Oil Pressure Switch

February 13, 2015

.facebook_1422482899734The customer replaced the oil pressure switch on this unit..... however, they installed a hi pressure switch rather than an oil pressure switch. This is a huge mistake. The purpose of the oil pressure switch is to disable the unit if a low engine oil situation is present.... to prevent the engine from overheating and seizing. If the engine has no oil in it now, it will never shut down because of the incorrect switch installed. You can see they spliced the connector onto the new switch. The manufacturer of the unit specifically makes different connector styles to prevent an incorrect installation. In this industry, knowledge and experience are very important, and you can clearly see it was lacking in this situation.
