Hello, I'm Brandon - VW tech.

You should not use motor honey into the engine.

You should use full synethic 5W-40 oil. I recommend using Castrol or Mobil 1 brand.

The light comes on because it is not getting enough oil pressure. The motor honey is actually too think for this engine.

dump the old oil and replace it with the new 5W-40 engine oil.

The problem should be fix. Let me know if you have further question.

Please rate me positive for the prompt service, thank you!
