Have someone check the fan switch and fan relay, you can't let this go, if your engine gets too hot you can kill it. They both need to be tested to see which one isn't working right. Your model may have an oil life system telling you it's time to change the oil, mostly the low oil light comes on when the cars oil level is low. Make sure your oil is full get the temp problem looked at first

Thank You that is very helpful.
