Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the oil light is coming on it's because of low oil pressure, or the engine controller thinks that pressure is low when it is not.

This could be an actual engine issue or it could just be the oil pressure sending unit. oil sender issues aren't uncommon on the 2.4

If the oil level is correct then the first thing I would recommend is unplugging the oil sender and checking for oil in the connector. If there is oil in the connector then it will need to be cleaned and the sender replaced.

If there is no oil in the connector then an actual pressure gauge would need to be used to see if pressure was truly low or not to determine if the problem is the sender or an internal engine issue.
