Default Hmm. mysterious breakage

just noticed this. i wonder if it hurts my vtec :O heres the situation. so i just noticed today that when i went to start my car the oil pressure light didnt come on :O so i put the car in the air and check out the sender unit.. its shot.. somehow it broke from the plug and the wire was hanging

so it dont bother me much ill just buy another.. but one thing i cant tell is.. since im FI i cant hear the vtec cross cuz by then my wastegate it open or it sounds like a goddamn jet taking off under my hood. so. since my map is setup for vtec. and if its not engaging would that affect much.. only thing i can see is itll cause it to actually be richer in the a/f.. but the REAL Q i want to know is.. would my vtyec even still cross w/o this hooked up? the sensor im referring to is the one on the back of the block that will causde your dash light to go on indicating low oil psi

doesnt the vtec pressure switch check for oil and decideds whether vtec should engage or not? i didnt think it had anything to do with the dummy light

the pressure sensor only comes on when it does not read pressure, thats what im told, the vtec solenoid and "pressure" switch would check on their own. i hooked up a light to my vtec wire to see when it comes on

BTW, did you have any problem locating a replacement sending unit? The only place where I could get one the same day was CarQuest.

Bump to get this man some answers!

it reads the oil pressure from the switch and then opens the valve to lock the pins, so thusly without it hooked up the switch always assumes there is no oil pressure.

I cant remember if the oil pressure switch was a normally open or normally closed contact, but as long as your oil light doesnt come on, your fine. ECU and oil light uses the same signal.

Doesnt mean you shouldnt fix it, though.
