    P0524 OIL PRESSURE TOO LOW

    When Monitored and Set Condition:

    When Monitored: While the engine is running.
    Set Condition: The oil pressure detected by the ECM is less than a calibrated value.

    POSSIBLE CAUSES

    • LOW OIL LEVEL
    • (G60) SIGNAL CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
    • OIL PRESSURE SWITCH
    • INTERNAL ENGINE DAMAGE

    DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE

    1. Check the engine oil level. Is the engine oil in the safe operating range?
      Yes --> Go To 2
      No --> Repair any condition that may cause the oil level to be above or below the safe operating range.
    2. With the DRBIII®, erase DTCs. Turn the ignition off. Disconnect the oil pressure switch harness connector. Turn the ignition on for 1 minute. Did DTC P0521 set?
      Yes --> Go To 3
      No --> Repair the (G60) signal circuit shorted to ground.
    3. Measure the engine oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. Is the oil pressure within the acceptable operating range?
      Yes --> Replace the oil pressure switch.
      No --> Repair internal engine damage.
