Could be sender or pump. do not run the engine until you're sure you have a good pump. Does it blink on and off--coming on mainly at idle? This would be normal for an old engine. If it stays on and the pump is bad, you will ruin your engine. You can try replacing the sending uniot, as that is cheap compared to the pump, but don't run it long to check new sender. If new sender stays red, shut down and replace pump.

SOURCE: Audi 80 oil pressure light

i think from memory that the oil pressure switch is at the back of the cylinder head, if its not there it will be located just above the oil filter, these switches are very cheep to buy and can be bought from any good motor factors. You are right to suspect the switch, its the first thing to eliminate before bogging your self down with more complicated and expensive problems.

The car has entered into fail safe mode. It wil not allow the engine to rev high but allows you only to get to a mechanic or to get some oil into the engine. What's the level like? Is there any trace of leakeage?

Is a pressure converting element on the block. Can be leak or shot. Or wire harnes problem worst case. If leak you see dripping oil mostly. Had that 2 times on a car.

HI I HAVE A AUDI A4 1.8T 2011 MY EMMISION LIGHT WENT ON AND I DONT HAVE OIL READINGS CAN I STILL DRIVE THE CAR


No I would not crank the car. If you do not have oil pressure reading then it can cause catastrophic engine failure if you crank or drive. Have you checked the oil level via the dipstick? and if so what was the level?

Why do I still have low pressure light on?


The oil pressure may actually be low. Remove the sensor and connect an oil pressure testing unit in its place. Take the readings at idle and usually also at 2000 rpm. Not sure about the 2000 but the service manual will give you the test specs. Compare your readings to the min/max given in the manual.

sludge could be causing the light to come on. most likely the sensor came on because you went a certain mileage without changing your oil.

Check the oil pressure wire attached to the gauge usually in the engine compartment. Dirt can interfere with the signal causing a short which will give you the symptoms you describe. Hope this helps

I do not have the owners manual for my 1996 audi a4. I get an error on the dash that flashes 'In 2'. The oil light also comes on sometimes. Any ideas?

Check the oil level is ok, change the oil if it hasn't been recently done.
Check operation of the oil press alarm sensor,
Check the oil pressure - using an independant oil pressure gauge if in doubt.

2000 Audi A4 quattro with abrupt gear shifting & low oil pressure


I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!

Hi i have a problem with my car i was coming from work and the oil pressure warning light went on then went i got home the engine was making a noise i check the oil level and was ok so i dont know what is...


when you see oil pressure warning light it is shows means no pressure from the oil pump.
so you got oil also you heard noise coming from the engine when there is no oil coming for lubrication simply all moving part makes noise like cam-shaft and cylinder head.

so check the oil pump pressure.
