Oil pressure switch in car

Almost all cars are equipped with a pressure gauge or lamp connected to an oil pressure switch. It tends to flash and change color when a problem occurs. You must immediately stop and turn off the engine. Let it cool down to avoid the risk of the motor turning off. The switch basically works by triggering the light or gauge if the pressure drops below a certain level.
