I have gotten the oil pressure light and have proceeded to change oil, oil filter, oil pressure sensor and cleaned the oil pan and the oil pump, I still Get the oil pressure warning and when I first got it the car hasn’t worked. It wont start but you can hear the engine trying to start. I am going to measure the oil pressure while trying to start it, if there is pressure or not, what may be wrong?

What car are you working on? Often when you have an extended crank, the oil pressure light will come on after a while. That's normal.

It’s a Volkswagen golf plus 1.9 TDI 2005, checked the oil pressure and it’s none
There's no oil pressure at all? Did you replace the oil pump, it just clean it and look at it? I assume you got it with no oil pressure, from what you said? Where are you measuring oil pressure?

Manually measure oli pressure with one of the thingies with the needed in them measuring bar/psi, while trying to turn on the engine and the needle didnt move at all, cleaned the oil pump nozzle thing. Did not replace the pump.
