How serious is the P000A code? Turn the ignition Off or reinstall the jumper cable to end the procedure. Start the engine and let it idle. Once the fault is corrected, the permanent fault memory should be erased as described below. The other thing to do is install the latest rings, which seem to help with sealing better.

But the funny thing was, the engine was silent and smooth, no noises at all! Because of this I do my oil changes every 5K miles instead of the recommended 10k and check my oil level twice between oil changes. I'm not sure however that a machined out 10mm bolt could flow enough oil to relieve excess oil pressure under all temperatures. Electronics tend to either work or not work. Possible wiring faults should be checked and corrected before replacing a suspected component. This includes the required drill bit, tap, and a crafty template for drilling a required hole. If I shifted into Sport mode the lamp would go away until rpm dropped again.

Hi guys, I keep getting this code pop up, I did have low oil pressure light as well. As a certified Mechanical Engineer, I am toying with trying to manufacture a 10mm bolt with an integral spring loaded ball oil pressure relief valve in the bolt that would vent such over pressure out of the center of the bolt when pressure exceeds 90 psi. I was going to replace it just for kicks, but its not exactly cheap. I assumed you had it as you were able to read fault codes, or is a generic scanner you have?
