Question about 2001 Audi A4
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.

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.

<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.
