I think you got a serious problem that the oil pressure is not enough. Either the oil is not suitable or you got a oil pump issue. Try changing the oil to the recommended oil.

It could be due to oil viscosity. What brand of oil have you used? 5w-40 is generally synthetic and should be ok for a diesel. Add only recommended grades and do not experiment with oils.

If the oil light stays on till 3200 RPM which is near the high end of the RPM range for a diesel you run the chance of severe engine damage. DO NOT drive the car till it is checked thoroughly.

Causes in decreasing order of probability:

a) Oil pressure sensor fault or a electrical wiring fault in the dashboard
b) Oil viscosity
c) Oil pump (this is serious)

As mentioned above it can be a problem with the sensor or the pump, get it checked ASAP. Stick to diesel engine oils, these engines are very sensitive and wrong oil can deliver big repair bills.

hi nurry did you get your car serviced(washed) when you put in this new oil. If so it just might be that the oil pressure sensor might have got messed up because of the washing. The same thing happened to me last week when i got my Xylo serviced. Mahindra changed the oil pressure sensor free of cost.

Whatever the reason, dont keep driving the car. Might be a sensor fault or a Fuel Pump fault. I dont think Engine oil viscosity is the issue here at at all.

Get it checked asap.

Glad to hear this, but do give the thought of a proper diesel engine oil for your car also.
