    Hi,

    No that is not normal operating procedure. If your car is doing this, then it probably has the same issue as mine and the original poster in that thread. The oil level sensor is bad. The red light should still come on if you have a problem (no oil pressure, etc).

    All it should do when you turn the car on is have the red oil light come on for a few seconds and go out. It shouldn't light up again while driving (regardless of color).

    There should be a thread/DIY on how to change the sensor. I have a good while left on my current oil change, so I'm not worried about it and will fix next time I have to drain the oil.
