    Default Oil light and water level light on and off :S

    Hi, first post on the forum. and its a strange problem.

    My oil light came on a week ago, i pulled over and let it cool checked the oil level and it was just below the maximum line, i started the engine and it had gone off. i had no problems for the next few days then it came on again, turned the engine off and on and it went off and never came back on. it has now done it again, checked the oil again and still oil is at the same level.

    Now my water light has been doing exactly the same thing, started doing it within days of the oil light, but i can clearly see the water was not low when it comes on.

    ontill today they have never come on at the same time but now they have.

    I don't know whether this has anything to do with it it, but my power steering picks and chooses when it wants to work. (been doing it for past few months) but if you turn the engine off and on it will work, (not every time sometimes you have to do it a few times.)

    will this all be connected? seems strange to be doing it when the levels are right. thanks for the help.
