Can some one out there explain to me how the oil pressure switches work on
the 5 cylinder motors? I am specifically talking about a 1984 4ksq but I
imagine it is the same throughout the board. I have deducted that the 1.8
bar switch operates the light at ignition on but the motor not running. So
what does the other switch do? It has a range of numbers like .03 bar to
4.3 bar or something to that effect. I am adding a set of gauges to the car
and don't really care about the idiot light. I am installing a oil pressure
gauge and a temp gauge. So, will it hurt to remove both the switches?
Currently I have taken out the 1.8 bar switch.
Any help and info on this will be appreciate.
