Sounds like a Passat 1.8. If the light is coming on, welcome to the world of 1.8l sludge. One solution= Engine flush at dealer and only use synthetic from then on. VW knows about this problem and the dealers have the repair instructions. This answer comes from experience.
Diagnose your vw for any small faults.
most likely the alternator is bad.
It comes on when the engine computer detects a malfunction and sets a code. You need to have the system checked for codes.
The light usually comes of when the pressure is right and equal in all tires
In comparision to other VW models the Volks wagen Passat is truly in a class of its own, its uinique style and affordability rank high above all others. I recommend you test drive one today.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
The oil light is an "oil pressure" indicator. it means you have lost oil pressure or the oil pressure sensor is bad
The light is NOT a low oil light. It is a low OIL PRESSURE light. You can drive it until the engine seizes. Of course internal engine damage will start to occur as soon as the light comes on and you have no oil pressure if you continue to drive the vehicle.
THERE IS A SENSOR ON THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKE PADS ITS TIME TO HAVE YOUR BRAKES SERVICED
The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle.Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a problem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions.The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle.Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a problem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions.
Your oil light comes on when the OIL PRESSURE is too low ( your engine oil LEVEL may be O.K. )
If you are referring to the oil light then you do not reset it. The oil light comes on when it detects low oil pressure. The light will go out when the problem is corrected. Can be the engine is low of oil, does not have sufficient pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit it bad.
That means that your alternator is bad and the oil light can indicate something about you oil level or oil pressure
It means you have low oil pressure. Low oil pressure means you will destroy the engine if you keep running it with low pressure.
When the oil light comes on when a 2002 Ford Taurus is idling it means there may be a problem with the oil pressure that needs to be checked.
Not that I know of. The oil pressure light comes on at a very low pressure, but it will not shut the car off.
It is the sensor for the tire pressure. It comes on when the air pressure in one of your tires is low.
The check gauges light comes on when one of the gauges is out of its safe range. It could be the alternator over or under charging, oil pressure low, or the engine overheating.The check gauges light comes on when one of the gauges is out of its safe range. It could be the alternator over or under charging, oil pressure low, or the engine overheating.
It means low oil pressure or possibly no oil at all.
There really isn't a set answer for this.. the oil light comes on when there's inadequate oil pressure in the system. A cold engine will have higher oil pressure until it warms up and the oil gets thinner as it heats.
That light notifies you that one of the gauges is out of its normal parameter. Check the temp (overheating), the voltage (not charging) and the oil pressure gauge (low or no oil pressure).
No , just an engine oil pressure warning light that comes on if the oil pressure is too low
Low oil, low oil pressure, failed oil pressure sensor.
The Volkswagen comes from Germany.
You need to replace the oil sending unit.
