To new to have any schematics on the unit. But with oil light on, I assume you have no starter function, stater is not turning the engine, due to lockout from oil safety system. Machine thinks it has oil problem, so no start. With key on, unplug one oil sensor at a time to see if the oil light will go out, trying to isolate which sender is causing problem. Then check that system. You have a voltmeter that you can check battery voltage? If battery voltage is low, below 12 volts, you will get same result, no starter engagement.
