    Thread: can i bypass oil sensor

    1. 11-29-2010 12:19 PM #1
      is there a way to disable or bypass the loud beep and dash light i get cause i have a bad oil temp/level sensor (01' a4 1.8tq) ? $108 sensor is pretty low on the list of things my car needs..

      I was told that my (2000 1.8t ATW) oil level sensor was a dual sensor that does temp and level. The AEB has temp that connects near the oil cooler and a level sensor in the oil pan. I'm not sure if the level sensors for both are identical but the AEB doesnt have temp sensor wires run there or if they're different sensors. Seems kind of silly to do it that way so I doubt it.

      thats what the dealer told me too, he looked mine up and said it was a dual sensor.. i need to find a pinout so i can trick it cause i dont care enough to spend $108 on the sensor.
