Question about 2001 Audi TT
I see that I am not alone with this problem. It is my girlfriends vehicle and the sensor light went on about a year ago. The dealer replaced it and I believe it cost about $300-$500 to install a new sensor. Now the sensor light is back on again, the windows won't roll up (all the way), and I know its a new sensor so there is something wrong with the car and from reading I see it is a notrious problem. I was just wondering where the sensor is at so if push comes to shove I can replace it, but I would prefer putting that rubber gasget on the rail to get the switch to turn off. However I don't know where on the rail I should be looking at. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Mine has did this also! I put a rubber peice at the end of the left top latch hook and it applies enough pressuer to active the switch to show that the top is closed

SOURCE: 2002 audi a4 oil light issue
There are potentially two different problems here.
1. A fault with the actual oil pressure.
2. An electrical fault with the switching circuit.
If you are confident the problem is not with the oil pressure, disconnect the wiring from the switch for a period of time. If the light still comes on periodically the fault must be with the wiring circuit shorting to earth. There will be no fire hazard to this approach as the voltage will drop over dash lamp.
However if the problem is with the oil supply system, the danger with this approach is you are potentially unaware of a serious problem
Such as the oil filter collapsed or the oil pressure release spring could be jammed open/closed which would cause the engine to not have the correct operating pressure.

SOURCE: Convertible Top "Sensor"??
I'm sorry, the message I got was to clarify my problem, and the problem was this: The power top on my 2008 TT Roadster would neither go up nor down via electronic control, and the emergency remedy, a.k.a. release the pressure on the pistons via wild goose chase through a hole in the driver's side deep in the trunk. REMEDY:
I took the car to the dealership and they replaced the "convertible top flap motors". The top works, but they laughed when I asked for an emergency pair, even though the service manager told me that the emergency piston release remedy recommended in the manual was pretty much useless. I must say that aside from my bitter words about the problem, and my consternation, there are few things that are as relaxing as a cruise around the Croton Reservoir system with the top down.

You have a bad camshaft sensor. It's located at the back of the driver side valve cover. Takes 20 minutes to replace. I had exact problem and this solved it.
