Question about 1991 Volkswagen Fox

Oil sensor light

I just purchased a 1991 VW Fox and have changed the oil and filter. It is full, but the oil sensor light comes on and flashes and buzzes constantly. I tried removing the fuse but then I have no instruments at all i.e. turn signals. Is there a way to disconnect it?

There is no Way to Bypass it. Did you get the Owners Manual with the Car????

    There should be a Reset Illustration in the Owners Manual that will tell you how to Shut this Off. If Not, You will need a Mechanic for this.

Look on rear side of engine. There are possibly a couple sensors screwed into engine block, but if you purchase oil pressure switch first you will see which one it is.

My 88 vw fox wagons oil light consantly flickers. I just changed the oil and oil filter. Any wag I can make this stop. And the speedometer is reading wrong and the dash lights don't work and fuel gauge...


I think that you should check fuses for the gauges. But it might be a bad wire shorting out. I also have seen these cars to blow all the dash lights before. As far as the oil light there is a sensor that goes into the oil pan or the block that may be dirty or shorting out.

Yes it is related, don't drive it. First thing you should do is install a new oil filter even if it isn't time for an oil change.

91 vw golf will not stay running after 15 minutes


You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.

Oil light flashing & beeping


This usually indicates that the oil pressure is low, but you need to get it checked out whether it's just a pressure sensor fault or connection issue, or it actually has got low oil pressure. The last one is the most concerning, because it could be causing internal damage if there is not enough oil pressure. Hopefully with a relatively late model car it will just be a sensor issue, but I would get it checked out ASAP, and preferably not use the car in the meantime.
Hope this helps, Mark.
