changing the subject
So what triggers the red oil light if there is no oil pressure sensor?

On the realoem diagram, I see that #12 is an oil pressure switch, #13 is oil temp.

(EDIT: Ok, you are right TobyB. There is no actual sensor giving pressure readings, only a switch to turn red oil light on or off.)
