Warning light issues on a 147

Howdy-asking on behalf of a friend.

He has a 04 147. Oil pressure warning light and number plate light and alarm are coming on far too frequently. Seems to happen when he has to brake or corner. Oil level is fine. Number plate light works ok.

I used to get the number plate light warning when I had a 147, but it was rare enough. Oil pressure warning light I have only seen once or twice in 3 years of Alfa ownership.

What could be causing the issues with the oil pressure light? Can anything be done about both issues?

Re: Warning light issues on a 147

with the No plate warning coming on, just change the bulbs and that will be ok, with oil light coming on thats harder, could be the wiring,the sensor,or the oil pump,for this you need to check oil pressure so take it to a dealer A.S.A.P BEFORE ENGINE GOES BANG

Good luck

Re: Warning light issues on a 147

My oil pressure warning has only ever come on once when i started it in first and stalled it - is this normal?
