    Hello to all!
    I want to ask It's about Honda CR-V 2.2 I-DTEC 2010
    It is normally when I give the key on position( II )-contact ,alert for engine oil does not work on dashboard?
    The board is tested and the light works but when I give on contact is not working.
    Is this normal and if not what could be the problem?
    Thanks!

    That's an odd one @sredez403.

    I would say get the car connected to HDS and check what the readings are saying, that should help determine and sensor issues, take it from there.

    Oh and also please do drop by to our "Introduce Yourself" section and say a few words about yourself and your car.

    Did you check actual sensor values using a HDS or just read for errors using a generic OBD reader ?

    Do you mean that if the engine oil is low that the light isn't coming on like it's meant to? I agree that the easiest way to check if the sensors are doing their jobs is to hook-up to HDS and check the readouts.

    And if disconnect the sensor should light up, right?
    I think that is the simplest test which will show that the sensor is working or not.
    As long as I find where is this sensor.

    Well it will likely be an oil pressure sensor which isn't easy to get to, no, there's no way to know if disconnecting the sensor would light up the dash or not without attempting it.

    What's brought about trying to diagnose this, what brought you to the conclusion that it doesn't work?

    I just noticed that when I put the key on position( II )-contact ,alert for engine oil does not work on dashboard.
    But until now where I have seen in pictures and videos is working.
    Before that I had not give consideration because it is rarely drive this car.
    How do I know exactly where is located this sensor?
    Is there any program that I can see exactly where is this sensor?
