Oil pressure control sensor

2013 wrangler sport. Check engine light came on and the code read engine oil pressure control sensor stuck/off. Auto parts store were no help of course. It will be a few days before I can get it to a shop and I still need to drive it. Does anyone know if this could damage the jeep if I keep driving it a few days?

No I'm not sure. I'm not very tech savvy. Wouldn't the oil light come on if it was oil pressure?

If the oil sensor is bunk the low oil pressure light won't come on either. Be on the safe side, Don't drive it till it's fixed .

I am assuming you are plagued with the oh so fun P06DD that I had in mine... There is a thread on this forum about it. Problem ranges from incorrect oil filter, to torn pick-up tube seal, to bad sensor, to bad pressure solenoid, and finally, like my case, a bad oil pump. From my experience (not saying its safe to drive or this is happening with yours) it is usually just a temporary status and turning the engine off and back on restores the Jeep from limp mode where it limits your RPM. When the issue arises again, it chimes and goes back into limp mode. To set the code, the oil just has to be below a specified pressure for a fraction of time after the engine speed passes 3500 RPM. if you never cross that thresh hold and the light still comes on, then I would be really worried.

If it were me, I would call the dealer, leave a message if possible and bring it in when possible so they are at least aware you are trying to be proactive.

Search "check engine light - low oil pressure" on this forum and you will see what I am talking about. I think someone from Jeep even posted if JeepCares is a representative, with a few pictures.

Thanks everyone. The check engine light is off now, but I'm still going to have it looked at.
