Re: VW Golf 51 Plate Oil Pressure Indicator Light
The "oil light" measures the oil pressure in the engine, not the oil level in the sump. I would not drive it an inch until I had it checked by a competent mechanic. New engines are expensive!

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Is your check engine light on? It is to due with your exhaust. Check to see if oil or any other fluid is leaking on your exhaust. There might be a leak around your O2 sensors.
It seems the fault is with the oil pressure switch you have replaced. This switch seems to need a higher pressure to cut off and the oil pressure light is coming on because it indicates low.
So if your oil is good , the oil filters were changed recently this fault must not come up. if not replace oil and oil filters to check but keep this option that the fault was never there earlier and a new part can also be faulty.
first thing is check the oil pressure not by the instrument panel if ok then panel is out if not its the sensor or oil pump Try this replace the temperature sender with the new green model and oil light will disappear no more three annoying beeps.
Not sure what model your car is,but try checking the two oil sender units,one located onthe side of the cylinder head[gearbox side]and the other on the oil filter housing.Also have a mechanic check oil pressure,should be+-2bar pressure at idle.If everything checks out,including the wiring,try another instrument cluster..Good luck
This message does not mean the engine is low on oil, it means the oil change is due. if you have added oil, it may mean it is now overfilled. This could cause as much damage as low oil, VW have a system on the vehicle that tells you when the vehicle requires servicing, the next message should be inspection 1. these are the VW service schedules. They are worked out on mileage and the way the vehicle is driven. Take the vehicle to your local decent repair shop and get the oil and filter replaced, and remind them to reset the service indicator. After this all will be well.
