Oil light comes on in hot weather

The oil light on my Audi TT comes on when driving in bumper to bumper traffic in hot weather. The oil levels are however fine. Audi says the on board computer needs to be changed - this will be the 2nd replacement. Does anyone have a solution to the problem?

Changing the computer doesn't sound right. Most likely a bad oil temp sensor. Make sure you are using the recommended weight (synthetic) oil.

I have a 2002 Audi TT Quattro. Recently my oil warning light started flashing and does not go off. The oil level is fine. Any ideas what could be causing this


Could well be the sensor/sending unit at fault as Dan states.
Could also be the oil has lost some of its viscosity, become thin and not enough pressure for the sensor to work with.
Had a similar problem with a Citroen some years back was advised to drain the oil, flush the engine out with flushing oil (please read the manufacturers instructions closely) fit a new filter and refill. This worked well for me, also cured a smoking problem from the exhaust.

Check oil level warning comes on. Oil level is OK. This warning is intermittent.



first thing is check the oil pressure not by the instrument panel if ok then panel is out if not its the sensor or oil pump Try this replace the temperature sender with the new green model and oil light will disappear no more three annoying beeps.

chances are, the level sensor is going bad, you can change it next time it is serviced ( while there is not any oil in the car) this should solve your problem.

Low oil pressue light at low rpm


wrong oil need 10w 40 weight caster oil is best. See right now you have thin oil and in hot weather and hot motor temp . It just gets thiner . now with 10w 40 you will bring it up a bit thus lowering the oil presser and bringing it to a happy medium .
