Hyundai Santa Fe Oil Light flickering

Why is the Oil Light flickering on my Hyundai Sante Fe

Shops are reporting Hyundai Santa Fe Oil Light flickering problems on 2003-04 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.5L engines. The oil light stays on or flickers. Obviously, your first check should be oil level. But if that’s fine, locate the oil pressure sending unit near the oil filter. Then follow the wire up towards the alternator belt. This wire can rub against the engine and short to ground. If you find any rubbed through insulation, repair it and recheck the oil light. If you find no problem, then remove the oil pressure sending unit and install a mechanical gauge. If oil pressure is correct, replace the sending unit
