1999 GSX-R Oil Light Flashing - April 27, 2008, 08:52 PM

I purchased a 1999 GSX-R a week ago and the oil light is flashing when it's on (befor the engine is cranked) and when the engine is running. The oil level is fine and the oil pressure is fine. I've been riding this bike around and there is no engine knocking whatsoever. It's smooth as silk.

What could be wrong?

I'm thinking:

1. Bad Oil Pressure Sensor?
2. Oil is clogged somewhere?
3. Something is up with the ECU?

Anyone ever had this problem before?


Thanks.

By chance did you wash it, ride in the rain, or do anything else that may have facilitated water to get into the electrical system? My oil light on my 10r came on for a little while once when I was caught out in the rain. It was dim--not bright like at startup--and it went off before I got home. I checked around online and found that sometimes they get moisture around the electrical connection to the sensor at the engine. I suppose it's within reason that this may occassionally happen on other bikes. Something to keep an eye out for on forums maybe.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

How do you know that pressure is good..? Did you hook it to a mechanical guage or just read the voltage out of the sending unit..?

Is it on just at idle or at all rpm's?
Any difference between hot and cold oil temps?

Problem solved, it was just a bad oil sensor.
