I have an '06 elise. My oil light in the cluster flashes whenever I hit 4k rpm, even while reving on idle. I have a oil pressure gauge and the pressure shows normal (roughly around 80psi when the light turns on). At WOT, it comes on occasionally, but not all the time when it passes 4k.

Is there anything I need to be worried about? The car sounds and drives fine.

are you sure it's not your brake light? which may happen when you are low on brake fluid

Just my 2 cents. I have an 05 Elise with only 9K but the fact is they are getting old. Time takes its toll on wiring, connectors and everything else. 4k rpm sort of tells me its a vibration issue and it will come on at that harmonic. Check the connector at the oil pressure switch and then go from there. KISS, keep it simple stupid.
