Low Oil Pressure – Chrysler

Why is my Low Oil Pressure light on

If your oil light is on or your gauge shows low oil pressure, read this post

Chrysler has issued a TSB #18-003-08 to address a problem with low oil pressure and a code P0524 Engine Oil Pressure Too Low. This problem occurs on the V-8 5.7 L engine. Before you start
replacing parts, check the actual oil pressure by removing the oil sending unit and attaching a gauge. Chances are the oil pressure will test just fine. If it does, you need to have a software update installed. Evidently, there’s a glitch in the factory software that causes a false code.
