your gauge only measures volts. not amps. when alternators get tired sometimes they wont produce enough amps to run the car. your computer might see this where the gauge still says 12-14 volts. basicly your running off the battery. if that doesnt work then check battery for poor cell. last call put tape over the light,lol. good luck

What does the Oil Light on a Mercury Topaz mean the oil stick says its full?

Could be a faulty switch, or light. Or, it could mean that the oil pressure is low. Start by removing the oil switch at the engine, Install another gauge, best is a direct gauge that pumps the oil in a tube to the gauge. You can do this right in the engine compartment. If the pressure is low, then you will know that the oil pump is not working good, or there is blockage of sludge in the engine. If the pressure is good, say 40 lbs plus at fast idle, then most likely the switch has to be replaced.
