Since a tech checked my dash with a GM reader via the below the dash plug to see if I needed the dash flashed (it falls into the vin number)- I have had a LOW OIL PRESSURE warning show up if my unit down shifts and goes above 4200rpm (using cruse controll). I called Workhorse and they said it was a known anomaly in the dash but there wasn't a fix.

I have monitored the pressure and it climbs untill the trans downshifts then the warning comes on. When the trans upshifts the warning goes away and the pressure is 30+psi.
It is kind of frightening but I havn't had any metal pieces come up from under the floorboard yet.
My question is - does anyone else out there have the same problem? Has it been fixed etc.?

Check the threads by BEBOP and myself about a page away. We've had a couple of Oil Pressure Alarms ourselves with no engine problems. I'm currently waiting to get mine fixed. I don't know if it's an Actia Dash problem or a sensor problem yet. Frankly I'm not sure if the shop really knows yet either. We'll wait and see.
Sometimes, because of this website, I think I know more than the dealer and the chassis shop, but I need to hold my tongue until they are either proven right or wrong. It can be frustrating, but I don't want to look like an idiot either. It's probably hard to tell a shop to, "well,....just go to this internet forum and".....
Good luck,
AKBrick
