Question about 2004 Audi A4
I also have a '04 AUDI A4 3.0 Quatro and the low oil sensor comes on and goes away after I pull the oil stick out and put it back. I did notice that when I had the oil changed and it came on exactly 3,000 miles after that, which is the mileage recommended to change oil by the place I had oil changed. It goes away and comes back on after every 60/65 miles.
I am afraid to go back to the same garage because they might recommend something outrageous. How to find out which sensor it is and how to replace it by yourself. HELP!!

You have two sensors that could cause the light to go on. The oil pressure sensor and oil level sensor. Both are easily replaced by someone relatively OK with cars (DIY). You would want to spend the $100 or so and have the dealership do a full diognostic to verify if its truly the sensor and which one. In my case, same problem, and it has been verified that it was the oil level sensor.

I also have a 2004 Audi A4 3.0 Quatro and the low oil sensor comes on periodically. I pull the oil dip stick and put it back and it goes away. Maybe it will work itself out.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
