Did you top off the oil level?
Is the red oil light only on at idle, or at any time when the engine is running?
If the red oil light is staying on, there is not enough oil pressure and engine damage can occur if you keep running the engine. The vehicle should not be driven, it must be towed to your mechanic. Oil pump may have failed due to low oil level, hopefully no further damage has occured. The oil pressure sensor is connected to the computer, so the computer will shut down the fuel pump (and engine) when low oil pressure is indicated.
