Dash Warning Lights Aren't Just For Decoration

For the second time in two months we’ve had a customer need an engine because they ignored an oil light. This last one was towed in yesterday after a woman and her husband ignored a light for an entire month. They had driven a 100k+ miles vehicle for an extra 6k miles past the oil change time. They starved the engine of oil and toasted it. The irony here is we owed them a free oil change at my work.

They must have been going by this warning chart instead of the correct one.
