For the oil light I would immediately start with a manual oil pressure test. You do not want to run the engine if the pressure is low. This will tell us if its just a sensor going out. ON the 3.8 liter the pressure spec is 18.77 psi at 1000 rpms.

Here is your headlight diagram. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/klights.pdf

Do you have a volt/ohm meter to check the headlight dimmer switch and a scan tool to check the IPM and FAM modules?
