my tdi beetle does the same thing. i have talked to mechanics at an import shop near where i live and they tell me that the wiring harness to the glow plugs can develop more resistance than the engine computer likes and it will set a code and turn the light on. maybe since you have a newer one (mine's a 99) you can buy one that just plugs in. in my car i have to cut wires and solder so haven't gotten around to it yet. you are going to have some oil smell with a diesel, i suppose you know that, so it must be stronger than it used to be. check the fittings around the fuel filter, if they have a slow leak you will get an odor. i had a leak once at the fuel line at the bottom of the engine compartment. had to remove the line and replace a seal, if you are having that you can find it pretty easy. just put some clean cardboard under the engine when you park the car and then look at it the next day. if you find some spots you want to look at what and where. of course diesel fuel is oil but it looks a little different than engine oil. if you have a fuel leak higher up it will likely burn off on the hot block, could be the source of your smell. hope that helps

there is normaly a connector under your seat for the airbag light just unclip it clean it with a wire brush or scourer then connect it back up. this should work. the handbrake light means a fault in braking system i would get that checked out at a garage.

there may be two canisters.. one could be for your clutch for example, if they say on the cap 'only use dot 3 or 4 brake fluid etc... then dont be afraid to top them up.. the clutch is mostlikely smaller and the brake may be an oval shape split into 2 different sections and i would be mounted onto the brake booster which is a big ufo shaped thing, you reali cant miss it, if the light is still on you will have to get the mechanic to adjust the handbrake because it may not be fully releasing

SOURCE: Hi, I drive a Toyota
There is no way of knowing what all has been damaged by the low oil pressure without taking the motor apart. you might get away with replacing the heads and flywheel but something else will pop up later and cost you more trouble. You will also have to replace the oil pump since the pressure dropped, umnless you just ran out of oil and the pump wan't hurt. My advice on this is to talk to an engine rebuilder and get an estimate on rebuilding your current engine, that way he can save any parts that were not damaged and will only have to replace the bad parts. Check to see what the difference in price is whether you replace the motor with a new one vs a low milage used one against the cost of rebuilding yours. Some cases it eisier to replace the motor instead of rebuilding. I suspect that you have much more damage than you think. Loosing oil pressure is a death sentence for engines!
