    Dont know if this is correct place but after buying a 2007 Citreon relay 2.2 with 114k miles on it .Problem is the oil light stays on for about 30 secs after starting up each time.Van goes OK and checked oil level.Also two warning lights stay on "bulb" which I think means a bulb is blown and a "red box outline " tried to see if doors are not closed but cant think of anything else? Anyone any ideas?

    First thing could be a faulty oil pressure sender unit. Not a big deal. As they get older, they can let oil up into the switch section. You would CERTAINLY know within ten seconds if you had no oil pressure.........
    Second point. Not the step warning light??? :Smile:

    Thanks for prompt reply (was going to buy it next week) was told it was because it needs resetting after service,but will give it a oil change+ sender unit .What was the step you mentioned ?

    Has your MH got a fold out step, either electric or manual?? If so, there is usually either a warning light on the dash, or a beeper, to tell you its not been retracted. They work on a micro switch, which can go faulty, and show a light.
