Shop changed air filter, gas filter and did Induction system cleaning and I still have problem? Thanks

I have a 98 VW nonturbo that is having an oil light bliking. It takes about 10 mins of driving for it to start. I have replaced both sensors/sending units and I have had the oil pan dropped and inspected. The engine is clean and the tube is clean and sludge free. No knocking noises etc but the car does die sometimes.. Should I try an oil pump? This may be the last VW I ever buy.


Sometimes on my 2001 aztec, the alarm will go off on its own, start/stop, start./stop; and one time just kept going...one long beep until we unplugged the horn fuse. A lot of times also, after we park it, it makes this loud buzzing noise for a few minutes and the lights stay on too. Eventually will go off after 10-15 mins. or so. Sounds electrical to me. Any ideas about these problems??? Alterntor? We just replaced the battery a couple of months ago, but it's still doing the same stuff.
