Oil light comes on, blinks and shuts car off

Asked by Feb 25, 2014 at 06:10 AM about the 2006 Chrysler 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Oil light came on, then started blinking and shuts off. I've already change both sensors,
and did a complete oil change. I'm thinking it's the oil pump. What do you think?

the oil light will not shut the car off, are you sure it is the oil light and not the skim key light, the skim light is a red light about the size of a ball point pen clicker.

This model car has fuel pump cut wired in to ecm incase of oil failure I would venture a guess that you do need a pump

Same exact issue I walked home and my car is 3.5 300 touring 145k mile oil icon and that red lighting bolt n I did see the red dot aswell


if you were filling the car up at the time while it was on it will make the engine stall. takeit to a Chrysler dealer and they will fix it for free because it was a recall on a bad gas tank

what was the problem ? Im having the same issue with my 06 300 156000 km
