05/02/2004 13:03:35   dhpaul   I have two possibly related problems.
1. The oil pressure light has stopped coming on when I turn the ignition on. If I take the wire off the sensor and earth it and then turn ignition on it lights up. Does this mean the sensor is faulty?
2. The temperature gauge also is not registering at all now. I tried earthing the wire similarly, as the manual suggests that then the gauge should move to H with the ignition on, but the gauge didn't move. Does this mean the gauge or sensor is faulty?
The engine runs ok, has oil and water! I took the instrument out, checked bulbs and conections, all looked ok. The fuel gauge and battery light work fine.
Any help appreciated
