Generation 1 Oil Pressure Warning Light
« on: May 21, 2020, 09:21:35 PM »
Hi everyone

I have a Generation 1 2013 model with just under 9k on the clock. The battery went flat after I left the parking lights on for a few days of not using the bike - my own fault.

Ive plugged the bike in to my trickle charger and its working fine however now the oil pressure warning light has illuminated. Ive checked the book and it says the screen should display 'oil pressure' however it doesn't. It just reads as normal (trip computer shown currently). Ive checked the oil level and it is half way in the sight glass.


Any idea's??


Thanks
Matt

I would disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, wait a while, and then reconnect it to reset. Then start-up and shut down three times to clear any error codes from the battery being disconnected.

It's very unlikely to be low oil pressure. Either a dodgy pressure switch, or it just needs a reset as Captaintrips says

Thanks for your replies guys,


to do the reset do I have to start it and let it run until the fan kicks in and then shut it down ?

Ive re-started it and switched it off straight away three times to no avail?

Thanks

Yes, I seem to recall that you have to ride it a bit.

I also recall, that there have been a couple of people who have had the oil pressure sensor fail and had to replace it. I don't remember what the specific symptoms were, though.

Not sure that is the issue specifically for the OP but the 12 minute tune is detailed on our own forum too, see

I can't see any notes in the owner or service manuals to this effect. Can you post some details on where it says that?
Scrub that, I was looking at the wrong manuals! I don't think the 'oil Lo' message on the dash ever got implemented. Triumph removed the oil level switches before the bikes went on sale to the public, as I recall.

Also, there's no DTC (error code) associated with the oil pressure switch so no point looking for one or trying multiple engine heat cycles to clear it. If the light stays on then either your oil pressure is genuinely low or, more likely, the switch is faulty.

If that is the case, then the failure of the oil pressure switch would be coincidental, and possibly unrelated to, the dead battery issue.
