Having problems with your 1996 Volkswagen GTI ?
Golf GTI unused for 1 month ,starter motor problems. I had the starter motor fixed and on the foist run out @ 30 miles the oil light started flashing. I hade checked the oil levels before I had left and it was on max. I put in l litre of Oil to be on the safe side yet on our return jounre the light came on again, intermittently and for different periiods of time, The car feels fine when driving. Waht could be causing the warning light. I have lost my manual.
First don't overfill sump it can do as much damage as low oil. The problem could be a defective sender unit or a short along the cable whch carries that signal. The worst it can be is worn engine parts in which case you should take it to a workshop. regards Johngee
