    Question Orange oil sensor light - 1.9 TDI 130

    Hi guys.

    The orange oil sensor light just popped up on my dash. Checked the oil level via the dipstick and it's full (just had an oil change 800miles ago) and I have checked the fuse (#5) which is fine.

    Faulty sensor?

    Any way to address this without dropping the 800mile-old oil?

    Hi,

    I had the same fault on my 2.0 FSI A4. It was the oil level sensor that I had to change to rectify the fault.
    The sensor was located at the bottom of the sump so had to dump all the oil. If you can, plug a diagnostic tool in and it will tell you which sensor is at fault.

    Hi,

    You will have to drain the oil if it is the sensor, but just pour into a clean container and re-use (the oil filter should be able to get rid on any debris).

    Buy a £1 wash bucket and use that
