No...but a corroded main ground connection to an OLD battery can...1994 running with an eleven year old battery...wirebrush the main ground connecton to the battery and to the engine block...if still suffering from an undervoltage condition would suggest that an ignition relay hasn't the voltage to hold the contacts closed~....that's kinda a neat idea that oil pressure could shut things down~....but not gonna happen that way~
