Don't know the specifics of these engines, although we own a PT, and did, in the past own a Sebring conv. (never again). But, in general sounds like a weak oil pump, bad pump seal or clogged oil system somewhere blocking flow. In any case you oil light is indicating a condition of not enough oil pressure, not good whatever the root cause.
