I have a 2012 VW Passat, I bought it as a salvage vehicle

Customer Question

I have a 2012 VW Passat, I bought it as a salvage vehicle needing a hood, windshield, radiator, condenser, radiator support, and LH headlight. No electrical wiring problems from the accident. I fixed it all and am noe driving it but the low oil pressure light comes on under certain conditions, like when I have the cruize control on and the right turn signal indicator stays on, if the headlights are not on, if I dont have my seat belt latched, I had a running light bulb out in the headlight so the indicator was on on the dash and it caused the low oil pressure light to be on, also under one of those conditions the low fuel light also comes on. what do these things have in common that would cause the oil pressure light, the low fuel light and the left turn signal to be on when they shouldnt be. there was a hole in the windshield and it sat outside all summer long enabling water to come in on the dash and fill in the passanger floor area. the carpet was very wet and i lifted it up and got it all out. I know there is a computer under the passanger seat but it seemed high enough not to get wet but maybe...Ideas? Thanks.

HI,

The only common denominator is the instrument cluster itself, which could have gotten wet from water going behind the dash. I would pull the cluster and check for any signs of water intrusion in the connectors or on back of cluster and replace if found. If just water at the connector, you can try drying it off and using some dielectric grease between the connector and the cluster. If the problem continues, then replace the cluster
