OIL PRESSURE LIGHT AND CAR STARTING THEN TURNING OFF.

2003 Volkswagen GLI • 6 cylinder FWD Manual • 150,000 miles

My VW 2003 GLI has recently had the oil pressure light blinking. I checked the dipstick and the oil level was fine. The issue is that my car will turn on for about 1 second then immediatly turn off. What's going on here?

Check the fuel pressure if it's within specs and are the injectors pulsing?

Oil pressure: Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, if normal replace the oil pressure switch. If abnormal could mean oil pump and/or engine bearing.
