Most likely ignition switch has gone bad.  Don't need to worry about oil pressure light IF the motor is not running, but IF it IS running, shut down motor immediately until oil pressure can be verified with an external gauge.
good luck

Glow plug light dose nt cycle like it should.


This is caused by burnt out glow plugs, when the glow plugs fail it changes the resistance so the glow plug controller/timer doesn't cycle properly, it is the same as when a turn signal bulb burns out.

Mercedes class 200 cdi. when i start the car the glow plug lights stays on for couple of mins then goes of?????


This is normal, the glow plugs are building heat in the cylinders to help ignite the diesel. They should cycle off and on until the engine warms up.
