SOURCE: 2003 VW Passat "Oil Press, Turn Off Engine" and "STOP" Light

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

SOURCE: low oil warning light staying on oil level ok

would be best to have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to be sure you have oil pressure.
hopefully you just have a bad oil pressure switch this is located on oil filter adapter rt above filter

SOURCE: Dip stick reading

The design of an oil pressure sensor must be tougher than rocket science; the failure rate is awful high for the simple task it performs. 
This is a common failure and they are generally not terribly expensive to replace. They are supposed to make contact if the pressure falls below ~ 4 PSI, a level that pretty much tells you to STOP and add oil because at that pressure, there could already be some damage to bearing surfaces. The typical range is ~ 30-60 PSI for proper lubrication and (oil) cooling without blowing gaskets sealing the oil channels. 
As you wrote, the engine isn't rattling; just replace the sensor.

Your transmission is sealed and has no dip stick, checking the fluid level properly involves using a factory scan tool.

SOURCE: oil light on when oil is full

Inspect the Oil Pressure Switch to see any loose connection, if you don't see any loose connection. First, replace the Oil Pressure Switch and check the Oil Pressure Warning Light still stay ON.

If the Oil Pressure Warning Light still ON, after you replaced the Oil Pressure Switch. Well , bad Oil Pump.
hope this can help, Good luck.

How to tell the motor oil is filled on the dip stick

Why does my oil pressure light comes on when turning

Very first thing, check your oil. Even if it is a little low, when making a turn, the oil will shift and starve the oil pump making your oil warning light come on. This is a common problem on that modal Ram! My 1999 Ram 1500 would do the same thing. I check my oil regulatory, even with the oil 1/2 way in safe range on the dip stick, the oil warning light would come on when making turns. I have to fill my engine all the way up to the top mark in the safe range on the dip stick to keep this from happening. Be careful not to over fill. If this continues, you may have a bad oil pump/pick up. I would almost bet, you are have the same problem I had. Good Luck.

Peugeot 106 warning & oil light comes on when car is started & whilst driving turning corners?

Check the oil level on the dip stick in your engine. If the dip stick indicates you are low on oil add the proper oil for your make and model.

I have a warning light on the dashboard looks like a tap/ pump, what is it?

Hi there,

If it's this one:

...then it is your OIL PRESSURE WARNING light.

This means your engine is either low on oil, has the wrong oil viscosity in it, or the pressure sensor is faulty.

2006 vw passat. screen says stop! warning low oil. engine off ? what does that mean? Also servive engine now! I just bought the car yesterday and it has no owners manual. I did notice what looked like...

First, check your engine oil level , while on level ground, add if it's low. (The oil viscosity should be labeled on the oil filler cap) Blue smoke is a sign of burning oil, not a good sign. White smoke is a sign of coolant mixing with your engine oil, a worse sign.
Your computer is telling you to check your oil, so do it, or get it done.
If your oil is low, top it off and keep checking it regularly to see if your engine is consuming it. If it is, I would recommend getting it looked at for either a leak, or low compression. (Worn out piston rings will cause oil consumption and poor performance.)

Have you ever heard of the engine oil reservoir being full and the dipstick reading empty? I just bought an old 1985 toyota pickup truck and it was fine until I had my oil changed. After driving for a...

When your car is low on oil, there is a sensor (sometimes called a switch, as well) that will light up an indicator inside the car to inform you of the low oil level. In some cases, checking the dipstick will show that there is actually oil present, which can be confusing and frustrating because it contradicts the sensor. If this happens to be the case, more than likely the oil pressure switch/sensor is malfunctioning and will need replacing.

How do you turn of the oil light in your infinity

The engine oil 'warnig' light being ON indicates that you have a BAD problem with your engine oil system: this indicates that your engine is not being lubricated properly (due to low pressure) and you should get it checked immediately!
Oil warning light ON can be caused by:
- Low Engine Oil level
- Blocked oil filter
- Leaking oil filter
- Leaking oil seals
- Faulty oil pressure sensor (pretty rare) or loose sensor connector
- Also heck the obvious like loose Oil Filler cap and dip stick seal.
Hope it heps and do not drive your car without resolving this issue first as you could easily blow the engine!

Have a 2007 Santa Fe - Just took it in for an oil change last week. Now the oil warning light is on but the dip stick reads full. Has also starting making a squealing noise

Sometimes the dealership will forget to reset the oil light after changing the oil. It is there to remind you when it is time to get it changed. If you call them and let them know that they forgot to do it, they will probably just walk you through it. Also, check to make sure the put the oil cap back on ticht. It is not the dipstick, but the larger cap on the top of the engine that reads "oil".

My girlfriend is in need of how to check her oil and doesn't know where to begin. The dipstick on her 2003 passat, the location and color is important for me to tell her but cant remember since it has been...

Good chance that the oil is low and you could be in for problems. The dip stick for the engine oil should have a yellow ring to a tube, just pull up on it and there are markings at the end of the stick as to low, add, and full. If your not sure she can do this, just have her get the gas bar attendant to check for you. Don't worry about the transmission dip stick, if it's an Automatic transmission, the car does not have one. The transmission can only be checked at the dealer or qualified transmission shop. Good luck and hope this help.
