Faulty Oil Pressure Switch?

Post by ABN2 »

Just brought a 2020 1.0 Tsi 95 Match 5Dr Dsg. My first Volkswagen so still learning about them.

All my other cars, admittedly much older and less sophisticated, when you turned the ignition on the oil pressure warning light would come on and only go off once the engine had started.

When I turn the ignition on in the Polo with the engine not running there is no oil pressure warning light showing.
Is this normal? or indicative that the oil pressure switch is faulty i.e. showing that there is oil pressure even when there is none?

When turning the contact to acc, there will be a lot of checklight on.
When the car checks everything they will extinguish.

Only lights on should be:

Red:
Dynamo
Seatbelt(s)(when not strapped in)
Handbrake (when applied)

Yellow:
Check engine light

Green:
Press brake (when you have automatic gearbox)

In your infotainment you can look under CAR if there are any faults or problems.
When it says save yourney there are no problems

After starting the car only

Red:

Seatbelt(s) (when not strapped in)
Handbrake (when applied)

Thank you for that detailed reply.
Must admit that I’m a bit old school and will miss that light. Gave me a sense of reassurance that all was well when it turned off as soon as the engine fired up.
