    If it's a 1.8t you need to have a read about sludge and how it affects the pick up pipe in the sump.

    Hi mate I've just done a post on this same problem but now I need a whole new engine because the oil pump stopped working thus the engine receiving insufficient oil. I would advise you to sort it out ASAP.

    Oil pressure is red so won't be pressure sensor I wouldn't have thought. Could be bonnet catch or oil level sensor or just has used a bit of oil as daft as it sounds

    dec1579, can you please give us a bit more information on the engine type and how many miles you have on the clock. The engine type is on a sticker on the engine and also in the spare wheel well in the boot. It will be something like BLB, BPW etc.
    The 2.0L Tdi has a history of oil pump failure and it would be useful to know how many miles your car has covered before this fault occurred.
    There is a company called Powermax in Ireland that sell a fix to this problem if its the balance shaft drive to the oil pump that has failed on your car.

    Won't be balance shaft/oil pump. It's yellow warning light which is oil level

    It will be the sensor on the bottom of the sump most likely. Had the same issue with mine a few months back
    That's if it's the amber light

    Why would leaving the bonnet open for the said 30 seconds work ?

    oil light

    Cos the bonnet switch is the reset button basically. To reset oil light after filling car has to have realised bonnet has been opened.
