Hi all. I’ve got a 2004 Cooper S, it runs great, no problems at all.
When I turn the ignition on to the 2nd position my warning lights come on, except for the oil pressure warning light. It never comes on at all, neither yellow or red.
I ran the dashboard test and when I do that the oil pressure light comes on red and then yellow so I know the indicator is working.
Anyone got any ideas why the oil pressure/level indicator wouldn’t be working?
Thanks

No definite solution yet as I haven’t had chance to change the sensor.
What I have noticed is that the oil light occasionally comes on if the car has been run, is then turned off and then back on again to ignition position 2 (without starting the engine). The Oil light comes on briefly and one time stayed on for a good 10 seconds while the ignition was in position 2. As soon as i started the car it went back off, as expected.
I think it’s just a dodgy sensor in my case. The garage I use locally said there was no sign of oil pressure problems and I’m taking it back there to have the sensor looked at hopefully this week or next.
