VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

"Check Oil" warning light comes on at randum


Probably nothing whatsoever to do with you checking the dipstick. On the golf when the warning light flashes, you reset it by opening the bonnet. That is why you think that when you check the dipstick it resets, when in fact it was opening the bonnet. Check your bonnet switch

Golf mk4 tdi major oil leak from lower engine. oil warning light on.


If is loosing oil too fast the light will come up,because oil pump won't compesate for oil pressure lost without proper oil level.Anyhow,i'm thinking oil pan has bad gasket or, or possibly could be hole in the pan.It happens when small rock on the road hits pan so hard it will make a hole.Cheap materials like Magnesium sulfate that are commonly used on VW's these days are just not quality.Hope I could help you.

Oil pressure warning light is buzzing and i've replaced the sensor on my 94 vw golf


Could be a few things, I assume you've checked the oil level. You could have a worn engine and therefore low oil pressure, could need a new oil pump. you can connect a mechanical oil guage to check whether it is a problem with your guage

I have this buzzing problem with my vw citi golf 1.4i


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
