My 1995 buick regal (3.8) has developed a problem when started.The oil level monitoring warning light stays on after the engine is running. I can shut off the motor and do a restart and the light will stay off,but every time the vehicle sits for any period of time with the motor off I go thru the same process again (light on at start up/turn off and restart and the light stays off)The oil level is up to par and the filter is clean and new. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! Faulty oil pressure switch would be my guess, same thing with my Previa. Replace the cheap switch and see if it is a more expensive problem.

The brake warning light comes on in your dash if the emergency brake is on or the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW

If you mean the warning light just to the left of your engine temperature gauge that means that the engine coolant level in the coolant reservoir is low

Put some oil in the engine. This warning light means your oil level is low.

check the brake fluid level in your master cylinder under the hood. The light comes on for two reasons, either the hand brake is on or your brake fluid level is low
