    Mine came on on my TDI every now and then as someone had put the oil filter in the wrong way round lol. But you can't do that on the petrols. Do you park on a hill?

    it could be. Sometimes faults can cause completely unrelated warning lights to come on i.e on the TDi if your brake light switch is broken the glow plug light flashes.

    Have you had it scanned?

    Could be a faulty oil level sensor. The sensor is in the bottom of the sump.
