Low Oil Sensor issues

I recently had my low oil light turn on after starting my car. As I had suspected when I saw the light go on, my oil level was just fine (covering the second hole into the hatchmarked area). I do have a slight seepage leak coming from the side of the oil pan but nothing else. The car was not parked on an incline so that wasn't the issue.

I want to know where in the oil pan the sensor is located, how it operates, and if anyone else has had intermitent problems with low oil lights going on. I was unable to find anything relevant by searching so if anyone does know of a good thread please let me know.

I apologize Jon, for telling you that I had a similar situation and everything ended up turning out fine. Appearantly, I am not allowed to inform you of my situation according to the administrators.

Why would you post, if you have no idea??? You better start to curb the post whoring...


Anyways

Read the manual, unfortunately I can't get the image.. but the oil pan replacement section just says "disconnect the sensor" so I assume its the one hangin off near the bottom of the pan.
