    I'm getting this error stored on the instruments part of VCDS -

    00562 -Sensor for Oil Level/Temperature (G266)
    30-10 - Open or Short to Plus - Intermittent

    The oil warning light comes on after 5 mins or so of driving and then goes off (comes on) every minute or so. There's plenty of oil in the sump, I've checked the connector for the sensor and it seems ok.

    I don't know if the car always had this problem as I bought it as a non runner.

    Any suggestions? Googled it and there's not a lot come up.

    Thanks

    Andrew@A.L.D May add NOS to 600+bhp?

    Easiest thing to do is change the sensor as there not much
