2.7l low oil pressure light TSB 083699

I am wondering if any one can confirm for me the following: I got a copy of TSB 083699 regarding the problem with the low oil pressure warning light coming on in the 99 and newer 2.7l equipped intrepids. I have been having this problem with my car. I had a motor in the car that just recently poped a head gasket at 198,000km. The car since I had it (bought at 194,000kms) has had a problem where the oil pressure light flickers at 600 to 500 rpm when the motor has built up some heat. When the old motor let go, I got my hands on a newer motor out of a 2001 that had only 55,000km on it, but it has the same problem where the light flickers at 500 to 600 rpm again with heat in the motor. I replaced the oil pressure switch with a blue streak aftermarket switch and am still having same problem.

Anyway all that said I have now purchased the terminal/wire vent #05017800A that the TSB refers to. From what I have read does this wire get installed to simply act as a heat sync? It does not appear to connect to anything since the pressure switch only has a single wire connection and this goes onto a blank terminal spot.

Has anyone put this on their vehicle and does it really work?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Where did you buy the terminal/wire vent at? And how much?

I purchased it at a local Chrysler Dealer, they had to order it in. Cost me $26.00 Canadian.

How much is $26 canadian in US dollars? Also what was included? Just a single wire with a terminal crimped on it?

To figure out US equivalent divide by 1.37 should get you close. Yes it was just a single wire in a prtective loom with a wire crimped on one end and the other end of the loom taped shut.

Since I am an electrican on aircraft I have access to tons of all different gauges (sizes) of wires and terminals. Hell, all I need is a pic of this , and I can make my own.

Is there any one that has had experience with this? Is this add on wire just a heat sync or does it actually connect to something? Need Help figuring this out.

The service manager at my local 5-Star told me that it's really nothing more than a simple resistor.

I have the vent wire on mine,and no more flicker.

Just thought that I would let everybody know that I performed the installation of the vent wire as per the TSB and it appears to have worked ... no more light flicker!

My 54K 2.7L just started to flicker the oil light. Only when warm and stopped at a light. My warm idle is 500RPM. If I take off or pop into Neutral, the light goes out. BTW-My Neutral idle is 700RPM.

Mobil 1 since 48K. Changed again this past weekend. Not a drop of any fluids under car. No oil in coolant / coolant in oil [I hope]

Do the TSB? I know the part is cheap. How hard is the replace???

As I said in a previous post, I did the TSB, and found ite very easy to do. Here I am 1000km later and still no more oil light flicker. The TSB works. My warm low idle is also 500rpm in gear and 700rpm im park.
