The oil light comes on only when I put the brakes on, otherwise it is not on and when I had the oil checked the attendant said it was fine. I have a 1999 Ford Taurus sedan with 120,000 miles on it

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, if normal replace the oil pressure switch. If abnormal could mean oil pump and engine bearing.

Any weird engine noises occurring when stepping the brakes-Perhaps the brake circuit is shorted to the oil light circuit who knows-

Was this
