Could be something simple like a bad oil pressure regulator spring to a bad oil filter? A bad oil pump it would be on all the time. And check for a clogged oil pick-up tube too in your pan. JIMZ

No James you are correct for oil pressure but this is oil level, read the codes on the dash panel to See if the oil level sensor is damaged, there should be a code and check if the oil level is correct. Also if there is sludge in the crankcase that could cause a false reading, check that also.
