Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

You most likely have two separate issues.

The oil light will come on when pressure is low, either due to an internal engine issue, lack of oil, or an issue with the oil sender. It's possible that pressure is fine and the light is coming on when it shouldn't.

Have you checked the oil level?

Are there any abnormal noise from the engine?

Have you checked for fault codes in the engine controller?

Tanks for the information. No, I have not checked the oil level, but, will do that today. The engine is NOT making any strange noises...the engine sounds normal and the last time I drove the car, the engine was working fine.

The oil level should be checked before running the engine again. If pressure is actually low then engine damage is occurring. If the level is good and you don't her any abnormal noise then odds are the sender is the issue.
