    Phantom Oil Light

    About 1 of 10 times I start my jeep, my oil light turns on and stays on. I immediately stop, and turn the engine off. Then I restart the engine and the oil light doesn't come on at all. Bad sensor? Important to have checked out? There's plenty of oil, I have checked numerous times.

    I was launching jet skis from a trailer and the back of the jeep probably went a little too far into the water. The trailer light connection got wet but it has a rubber sheath around it. The water may have been high enough where a good portion of the bumper was in the water. When I was...
