Oil sensor buzer/light will not shut off 96 cabiro VW
My oil sensor light will not shut off. I have replaced the oil sensor and it still buzzes. My auto guy said it may be the oil pump. Or it is an electrical problem. Also, my speep sensor is out. My dash instruments go off from time to time.
Re: oil sensor buzer/light will not shut off 96 cabiro...
I had the exact same problem with my '96 Cabrio, it was a cylinder that was stuck open slightly allowing oil to go from the engine to the pan that made the sensor think there was something much worse wrong with the engine. They were able to fix it. That noise the oil light makes is very loud.

I WOULD SAY THAT IF ITS A 1,4 ENGINE THE HEAD IS WORN IN THE CAMSHAFTS BEARING ,BUT IF THE SENSORS ARENT VW ORG THEN TRY ORG SENSORS , HAVE HAD VW THAT WILL NOT TAKE AN NON VW SENSOR FOR THE OILPRESSURE CHECKING .
Could be a few things, I assume you've checked the oil level. You could have a worn engine and therefore low oil pressure, could need a new oil pump. you can connect a mechanical oil guage to check whether it is a problem with your guage
the buzzing is most likely the speedo cable ive had a few older cars that do this you might try having someone oil the cable if they can or you can as for the oil light it might be low oil pressure or a bad oil level sensor or even a dirty plug on the sensor
You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.
has the dealer hooked up a mechanical test guage to see if the oil pressure is really low? If it is low make them fix it, low oil pressure will destroy the engine in a very short time. Low oil pressure is caused by either worn engine bearings or a defective oil pump.
This usually indicates that the oil pressure is low, but you need to get it checked out whether it's just a pressure sensor fault or connection issue, or it actually has got low oil pressure. The last one is the most concerning, because it could be causing internal damage if there is not enough oil pressure. Hopefully with a relatively late model car it will just be a sensor issue, but I would get it checked out ASAP, and preferably not use the car in the meantime.
Hope this helps,
Most probably an air pocket in ur coolant system, just let it run without the cap on the coolant bowl until no bubbles come out. As for ur oil light and buzzing, it's most probably the low oil level sensors tripping out, which is normal for a VW.
There are two oil sensors, one on the front of the engine near the distributor and one on the right hand side of motor when ur facing the motor. The are both the same size and have only 1 wire on em.
If i remember one has a white connector and one has a black connector. Costs about 20 bucks for the pair.
