Question about 1992 Volkswagen Golf
Hook up a manual oil pressure guage and take readings of the actual amount of oil pressure in the engine. It may be that the switch is bad even though it is new. It may also be that you have low enough oil pressure at idle to trip the switch. On my 2.0 liter the low oil switch turns on at 4.4 PSI at idle but when the engine is revved up it turns on below 26 PSI. You may also have 2 oil pressure switches, one for low and one for high. They would be located very close together on the oil filter housing. Make sure you replaced the right switch.
You want to get this straightened out quickly as VW engines are very unforgiving when you put off repairs. Hope this helps.
