05 passat oil level light comes on after several hours of driving but level is full
It could be your oil level sensor or the electrical connection to it that is tripping the light to come on.
Replace the level sensor
Dealer found someone put silicone sealant on sensor , it began to break down and restrict oil flow in the oil pump pickup. Cleaned out and all is good now.
