don't see how it can be faulty wiring if the light goes out when the engine speed is increased. I would double check the wiring connector isn't corroded and if not get the oil pressure tested.

ok m8ty sure will thx for the responce....

Hi,

Was the engine oil light lit on idle when you first bought/had the car or since the oil change?

Does the oil light come on when the engines at idle when the engines started from cold or does the oil light only come on when the engines warm?

You say the oils been charged,i take the oil filter was replaced at the same time?

What engine oil grade was used when the oil was changed?

The problem oil light could be anything from,

the wrong oil (to thin)..

like Colin says a faulty connector or faulty oil pressure sensor...

the oil filter not changed just the oil....

worn oil pump.

etc etc.

Chips.

As Colin says go for the genuine oil filter.

The price of a oil filter will be around £10 to £15 at the most,could be cheaper than £10 :unsure:

As to only changing the oil and not the oil filter as well,that could be the problem.The oil filter could of been on there for ages,alot of garages are abit naughty and just wipe the outside of the oil filter clean..so it looks like its been replaced ;) The oil filter if dirty will reduce the oil pressure around the engine and cause the oil light to come on.

If the oil you replaced in the engine is the wrong type eg..to thin that will make the oil light come on also as it wont be building enough pressure.

When you start the engine from cold thats why the oil light stays off to start with because the oil will be slightly thicker then thins when the engines warm.

Change the oil filter before you do anything else and see if that sorts the oil warning light out.If that dont fix the problem and the right oil is in the engine then think about having the oil pressure checked.Any good garage(dont have to be a lexus dealer)should be able to check the oil pressure..

Hope thats of some help for now.

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
