Default Please help 2001 S4

I had to replace the Aux water pump because it was leaking, I also had to replace the PCV spider hose because it was brittle. now that i put it all back together the oil can on the dash is on. I changed the oil and the level is fine. I am thinking I messed up a sensor but not sure which one is which. can someone please tell me where and what sensor it is.

Its by the oil filter housing. Remove the oil pressure switch and hook up a manual gauge and make sure your car has correct oil pressure.

Which oil can? Red or yellow? Red is the pressure sensor mentioned above. Yellow is the level sensor which is located in the bottom of the oil pan. Most likely you've dislodged a wire causing this issue but you could just be unlucky and have had a sensor failure. It's unlikely you have developed a sudden oil pressure issue.
