Oil pressure switches

Lost an oil cooler hose the other day & before I could get safely off the road the engine stopped. Is one of the 2 oil pressure switches used to cut the ecu and shut the engine? Can't find anything in svc mans or elec cartoons.

unfortunatly, no. The switch on the sandwitch plate runs the oil light on the dash only. It will let you run with no oil pressure until the engine seizes up...

Dude that sucks but you motor is probably toast. Definatly have it towed to a dealer as it may becovered due to the oil line recall.

The one on the head is for the variable lift system.
