when an oil lite comes on, it means one thing only, that your oil level is low. so in your case the oil is at the rite level untill u brake, thats wen the oil pushes forward away from level senser and reads no oil, once you pull of again it will be force to the back and touching the senser, saying it's ok. the only other thing i can think it can be is your oil is way to thin so it splashes about in the sump.
that's all i can think it is mate.
cheers mick

Hi,

My oil light used to flash like your describing on my Escort cabby it was a doggy oil sensor as the oil level was fine.
