Oil pressure switch question
Hey gang! Here's post #1:
Here's something that's been bugging me.
On the passenger side of my motor there's a T in the block with the oil pressure sending unit (for the dash gauge) and what looks like a pressure switch for an idiot light.
Here's the puzzling part: I don't ever recall seeing and oil pressure idiot light on my dash. To top it off, my local Jeep dealer found a need to run a hot lead from the fuse block to one side of this switch (bypassing the factory harness). I checked the cut wire and it had 12vdc. Why it was bypassed is another mystery.
Anyway, what is this switch for? If it is for an idiot light, perhaps it should be pointing to the one behind the steering wheel!
