2007 Mitsubishi raider random oil light

I noticed a few weeks ago at stop lights my oil light would come on. of course, like anybody else, I panicked and pulled over to the nearest convenience store and open the hood and check the oil. Much to my relief, it was full and clean.

What is causing this oil light to come on.? sometimes I'll get up in the morning and the oil light will pop on just from sitting in the garage until I drive a few feet and then it stops dinging.

There is no consistent way of driving where you can repeat this. So my concern is this semicolon is my oil pump going bad? Is the oil sensor bad?

It's been my experience that major issues like this, usually have some silly simple solution. And since my local dealer has moved almost a hundred miles away, I want to check here first before I start on that trek.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions that you can offer.

Check the electrical connection to the sensor, eg for corrosion.

Thanks for the quick reply, I am curious I've been searching all over the nets, where is this sensor at? My search results have been coming up with Jeeps a Dodge Dakota which is probably the closest. And miscellaneous other Mitsubishi cars. But for some reason the raider is extremely elusive on the net for information.

My first thought was a free online manual, something like https://cardiagn.com/mitsubishi-engi...al-online-pdf/ but that's not your car? Perhaps get the engine type number from the VIN plate on the car, and then look up the engine specially. Perhaps someone here knows the engine model number already?

without going to the mechanic, is there a way to tell if the pump is bad?

The symptoms are intermittent, but I can't think of a bad pump that could do that, so I think the pump is good. Anyone else know?

agreed, but nice to hear a second opinion. It's been getting worse (that dinging noise is annoying) I might just replace it, just to cancel out a faulty one. Does this truck have a alert for oil change? if so, is there a way to turn it off? It is just a oil light only.

In the absence of a manual, one simple phone call to the dealer service area to ask where the sensor is?

Oil pressure sensor needs checked. Usually the dealer can check it for you.

Sadly the Mitsubishi dealer closed down, in our METROPOLIS!!! and the closest one is almost 100mi.
I suppose any dealer can do this or favorite mechanic?


And due to the intermittant light, safe to say the pump is probably fine? Oil is still clean, and full. Oil change due in 1,000 miles
