I just changed the oil in this. It reads full. I have checked the codes and all I get is code 55. When I start to stop, the light will come on and starts to flicker. But when I start up again it runs fine. What would cause this?

    there is no code for oil pressure.
    your motor may have worn bearings, clogged pick up screen or bad oil pump. if you do not get this checked, you will eventually seize the motor.
