It could just be a sensor problem, but there is a little more that you need to know. the sensor doesn't measure oil level, it measures oil pressure. you can have enough oil in your engine and still not have enough pressure. low oil pressure can mean that there's something plugged in the oil system. this doesn't happen very often but if it does it's pretty bad for your engine. replacing the sensor shouldn't cost much and if that's all that was the matter the light will not be lit anymore. it's good to have those lights working properly, not just on all the time so that if something really does go wrong you get some sort of warning about it. hope that helps

Sounds like a sensor. you may have hit a good bump or something knocking the sensor for oil level or pressure loose, it may also just be dirty so you first have to locate it and i'll admit on a Audi I ahve no idea where it would be, But it seems like just a sensor

It is probably a break in the wires. If they are getting little or no current, that is what it is. Hopefully, you can find the break. There is a chance it is the light switch circuit, but I would say a break in the line.

May be a little late but...check your oil filter for the long type not the shorter version for vw..With my 97 a4 if the smaller filter is installed at a lube shop it will set the oil light off.They both fit the audi but the smaller one lacks the oil capacity and starves the engine and sets the light off.Even a autoparts store clerk can make the same mistake as ive been there. they are said to be for the same application but are not.
napa #1191 is correct for the 2.8 is the long oe version.

Mk1 A4 ABS warning light


I have a 2000 Audi A4 and the break wear sensor warning light come on for me too. It does not flash and is orange in color. I have asked the Audi dealer twice about it and they told me it's because the previous owner put aftermarket break pads on it, thus messing up the sensors. I don't know about the ABS warning and other than that I wish you luck on it.
