Engine code p0520

Key dance shows p0520 engine oil pressure sensor. Light came on while driving today. Does this just mean I need a new sensor or something else? And if so does anyone know the part number or where I can get one?

From what I see what the code says,I would check your wiring for a short or bad wire,here is what code PO520 says:

Oil pressure Sensor signal circuit is open or shorted to ground
Oil pressure Sensor signal circuit has high resistance
5v supply circuit has high resistance
5v supply circuit is shorted to ground
Oil pressure Sensor ground circuit has high resistance

Looks like you need an oil pressure switch. Here's a thread from 300Cforums

So to revive an old thread.


Was the oil pressure sensor the fix to the code?
