2007 Jeep Commander Q&A

2007 Jeep Commander Question: Oil pressure light comes on occassionally

I have a jeep 2007 with 85000 miles. Recetly purchased it from a dealer. What happens is the oil pressure light comes on occassionally. This happens after the jeep is turned off and then restarted while still warm. Such as when gassing up or a quick stop. If I turn off the jeep and then turn it back on the light turns off. I have checked the oil and it looks to be a the correct level, it is clean and recently changed. There is no noise associated with the light and the engine seems to be running well. Again this has only happened a few times and is not consistent. I am leaning towards a possible sensor issue. -
Answer 1
Could be the oil pressure sensor is malfunctioning and needs replaced. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoV48HMZQQmYAeN6JzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3D2007%2Bjeep%2Bcommander%2Boil%2Bpressure%2Bsensor%26fr%3Dyfp-t-701%26fr2%3Dpiv-web%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D3&w=515&h=222&imgurl=images1.carpartsdiscount.com%2Fauto%2Farchive%2Fpictures%2F317380%2F515%2F1%2FP%2F809ADE2%2Fjeep_commander_2006_engine_oil_pressure_switch_oem_ps404.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.carpartsdiscount.com%2Fauto%2Fparts%2F2006%2Fjeep%2Fcommander%2Fswitches_sensors_and_senders%2Fengine_oil_pressure_switch.html%3F3593%3D317380&size=24+KB&name=%3Cb%3EJeep+Commander+%3C%2Fb%3E2006+Engine+%3Cb%3EOil+Pressure+%3C%2Fb%3ESwitch%2C+OEM%3A+PS404&p=2007+jeep+commander+oil+pressure+sensor&oid=ec246c372dd8235a3e23ad71025ad9ec&fr2=piv-web&fr=yfp-t-701&tt=%253Cb%253EJeep%2BCommander%2B%253C%252Fb%253E2006%2BEngine%2B%253Cb%253EOil%2BPressure%2B%253C%252Fb%253ESwitch%252C%2BOEM%253A%2BPS404&b=0&ni=24&no=3&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=147nbg276&sigb=1400vrp41&sigi=146u8i60v&.crumb=/SRNMbWpXLA -
Answer 2
It could be the oil sending unit...or you may indeed have an oil pressure issue...kudos for you knowing WHEN it happens. But don't risk on "leaning" cause it could cost you $5,000! Anyway, have a shop you trust (or do it yourself with a $15 tester from harbor freight) check the oil pressure under the SAME condition you described and check the oil pressure that way...good oil pressure = bad sensor; bad oil pressure = oil pump issue. -
Answer 3
agree with both but for sure #2 -
