Also having this stupid light come on. Scanned the car:

Address 17: Instruments Labels: 8E0-920-9xx-8E2.lbl
Part No: 8E0 920 900 H
Component: KOMBI+WEGFAHRS. RB4 D27
Coding: 03300
Shop #: WSC 93023
WAULC68E92A310715 AUZ6Z0B0079601

1 Fault Found:
00562 - Sensor for Oil Level/Temperature (G266)
30-00 - Open or Short to Plus

Actually due for an oil change in the next day or so as I approach 115 000 kms, so I will check out the wiring that's visible and go from there.

And take note that its been to two Audi dealerships…

Lesson learned, always check the small things before you start getting your hands dirty. Props to this site!!!
Thank You!! Fuse 5 on a 2008 A4. And the Oil Sensor warning light went out.
