Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's possible that you could have a wiring issue but it's more likely that there is an actual pressure issue, especially if this happened as a result of replacing the oil filter. I've seen countless cases of poor quality oil filters causing enough pressure drop to turn the oil light on. I would recommend replacing the oil filter with a factory part and I believe that will take care of the issue, provided replacing the filter is truly what caused the problem to start.
