Hi members, one question, does the 1.8T engines has an secondary oil sensor?
I have a 2001 vw beetle 1.8T that the light keep coming every 5 min.... I already replaced everything, oil pump, oil sensor ( the one on top of the oil filter)
I also unplugged the plug that goes to the sensor, start the engine, and it keeps doing the same, so i think there could be another one somewhere else.
If you can help me out with this would be great.

Search the forum here, the Beetle and the oil pressure light seems to also be triggered somehow by the coolant level in the expansion tank as well.

Also some of the replacement switches are not the proper pressure rating, you need to make sure you get a switch from an online VW dealer, many of the aftermarket switches are the wrong pressure rating.

Have you hooked up a gauge to verify pressure?
