    my car is in fail safe mode, PRDN all light up and stay on. car shakes upon acceleration, cant go more then 20 mph. turbo tries to turn but all power fails. I floor it and it gets some power but what i came down to was maybe its the transmission control module??

The car has entered into fail safe mode. It wil not allow the engine to rev high but allows you only to get to a mechanic or to get some oil into the engine. What's the level like? Is there any trace of leakeage?

    Did they replace the oil filter when you did your service?

    Might pay to give them a ring??

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.

Oil pressure gauge reads low all the time, oil level is good and oil is clean. pressure warning light does not come on when engine running, appears to working normally. Engine running normally A4 1800...


Jim, you are going to have to look at the oil pressure sensor. It may be bad or it may just have a loose wire or bad wire. This sensor picks up the oil pressure and activates your light.

The yellow symbol with a line under it means only to warn you if the engine oil level is low when its running. If its RED sign then this is your low engine oil pressure warning light.

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.

Oil light came on and there is a knocking sound


It sounds as if you seized the motor due to lack of oil ( very easy to prevent too bad you never checked the oil level )

You're low on oil - the Audi dipstick isn't the most accurate thing out there. Add a quart and see what happens.

Engine oil warning light


You need to check your owners manual for the difinition of this light, it may just be the oil change light, or it could be a pressure or oil level light, have you checked the oil level just to be safe?

Audi 80 oil pressure light


i think from memory that the oil pressure switch is at the back of the cylinder head, if its not there it will be located just above the oil filter, these switches are very cheep to buy and can be bought from any good motor factors. You are right to suspect the switch, its the first thing to eliminate before bogging your self down with more complicated and expensive problems.
