The indicator light is not switched off if the engine speed exceeds 5000 rpm, not even if the oil pressure switch is closed. The indicator light will be shut off again when the engine speed drops below 5000 rpm.
If the oil pressure switch is only opened for 0.5-3.0 seconds when the engine speed is over 1500 rpm, this fact will be stored in the instrument cluster processor.

The warning will be cleared when the oil pressure switch is closed for more than 5 seconds and the ignition is turned off.
