    Bought a 2006 (registration) or 2007 (VIN) 2.0 TDI GT BMN engine about 6 months ago.

    Took it in for the red oil light flashing after I put in a new oil pressure sensor. Light still stayed on.

    Red oil lamp / light - engine oil pressure too low - stop engine and check oil level

    I brought it to a VW Audi specialist and the mechanic changed out the oil pump, oil and filter After the first test drive (30 mins) oil light did not come on. Took it for a second test drive and light came back. He then changed oil pressure sensor changed to OEM and changed crankshaft sensor.

    Light is still on. He did a pressure check and pressure came back at correct readings. He tested witing and thinks it's a dash fault?

    Any thoughts?

    Did you get the oil strainer changed?

    Could it be the oil level sensor? I don't suppose they let you know of any error codes that came up on a scan did they? Or do you have access to VCDS to get a scan yourself?

    I believe he said he cleaned out the strainer with the pump, but not entirely sure as I did not do it myself. I'll call on monday to ask. My neighbor might have a scanner I can borrow.

    Do you know if there is more then one oil pressure sensor on this model? I'm thinking the MAP / boost pressure sensor could be throwing the signal just dont know how to check it without replacing it.

    There is also an oil quality sensor screwed to the bottom of the sump.
    I think you need to go to a recommended VAG specialist as they would know how to interpret any fault codes correctly, not just change out parts randomly.
