The oil pressure low light is out on my 95 impreza. It does not light at any time.

Is this a dealer repair or an easy fix?

thanks

Should just be replacing the light bulb. However getting the bulb out means removing the dash.

Anyone know if there is anyway the sender could be stuck "on"?

Where is the sender located?

Not stuck on, more likely it's disconnected. The Oil light should come on before starting the engine, along with all the other dash lights. If it doesn't either the bulb is blown or the wire to the sensor is disconnected.

Sensor looks like a spark plug screwed straight into the engine block. Not sure where it is on your engine.

Dash removal is quite easy. Two "hidden" screws inside the dash cowl, above the dials. Then pull toward you on the base of the cowl. Don't break it, but you might be surprised by how hard you have to pull.

Undo the screws securing the dash binnacle (not the ones holding the perspex on the binnacle) and unhook the wires behind it. Mine has three, but it's a 1999 model. Your's may have two wire sockets and a speedo cable.

Presto! After a bit of juggling the thing will come out past the steering wheel.
