No, a sending unit is for a gauge, and the switch is for a warning light.

Go to the dealer check the last 6 VIN digits from your truck they will know If its wired or not for DRL then buy the module and install it. You have to remove the stereo and CB panel. the plug is underneath and is labeled DRL module.just plug in the new module approx 150 $ direct from KW dealer and your good to go. Inside dash youl find fuse panel make shore all DRL fuse are in place. If is not wired then you need air pressure switch that goes on the brake release hose. Cut the yellow hos insert a t bras and the switch aprox 20 inches from the valve. for easy access remove the switch bar and the panel.then wire from head lights to switch air switch fuses. you may need a conversion plug for DRL module 8 pin. i don't have a diagram but wen you have all the necessary parts its the same like a small car wiring diagram DRL module from walmart.

What does an oil switch on a car do?

Some small engines are equipped with an oil switch that shuts the engine down if the oil pressure drops below a set amount. Some automobiles may have the same type switch. There is also an oil pressure sending unit that measures the oil pressure and sends this information to a gauge or to a red oil pressure light.

Why does my oil pressure gauge read low?

You will need to remove your oil pressure sending unit and install a mechanical gauge to get a true reading. You need to start out cold and write down the pressure reading and also once it warms up to operating temperature. If the pressure gauge is not the same as the mechanical one you have a bad pressure switch.

Why oil pressure warning light in 1997 Dodge Stratus turn on only when the car is at full stop and engine has running for 20 minutes and dip stick indicates oil is full?

May be the oil sending unit in the oil pan. 97? it could be external. Yes, it is the oil pressure sending unit. Easy and inexpensive part to get fixed. I had the same problem on my '97 Stratus with the 2.5l V-6. I replaced the oil pressure switch ($16 from NAPA), cleaned up the connector to the switch and the problem was solved. The switch is located just above the oil filter and you'll have to remove the filter to get to it. On a 4 cylinder it is on the rear of the block, to the left of center.

Is an oil sensor and an oil pressure sending unit the same thing?

What do you do if you turn the key and the oil pressure warning light doesnt light up?

First step, confirm you have oil pressure with a Gauge (you can skip this step if you are 100% sure you have pressure). If you have oil pressure, Check the Sending Unit. (Somewhere on the engine, 2 wires going to it probably the same place you stuck the gauge) Check the sending unit by checking for continuity (Ohm) using a Multimeter. If you start the engine and the Resistance stays the same (OL or out of limits, no continuity) you have a bad sending unit, if the sending unit tests good (Low resistance), the light may be burnt out.

Where is the oil pressure switch on a 92 dodge v6?

The Oil pressure sending unit for a V6 Dodge, is located on the front of the engine. It is located just to the right of the filter as you are looking at the van & just above the starter and is not easy to work on with the Starter in place. See link for a picture that shows the location on a 94 which is the same as a 92.
