Default 1.9tdi oil warning light

if its not one thing its another

changed oil and filter last weekend and its been prefect all week (300miles+) , jumped in to set off for work this morning i drove 100mts down the road and the oil warning light came on ?? had a look under the bonnet and all the connections are in place and theres plenty of oil in the thing , drove it back home had another look and all seems ok .. tonight i have changed the oil pressure sender on the oil filter housing also the switch on the side of the head but still no change

the oil light is off when just ticking over but comes on at around 1800 rpm , any ideas

going to have to buy a oil pressure gauge just to make sure all is well inside ,

are there any more oil pressure switches anywhere apart from the oil filter housing and side of the cylinder head . also what pressure should they read

one thing i did rewire the rev counter this sunday

well it looks like I'm ripping the oil light bulb out and fitting another gauge to my A pillar ( oil pressure )


wonder why it does it , well i guess a golf ecu and wiring loom should really be hooked up to erm golf clocks but thats just plain boring wheres the challenge in that

mine was beeping ever since i did the conversion, i had a gauge on the a pillar so i knew the pressure was good, i finally got round to getting the alternator working the other day a ran the red and black wire through to the fuse box and connected it to pin 6 the rev counter came to life and the oil pressure warning beeping stopped. mad

well that is just bizarre ?? i connected the red/black to port number 6 and my light has just started coming on

how did you connect the wire to port 6 , cut the wire and join the feed direct from the alternator or leave the wire intact and scotch block the bugger



also just bought myself VAG-COM whoo , tried to book the van into my local garage today but he's booked up until a mid next week so I'm going to do the pump timing myself , every days a school day eh , be good practise i reckon then we'll see what this tdi thing is all about plus just found out i have 110 bhp nozzles fitted so I'm on the look out for the pump and ecu off a AFN engined car
