Default Oil sensor turns on and off

Hello! I just got a full oil change and diagnostic done on my 05 A4 Quattro 1.8, and while driving the oil sensor turns on for a few minutes, then off again, then on again...so on and so forth. I checked the oil and coolant levels, all looks good. Do I just need a sensor reset, and if so, do I have to go to an Audi dealership? Thanks!

Can't reset a sensor. Is it the red or yellow warning?

The is associated with oil level. If you have manually checked your oil, then you simply have to replace the sensor. Would wait until next time you change oil if you can stand the light coming on and off.
