the oil light is there to show low oil pressure (sub 5psi) and unless the sensor is faulty then its very damaging to the engine to drive along with the engien like this as low pressure will destroy the engine beyond economical repair

if its now dropped its water and no longer cranks as well then I'm sorry to say that it sounds like a new unit will be required
