    Oil Pressure High.. Even when engine not running . Sensor?

    Turned out to be oil pressure sensor. Cold start idle is sitting on 300 kPa. When warm it sits on 200 kPa. Is this normal? I cant remember what it use to sit on, i thought it sat on 300 kPa but cannot remmeber now.

    If you are upgrading to the one in the 2nd picture, pretty sure you need to get the unit programmed to you VIN.

    VE HSV indicator flashing fast

    If all LEDS are good, then its likely the module. I would try the wiring harness fix first, Its the cheap option. Im not sure if anyone in NZ sell them though, last time I went to Holden about it, they had nothing, and that was years ago. You would have to buy them from EBay. If you are happy...

    Oil Pressure High.. Even when engine not running . Sensor?

    Thanks was wondering about this. Unplugged it and 0 kPa reading. The price @ Holden NZ, Genuine = close to $280! Aftermarket = $150. Genuine Import from AUS = $99. Bloody Hell Holden is a rip off here in NZ.

    Oil Pressure High.. Even when engine not running . Sensor?

    HSV LS3. No Engine Light. 5W/30 Nulon. Had Ryco Filter last few months, but swapped out for AC-Delco yesterday to see if that was the issue. Out of nowhere, my oil pressure on the HSV gauge & DashCommand, has been showing 600 kPa at idle rising to 800 + kPa (Normally sat on 300 kPa). If the...

    Aircon Leak inside Cabin?

    Took my car into the shop the other day as I have lived without Aircon for couple years now. After the check, they came back to me saying there are no leaks at all in the engine bay, it must be inside the cabin. They quoted me a significant number to do this job as they say the dash needs to...

    Ssv headunits

    TBH if you going to upgrade you are better off upgrading to Series II or Aftermarket. Series 1 SSV headunit is below average these days. Doesnt even have bluetooth audio and weak output power

    Headlight swap

    if you have a series 2 Omega then they wont fit flush if it's a series 1 headlight. 99% certain will be straight swap with the loom side. I have a set of HSV headlights (They the same headlight as SSV / CalaisV) at the moment on my desk I can try get some photos if need

    Is it Worth upgrading exhaust??

    If you change to 3" alone doubt you will feel any gain. Re-Tune after may give a small gain. it will be the sound difference you have to ask yourself what you would prefer. 3" may drone more then 2.5"

I got a Check Engine Light / limp mode about 3 weeks ago, got all the usual lights that turn off. ABS / ESP etc. Took it to my mechanic and he read / wiped the codes. There was a dealer code he...

    What ceramic pads did you go with? I have a new set of DBA 4000 T3s and still deciding which pad to go with. The Brake Dust on the stock pads were horrible. So been thinking about going Ceramic.

    VE Stereo upgrade problem.

    Thanks alot mate. A lil worried about chopping the stock amp wiring at this time lol. But damn why did they have to be different. I might try find a plug that might plug into the stock amp loom and see if I can go that way. But thanks again will give the loom a go.

    VE Stereo upgrade problem.

    Hey mate. Did you have any update on this? How did things go? What did you end up doing. I currently have a Sub hooked up using a Amp / LOC connected to the Rear Sub Speakers which run off the stock HSV amp. Was thinking of using the same harness you have here, and hooking up another amp for...

    Upgrading VE Stock Speakers - How To

    Curious did you do a before and after test? With the speakers and stock system, and then adding the Sony system? Am thinking about that Sony amp you quote, as I like the sound of plug n play. But I do have a amp I can use, do you know if the harness itself is for sale? Where I could just plug...

    Which throttle controller is best

    I can only speak of the stealth 2.0. The stealth 3 or 4 maybe be different. The stealth 2.0 gets power from the OBD2 port (Although they do sell a double obd2 port adapter) or you can hardwire it as it wouldnt be to hard, It only utilizes the power and ground. I read the Mace gets its power...

    Advice on possible upgrades for VE

    If you can afford it definitely go CAM. Otherwise OTR Headers + Tune is still good, and nearly half the price of a Cam job.
