While driving to work this morning I noticed the oil
pressure light was on, but it was real dim. NO
buzzer or other warning lights. Any ideas?

I don't know why the light is dim, maybe a bad connection but don't drive the car with low oil pressure. Check the oil level and maybe go ahead and change the oil and filter. If it is still low you may have a worn engine or oil pump.

The light will be bright when I turn the key on. This is the only time this had happened.

The brightness of the light is not the real issue. The low oil pressure is.
