      Part was easy to change out on my 1998 Jeep Cherokee and it restored the function on my oil pressure gauge in the dash, but only after a year or so of weekend only driving the new part quit.

              This item was purchased for a 1998 Jeep Cherokee.

              After installing the BWD switch the oil gauge on the dash would go to 80 and would not move until truck was turned off. This unit never functioned properly.

              I ended up replacing this item with a "MasterPro Ignition Oil Pressure Switch - Part # 2-8199" from a competitor. The MasterPro Ignition 2-8199 worked without problem.

                Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Oil Pressure Gauge Switch:

                The oil pressure switch that was in my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT was leaking and caused my oil pressure to plummet when the truck came to a stop.

                Replacing the oil pressure switch took about 15 minutes. My truck has it positioned that once the truck is on ramps or jack stands, you can actually sit straight up underneath it just behind the radiator.

                Installation was as simple as loosening the old one with a ratchet and threading the new one in with a ratchet.

                It's been installed a week now and I've had no problems!

                Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Oil Pressure Gauge Switch:

                I purchased this part the first time and it workd fine for about a month. Then my oil pressure gauge started to mess up again. So I took it back and the workers warrantied it out. The 2nd one work again for about 1 month. So I took it back and again they warranty it. The 3rd one worked for about 6 months this time. Then it messed up again. I tried to take it back but they said I already warrantied it. I understand the warranty. I am thinking the truck my be picky with sensors. I may try a OEM one next time or a different brand. It just seems kind of odd that I have went through 3 with the same issue. The part works fine when it is actually working but it fails fast in my opinion.

                  Purchased the sensor online and picked it up as soon as the store opened that morning. The socket that AA lists to install the sensor does NOT fit. It's not deep enough for the sensor to fit into (I borrowed a friend's since a wrench will not fit into the space provided.)

                  I installed the part and when checking that the sensor is secure, the entire plastic top of the sensor pulled off. Returned it to the store, obtained another sensor and that one has been working fine so far. The tabs inside the plastic housing were not broken, they simply didn't grasp onto the metal part of the sensor tightly enough. The new one seems, and operates okay.

                    Product worked great but was a pain to get to. On my '99 Durango it's located on the very back side of the engine, so I had to climb up in there to get at it. One thing you'll need to make sure you have is a deep well socket that's 1 1/16" or some channel locks if you can get them in there. And be careful not to break the plastic of tightening it in there.

                        I replaced this on my 2000 Dakota with V6. It is mounted on the top rear of the engine behind the air intake apparatus. Its kind of hard to get to. Getting the wire connector off was a challenge. It was difficult to unscrew because of its placement and because there is a lot of plastic beyond the "nut" part.

                        I changed this on my 2000 Dakota with V6. It is in the top rear of the engine. I found this pretty difficult due to the horrible location of the sensor. I had to crawl on top of the engine. It was really cold too.

                        1) Remove the air intake apparatus.

                        2) Disconnect the sensor wires by pushing the red plastic all the way in; push connector together while squeezing end of connector then pull apart. I found this difficult.

                        3) Remove sensor. Use a 1-1/16 inch deep socket, swivel attachment and extension.

                        A bad oil pressure sensor caused the oil gauge to fluctuate from zero to normal in my 2000 Dakota for several days. Eventually the gauge stayed at zero.

                      • A:

                        It will not only run rough, but it will cause the engine to shut down. Since the part is not monitored by the on board computer, the OBD will not show a code. The part is wired directly to the dashboard gauge, and then to the automatic shut down relay. In my case, the sender would function normally on start up. Oil Pressure is normal. Drive a few miles, and the gauge will peg to zero and the engine shuts down. At that point, if it starts again, it will not stay running. However, the next day, you can play the game all over again.

                        To replace the sender on the V6, you have to remove the air filter assembly and lay on top of the engine. On your left of center on the top of the block, just above the bell housing for the transmission is the sender. To disconnect the part, you have to remove the key by forcing it down on the one end, and then out the opposite side. Then press the top tab and pull up. Unscrew the sender and replace in reverse order. Make sure the battery is disconnected.

                        It can definitely cause the gauge to fluctuate. On some cars I would also expect low or no oil pressure to cause the engine's computer to shut things down as a safety measure.
