Most of the time you can have this problem fixed for free by an on board diagnostics scanner (OBD) scanner visit your local auto parts store (example) autozone and they can have this turned off or you can remove the -negative battery cable this will clear all codes but if it is an ongoing problem it may come back on. good luck!

If the information is not in the owner's manual, you should be able to call a VW service tech to get the answer or check one of the VW user groups on the Internet.

Have the computer scanned. If you have a service engine or emissions light on then a service code has been stored in the computer and only a scan will tell you what the problem is.

Code 16518 on mk4 golf


Can't by pass as oxygen sensors control your fuel

I suspect your exhaust converter has failed & the car has
been running rich for years & ruined it

Wouldn't your repair guy be able to solve all your issues,
after all you were at a shop for some work

Sounds like they sold some service instead of diagnosing
the reason you were there

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

Hi there,

There's one more thing you can try. On a Mk4 VW, you can reset the service indicator by doing the following:

- With the ignition off, press and hold the tripmeter reset button (on the right side of the dash)
- Turn on your ignition, wait for all the warning lights to come on, then let go of the tripmeter button
- Where your trip distance is normally shown, the display will read "OIL".
- To reset the service interval, turn the clock adjust switch (left side) for about 5 seconds. The trip meter display will change to "---" indicating the code has been reset.

You can verify this by turning the car off and on again. Let me know if that worked out for you.
