Hi there , i would say that you should replace the oil pressure sensor as well , the old one would be well soaked in oil and wont sent pressure signal to can-bus , so light will stay on until it is replaced.

My Dodge Caravan had been idling low and the oil light/alarm will sound. The engine has been replaced, the fuel pump and many other sensors. The light still comes and the van is still idling very low. It almost smells like it is flooding however it stays running. We have been told that the fuel pressure regulator is in the fuel pump that we just replaced so it shouldn't be that. Someone else mentioned reseting the computer. How do we do that? Are there fuses we can pull to reset something? Thank

I have an Audi A4 Wagon (2006). My car was taken in when the oil pressure light kept coming on. The repair shop recommended that I replace the oil pump (very expensive). That didn't fix the problem. I later found it was the CVV and have since repaired that. Would it have been dangerous for me/my car to go with this unfixed? I am seeking some sort of resolution here, as I believe my car was misdiagnosed, and I was charged an egregious amount to replace the oil pump when that was not the problem.


The only thing it would have done is run rough. And get worse as you went, but it would have taken time. I don't know what you are going to do about the oil pump, but they never go bad, I have never replaced one, I would have been looking else where ... 2006 Audi A4
