Sounds like the oil pressure switch/sensor is faulty. You would have to replace it.
Its unlikely the oil pressure is low, because if it was and the lamp came on, then its propably too late for the engine, it would lock up very quickly.
Hope that helps

Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

SOURCE: Audi A5 engine oil top up

Audi cars do not use much oil as far as I know.A new engine which is not warned together can take some oil of course.Make sure that you use the proper oil type specified by the manufacturer.Try to change the oil and filter completely,then measure the oil consumption.Should not be more then 1 liter on 10000kms.

These engines had an issue with the oil pick up sceen getting clogged this may be the case. If so the oil pan would have to come off and either replace or clean the screen. It would also be recomended to flush the oil system with an oil flush kit. BG makes an additive that works pretty good.

Your oil sensor may be faulty, your pump may be bad, or your may have a leak since you said the fluid level is okay.

SOURCE: fiat brava oil warning light wont go off

<grin> I don't know why or how this ended up under the category of Fiat 2006 X1/9 - I'd like to have one but I think I will have to be satisfied with my '87 Bertone instead-
I would highly recommend you have a shop replace the sensor (very soon!) with a pressure gauge to measure the pressure directly to make certain you aren't dealing with a failed or obstructed oil pump. This will only take a few minutes and shouldn't cost much. If your engine isn't clattering, I suspect the replacement sensor isn't any good either.

Car wont start, oil on top of the piston


On a car this old my first guess would be warn out rings. No quick fixes there really. You need to rebuild, HOWEVER if its just warn rings usually the car will start and run it just loses a few ponies. I would check the spark plugs. Are they corroded,oil soaked?

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

Engine warning light on dash


Possible that the oil pressure is low , the oil level is low or the oil pressure switch has failed.
Check level of oil, check for pressure of the oil to the sensor -swap and test and finally check for error codes to confirm the case.

The engine warning light wont go off, (Mazda 6) even after oil, water and coolant have been added. is it time for an oil change?


Yes it is time for an oil filter and oil change specially if there is a lapse of over 10 months or a mileage of more than 5000 miles clocked since the last oil change.
