You may have the problem I did. It's something called a "Hall Effects Sensor" and it's part of the assembly for the distributor. Even after an oil change, it still flickers "red".

Unhook the battery and hook it back up, that will fix the light. The light it just warning you cause the people that did the oil change before did not resent the computer that is why the oil light is on. so just do what i said and it should work.

2002 vw 1.4 16v lupo, oil light keeps coming on and beeping, have changed pressure switch and oil and filter but no change, oil pressure ok


Check the actual oil pressure with a gauge to see if there is a problem internally such as the oil pump.

Why does oil light turn red and beeps when stooping at light and then comes on and beeps continuesly after driving awhile on my 2002 Volkswagon Beetle Turbo S?


First check the oil level. pull out dipstick with engine off, wipe, and re-"dip" it to see . If the level is O.K., it may be serious . See a mechanic.

Oil Light came on beeping, then stopped, oil level ok, what can this be. I recently had my head Gasket replaced, could this have anything to do with this. 1995 Jetta CSX


The beep is an error message not necessarily oil. Check connections to all senders by the engine i.e. water and the 2 oils. Check coolant level as well.

The oil light is on a beeping sound comes on like my seat belt is not fasten....it has oil in it....likes 1000 miles for an oil change


hello
Does the icon look like a oil can or is a oil life reminder light if it is a oil can icon then you need to check the vehicles oil pressure and make sure that it does have the correct amount of oil pressure and you have voltage to yhe oil pressure sending unit(switch) if it does then you need to replace the oil pressure sending unit(switch) seen alot of problem with the sending units
Good luck

I have a 1999 Beetle and When I'm driving My dash beeps like 10 beeps in a row and the inside lights come on but nothing so up on the dash to tell me the problem


Ok, so are you saying NO LIGHTS come on to tell you what issue is on the dash? The beeping you hear is a low oil pressure warning beep. Its telling you that you are either low on oil or that the oil pump is not delivering oil properly to the motor (car is sensing low oil pressure but on these cars there is no oil pressure gauge on dash to look at). Check your oil level and make sure you are not low. Best time is in morning on flat surface start car and let run 5 minutes. Stop car, let sit 5 minutes and then pull dipstick and check level. Also make sure you are using the correct oil and viscosity for this motor. VW's require VW certified oil and a certain viscosity. You can go to www.mobil1.com to find the correct oil available in the states for your vehicle. Too thin or too thick a viscosity could cause similar issue. Otherwise please clarify the light comment as I have never heard of the lights coming on automatically after a beeping noise and I will research.

Check oil level warning comes on. Oil level is OK. This warning is intermittent.



first thing is check the oil pressure not by the instrument panel if ok then panel is out if not its the sensor or oil pump Try this replace the temperature sender with the new green model and oil light will disappear no more three annoying beeps.

Oil light on and off in yhe mornings oil level ok


If the level is OK, either the oil pressure sensor is bad, or the pump is failing.

Oil light comes on and beeps


Changing oil can't hurt. When was the last time you had it changes?How many miles on that engine?Changing approximately ever 3,000 miles is common practice. The engine oil light and the automatic transmission are two seperate problems.     Engine oil light come on because the sensor reads a low oil preasure.If the engine is not worn then the light can be caused by the sensor getting cloged up (from dirty oil ) and not reading the preasure correctly.

Oil light keeps coming on and beeps


This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.
