Hello~

 

I have a 2015 Expedition 600ACE. Both the engine light and oil lamp came on. My buddy used his reader to get the codes and they were for bad oil pressure switch and oil pressure. I changed the switch, but with no luck. Changed oil and filter, still no luck.  He is gone for the time being and I don't have access to the computer. Any ideas what to check until I can use his reader?

 

 

Thanks!

After changing the switch do you still get both oil & check engine light or just the engine icon?

Sounds like oil pump failure

Is the oil lamp still lit or just check engine? Check engine light will stay on even if the issue is solved. Best way to be sure you don’t have an actual problem is hook up an actual pressure gauge.

Both icons stay on. I double checked oil level, realized I put too much and and siphoned off so now the level is good, but both faults are still showing.

Clear the codes then see what you got, if both dash indicators stay the same then it's sounds like a low pressure problem,  first check the wiring plug into the switch to see if it's all good there, as stated even if the oil light goes off the engine light will stay on for a few hours driving before it shuts off if the codes are not cleared.

Thanks everyone. I'm hoping it's just clearing the codes and that solves it...

So I have been able to clear the codes, lights come back on. Checked manual and it said to check the ECMA-3E for continuity. That checked out fine. Then I checked the battery and it was giving a reading of 12.18V. I cannot find if that is too low and electricity is beyond foreign to me. If it is too low, would that cause the issues seen?

Put a pressure gauge on it before you run it again.

With the engine running it should read 13.8V ( or around that) I believe, for sure 12.18 is too low...was the fan active when you read it?

I had the computer off the machine and it tore apart to get to that point, so I didn't try it while running...

12.18V is normal if the engine wasn't running

That's a bit low. A charged battery at rest should be at least 12.5, if not 12.8 or 13. I don't think that's the source of the issue, but...

Put a pressure gauge on it before you run it again.

My thought exactly. Had to do it with mine. Just remove sending unit and screw gauge right in. Standard 1/8 pipe thread. You need a nipple and few fittings because it is set back.
