Oil level is low. Have it filled up right away.
Then have it checked by a mechanic soon after to see if you have leaks in the system.

What does the oil beeping light mean?

the flashing, beeping oil light is oil pressure, not level. low oil pressure means that the oil is all there, but its not flowing properly through the engine. dirty oil, a dirty oil filter, heavier than normal weight oil, a failing oil pump- any of these could be the culprit

Why i hear constant beeping in my 2012 Jetta ?

Beeping with no lights on normally means a dis-connected wire to the oil pressure sender. Check the connection to the oil pressure sender and the wire too for internal damage.

Engine light is on, oil light is on, hazor light keeps beeping. I have a SAAB 2002 93.

An oil pressure warning light or low gauge reading means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed.

I have a 2003 jetta and the oil light flashed and beeped like twice what does it mean

it means you have low oil pressure. stop the engine ASAP and check the oil level, fill it up if its low. if its not low, find out why the light is on, but dont drive it. if you drive it you may already have engine damage.

The oil light keeps goin off is it safe to drive for 2 hour wirs it

the oil light means low oil pressure, it is best to find out why the light is on and fix it, or two hours can destroy the engine.
It may be a simple problem, like you need a bit more oil, or the sender is broken,

The oil light keeps flashing with a beep beep sound. i changed the oil pressure switch and the problem still continues.

DON'T DRIVE IT !!!! DON'T START IT AGAIN UNTIL YOU PUT A TEST GAUGE ON IT. you MUST have a gauge put on it to check for pressure. flashing and beep beep mean no pressure... not good. explain in detail how/when this happened ??

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.
