The oil light keeps flashing on and off. Sometimes it's not on at all then sometimes it flashes on when I'm coming to a stop and goes straight off again when I pull off. It happens if i roll to a stop or if i stop quickly so i dont think its the sensor. It also comes on when in reverse. Oil level is fine and appears to be running fine.
Many thanks
Steph

If oil level is o.k ,does sound like a faulty sensor .Could check wiring to sensor .

Try bridging the wiring if that cures the issue then it,s the sensor.

in my old golf when cornering mine used to come on and off... aparently due to G draging the oil over to 1 side of the engine. on the straight it never did it so it made sence to me ??
