    Default oil light on my dash

    Happy new year folks.

    every now and then the oil light (with lines under the oil can) comes up on my car - only when I go to switch it on.

    I have checked the oil level and its up to the third bar on the dipstick so this is fine, and it was only servced about 3k ago.

    If I pull the key out of the ignition and re insert it the oil can disappears.

    This happens every now and again and is starting to annoy me. I have read on the net that the Oil sensors can go on these engines regularly, so called my local VX dealer who told me it was the oil switch before I had even finished telling him what was wrong.

    Do you think it is the oil switch or the oil pressure sensor or something else?

    Any help appreciated

    Well that's what the chap at VX said more or less instantly. Common fault he told me so for £15 I will give it a change.
