Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf

I have a golf GLE 1995 model. Recently the oil

I have a golf GLE 1995 model. Recently the oil warning light started flashing and an alarm sounding. This lasts for between 30-60 seconds. The engine sounds fine, and does not lose any power. The local mechanic cannot identify the problem. About a month ago an oil pressure plug/switch had been replaced as the car was loosing oil. Any other suggestions as to what the problem could be besides failing oil pump? Mechanic says maybe a dashboard problem.Iam worried about driving the car in this condition

Do an oil change. This will do the trick. I have changed all three of the sensors and it didn't work. I did an oil change and off went the light.

Oil indicator light keeps flashing and eventually sounds a beeping alarm. Only thing is there is the correct amount of oil in the car. Been to garage and they checked level. Is this simply a switch problem...


The only way to tell for sure is to temporarily install a mechanical pressure gauge and read the actual pressure. That will determine the next course of action--replace the pressure sensor/switch, or recommend remedial action within the engine itself (worn bearings, worn oil pump, or plugged intake screen). Hope this helps!

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.

Glow light flashes


Correct - the glow light flashing is an indication that there is fault. Often this is associated with a blown brake bulb or faulty brake switch.

1995 Nissan Maxima alarm system


Hey, I bought my 1995 Nissan Maxima GLE brand new back in July 1994 with factory installed alarm, it just doen't make any sound when you arm or disarm it with remote. The only way you can tell whether it is armed or disarmed is from the lever position of your doors and the blinking red light under the dash. Only the newer versions of Nissan/Infiniti's has the "Audio/Silent" mode button on the remote which allows you to activate/deactivate you car alarm with an audiable sound or no sound at all. No worry, there is nothing wrong with your remote or car alarm.

Gauges say no pressure in engine 1995 vw golf


There are two pressure switches. One for oil pressure and one for a dirty oil filter. Are you sure you've changed the right switch. If car drives for 30 mls it doesn't sound like you need an engine. The spluttering is likely to be completely unrelated to the oil warning I suspect.
