have a 2001 E46 325i and about 20 seconds after the car starts the oil light comes on orange for around 15 seconds then goes out. It does this whether the car is warm or cold and of course I have checked the oil level which is at the correct level.

Anyone have any ideas why it's doing this?

Cheers
Simon

Orange do you mean yellow, if so it's a common fault, the sensor is at the bottom of the sump so really it has to replaced at oil change time, dailydoggys done a how to guide if you do a search
