The oil switch is located on the passenger side of the truck in the back of the engine. Look for the transmission dipstick, then feel for it between the transmission dipstick and the engine block. It is hidden pretty well, but a socket wrench will fit to take it off. The new part uses a 1-1/16 socket, the old part for some reason was smaller, I think 13/16 inch. Hope that helps.

Is there a oil safety switch on your 2001 jeep grand Cherokee?

My Grand Cherokee is a 2000 4.0L and 6 cylinder. The engine has a oil pressure sensor or oil pressure switch which sends a signal to the car computer, if by any reason the oil pressure dropped to the unsafe level then the alarm will warn you to check and solve the problem, this is not a safety switch to shut your engine, you need to stop and turn the engine off ASAP and check the oil level. This is a common problem with the switch itself on this models and other models with similar engine. By the way, oil safety switch or oil pressure sensor or pressure sensor switch is a very important device on any car I never saw an engine without it.
