They don't list a 2.4L for that car on repair information they list three different 2.3L engine's. What is the 8th digit of your vin that tell me what engine you have.

I posted a wire diagram for the level switch the way it work's is when the oil level is good it sends a ground signal to the light when it's low it looses that ground signal. What your going to have to do is when the light is on see if the black wire going to the low oil level switch has a good ground and if the brown and white wire has a good ground as well. Let me know what you find.
