Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to determine if you need a oil pump. If the motor is not knocking or ticking, chances are you do not need a oil pump. Why do you want to do this???

I am not sure on your year car, but possibly you had the oil changed? The oil light would have to be reset. I suggest having the pcm checked for any codes, this would tell you if it is just an oil light reset, or something else. If worried about oil pressure, have it checked by a mechanical gauge. Oil pumps usually will last the life of the motor. Knocking or ticking is an indication of a motor getting worn out due to not having the oil changed regularly.

So ok, I am not for sure where that oil sensor is, may be down by the oil filter, may be in the back of the engine, behind the intake manifold. So the motor is not making any nose? I would scan it for codes as some may turn on the light also.

I am trying to help you. Getting no response, so here what I got. Yes start by changing the oil sender unit located down by the oil filter, It will have wire plugin on it. But also this is where you would check to see what your oil pressure is. A oil pressure gauge would screw into the oil sender hole, then run the car to see what the pressure is. If you don't have a pressure gauge to check, just try replacing the oil sending unit.
