Oil light not coming on before engine start

Postby redmanjp » October 9th, 2021, 12:10 pm

For some months now the oil light hasn't been coming on when I out the ignition in the ON position before starting. A mechanic said the 'oil unit' need replacing. What is this- is it the oil pressure switch?

And is there a way to tell if it's the bulb itself?

The unit screws on the block with a single wire jack plugging into it. Very simple to replace. Unit itself isn't very expensive either.
The bulb can be tested with a multimeter for continuity.
