Hello all. The Oil Light is glowing Amber continuously. The Oil level is correct and there are no Oil leaks. The car has only covered 65k.

It sounds like a faulty Oil Level Sender Unit to me but could it be something else?

Where is the Oil Level Sender Unit located and how easy or hard is it to change?

Thanks in advance.

they are normally attached to the oil pan by a couple of bolts and a gasket or o ring quite easy to get at in most cases once the bottom covers are off check the wires to the plug or the plug its self had a few vw and bmw where the harness has come adrift and chafed through
