Fired up car this morning....Oil Light Flickering & Temp Gauge Back Light Doing Same

Hi Guys,

Bit strange, this morning after starting the car, the oil light started flickering & the temp gauge back light was doing the same.

This seemed to slow down further car drove. Its only a short journey to work so it was just upto temp by the time I got to work. (don't usually use the car for work as I have a push bike but had something big I needed to take)

I gave it a blip at work & can't see any oil smoke, water is Ok, oil a little low.

Maybe & oil top up and see if it stops?

Car is a Std 1300 S1 Rallye BTW.

A quick web search showed it's an issue that crops up every now & again but nothing on how to fix!

Any Ideas?

loose connection on the oil temp sender, or possibly the instruments if the backlight is also flickering
