Question about 1998 Volkswagen Golf
I have this buzzing problem with my vw citi golf chico, it comes from the speedo area on my dashboard and happens all the time on and of, the oil warning light comes on but I have checked the oil and it is fine. How do I fix this
The buzzing is most likely the speedo cable ive had a few older cars that do this you might try having someone oil the cable if they can or you can as for the oil light it might be low oil pressure or a bad oil level sensor or even a dirty plug on the sensor

I had same problem because I skipped an oil change. You have sludge in your oil. To protect the oil pump, the inlet pipe is right at the bottom of the sump closed of by a very fine sieve to prevent damage to the oil pump. When motor is running, this sludge clogg this sieve. You do have enough oil, but it cannot be pumped fast enough and the buzzer is a low preasure warning.
How I know this, I took my sump off and cleaned it out by hand.
After replacing oil and filter, I decided to add sludge remover, to get all sludge out and the same problem was back again, so I would advise against comercial cleaners when you have too much sludge and dirt in your oil..
A rather radical solution that I found worked on the Golf and my Audi, was to leave the old filter in. Drain all the oil when hot, put back sump plug and add 4L of power parafin instead of oil. Let the motor run for 30secs to 1 minute. DO NOT REV. Run at about 1000 RPM. Make sure you drain ALL out, replace the filter and add new oil.
That solved the problem in one go!

Check on the side of your cars head if you have a sensor and whether its plugged in or where your oil filter turns on if the sensor is plugged in
