i have the same sort of problem but the light normally goes on and off when i take a hard corner quite fats.. i got told it could just be where the oil goes up and down in the engine and some times reads theres not enough.. but i also had it where when i tooked out the dipsit and wiped it etc. that it showed there was no oil :huh:
