Re: No pressure??
May not be any help.... but!
My auxillary belt snapped the other day, and on the lanes I could not stop (it turned out to be a siezed pully on the tensioner, currently a new one is on the way fro Italy!), but as the power went I lost one system after another, but it kept sparking until all the needles rested on the stay, so hopefully it is an electrical fault, earth or something?
The sensors are supposed to be quite delecate, if the red light works then you should be ok? Mine is a 1990 so I am used to electrical things stopping working, and then fixing themselves, I thought the newer ones were a lot better. If they are in the sump like the V6 then the book time is half an hour less to get at them than to take the engine out, about 7 hours (my sump was killed by a faulty speed hump so I had to get it taken off and fixed, the mechanic warned that the oil sensor might not work again, but it did).
I am sure you will get told not to drive it like that, but on a budget you sometimes have to take a chance.
