Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help with this today.I apologize for any delay.

If this is the low oil level light this can be due to a fault with the oil level sensor which is usually installed in the engine oil pan itself.I have seen this sensor fail commonly in the past before with it needing replaced as it sticks and sends a false reading causing this fault.

If this is an engine oil pressure light and the oil pressure is normal and no engine noises are heard this is a fault that is usually caused by a faulty oil pressure sender with the oil pressure sender itself needing replaced.

These are the two most common causes for this issue here.
