    i had something similar, no faults on vag com though... had to get a new dash pod at the cost of 385! :-(

    maybe try replacing one of the instrument cluster fuses, think they are numbers 11 and 15, 5amp.

    Could be the sender or a short on the wiring. I assume you have checked the oil level & pressure?

    Oil pressure warning is not a good sign.

    I'd say stop driving it, and get it checked out for engine damage where carbon deposits have formed from not using synthetic oils. This sludge may kill your oil pump and engine, leaving you with a hefty repair bill.

    Get it checked asap.
