We have noticed an increase in oil pressure switch-related problems with late-model Honda vehicles recently. After verifying the wiring and connectors are in good condition, replace the oil pressure switch. They were aware of this issue and if I replaced the part I would receive a software update and would no longer have issues.

Luckily I knew it just needed oil so I added a quart. He checked and said it had no oil. Turn the steering wheel fully to the right and then shut off the engine. Knowing this wasn't the first time the car ran out of oil. By the way, they also told me like everyone else with the issue that Honda says it is normal to loose a quart of oil every 1000 miles and I should change my oil every 3000 miles. Two switches that seem to be consistently problematic are the rocker arm oil pressure switch and the engine oil pressure switch.
The mechanic told me to keep an eye on this problem. It felt like I had a fouled plug. Install a new O-ring, then install the switch and torque it to 13 ft.

I had them do a full synthetic oil change and then I immediately drove to my Honda Dealer. They assured my the rocker arm option would fix my issue.

Right now I am at 25% oil life remaining on the indicator.
