Hi

I am noticing at idle my PSI gauge is indicating 14.5psi (air conditioning on)

Is this normal, should it be indicating 0 psi?

When accelerating it works fine, but for example stopping at a red light, it settles at 14.5psi

That display is odd, 4.5psi on that scale means it would max at 40psi, being as the oil pressure can be over 70psi cold the scale doesn't make sense. Yours being 14.5psi (1 Bar) hot idle is spot on, the key reading is 2 Bar (circa 30psi) at 2000rpm at 80 degrees C oil temp as a MINIMUM, 3 Bar is better.

That was a internet photo. So my is working normal at 14.5psi idle.
