93 VIC in a 94 oil level light

Good morning everyone. I had to replace the Vic unit in my 94. I grabbed a 93 unit and now I have the annoying check oil level light. Does anyone know which wire it is to turn it off. I thought it was 26 and tried a few different resistors and nothing seemed to help. I just want the light gone. Any help is appreciated.

It's definitely pin 26:



My oil level sensor connector is broken, so when I specifically put the VIC into diagnostic mode it tells me that there's a problem with the sensor, but I don't get any warnings about it otherwise.

I don't know if it helps (probably not) but the FSM says that the oil level sensor uses a 0.75 milliamp circuit.

Here's the only other diagram from the FSM that might help you...

Thanks for the info. I'll have to check that out tomorrow and see what I can figure out.

How does the vic show the door open? I tried putting a 93 vic in my 94 and my 94 didn't like it and for the life of me I could not figure out how to show the door open

IIRC, the switches in the door frames ground when the door opens.

This is correct. depressing the switch (closing the door) completes the ground circuit. Unfortunately for mine, my issue is internal to the VIC as it always thinks my driver's door is ajar. Even tried grounding the pin in the connector to no avail. But I can live with it, as I like the service interval feature...

The solder joints on the circuit board go bad, if you open up your VIC and resolder them, it'll probably make the driver's door ajar message go away.
