Question 97 mxz oil light on

I picked up my 97 670 yesterday. It seemed to fire right up at the guys house that I bought it from, and everything seemed to be in good condition. (10 yr. old sled keep in mind) so I went through w/ the sale. Well I got it home today and fired it up and I noticed the oil light stayed on for probably about 5 to 10 seconds, and then turned off, but then within probably 10 seconds came back on, so I shut it off. There's oil in the resevor and the lines seem to be o.k. Any help, ideas or info. Thanks

Call the guy up & ask him WTF is going on!! Either he will tell you what he knows to help you or he may just lie to you.
SEG may have some tips for you to look for....sending unit, wiring, etc. Shouldn't be to hard to figger out!!

That light strictly lets you know when the tank is empty, so no worry if you have oil in it. Check the plug for the sending unit on the top of the tank. If that's Ok, replace the sending unit.

Yeah, I figured it out. If you push in the brakes even half way the (P) light comes on. I got flustered for nothing. Opps!!

Dude, you will love that sled, I had mine now for 3 years. Same one, but with some custom painting. Dont forget to clean the secondary clutch out from the belt dust, important. 670 like to rip up belts, just too much damn power.

NEVER AGAIN!!!! long track for that kind of **** or nothing...got 4500 on it now runs like it was new still

I have the same problem with a 2002 SkiDoo GT500 fan. Oil resevoir is full but the light remains on....will flicker when I apply the brakes.

Should I be concerned....where is the sending unit? Have looked to see if there was a loose wire connection but cannot find any.

Comments?....and thanks
