    Probably the sensor on its way out, search on here, there was a thread fairly recently about it.

    Re: Oil light

    It is the oil service indicator warning light.
    You can reset it by following the instructions below -

    Press and hold the right button. (odometer reset)

    now switch on the ignition
    (oil lamp will not flash, but on at all times)

    press the right button again
    (insp is now displayed)

    pull left button. (clock set)
    (------ are now displayed)

    Pull left button again

    Depending on what service light is displayed (IN1 or OIL) you might have to play around with it to reset the correct one.

    This works on my A4 tdi (110bhp) but should work on all.

    Hope this helps.

    Jim.

    Play around with it, you might have reset the IN1 service light and not the OIL service light.

    It took me a couple of goes before I got it right.
