The warning light is for oil pressure.

First check the dipstick, make sure there's enough oil in the engine.
If so, then there may be a problem with the oil filter, when was it last changed.
It could be the sender, is the connection good and clean.
Finally the oil pump filter may be blocked, or possibly the oil pump has failed.

Check oil light stays on


Your vehicle may have an "oil level" sensor built into the oil pan. If so, and the sensor is bad, the dash will constantly tell you that the engine needs more oil even if it does not. Checking the oil with the dipstick, a minute after the engine has been turned off on level ground is always the best way to check your oil. Try scanning the vehicles computer systems to see if there are any fault codes. The warning light may also be on a timer that just needs to be reset. The "Check Oil" light should be separate from the engine oil pressure warning light. As long as the engine oil pressure light stays off, you should be ok. Checking the oil pressure with a manual gauge would be a good idea as well.

My oil light stays on even though I have enough oil in my


The oil warning light is telling you the oil pressure is below 10psi.
If the pressure switch is working correctly the engine has lost oil pressure and-or oil.
You would need to replace the switch or have the pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

Oil warning light on a brava car wont go off


Best would be is to measure the oil pressure out put.
Sometimes the oil filter could be the culprit.
Was the oil warning light staying 'on; prior to the oil and filter change?..If not thn the first thing to check is to replace the oil filter ..its better to install the 'original' one .
Hope this helps!

No, just keep an eye on it to see it does not start staying on longer and longer. The oil pressure sensor my be a little off,and at worse the oil pump is a little weak. Just keep up on the oil changes.3500 miles max.

VW passatt warning lights staying on


Check the wires that are going to the brake pad sensors.Some shops will install pads that don't have the sensor connections on them, causing this light to stay lit.
