1.4 TDI. When the engine is cold I turn the ignition, start the engine and the amber oil warning light is flashing 4 0r 5 times then go's out. This has only started happening. I changed the oil & filter and also went through the sequnce to turn the service light off. Amber light still flashing. Only happens when engine is cold not when it has been run for a few seconds.

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge if its within specs-could be the oil pressure switch acting up
