Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.
Is this the 3.8L or the 4.0L engine?
Does the light stay on constant? Or does it go off while the engine is under acceleration?
Ok. Very commonly, this is a problem with the Engine Oil Pressure Sensor (aka "Oil Pressure Switch"). It's located on the front, passenger's side of the engine (for an image location view, click here: http://goo.gl/5l6yfU). Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken, oil-soaked or damaged wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, I would strongly recommend that an "actual" oil pressure reading is taken with the use of a pressure tester gauge. But, if there are no unusual engine noise like ticking or knocking when the light is on, more commonly, it's the sensor itself.If you found this answer helpful, please help me by leaving a rating using the "stars" at the top of the page or click 'accept'.Rating or accepting my answer does not cost you extra.

No. The dash light you described above is for engine oil.
