I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

would be best to have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to be sure you have oil pressure.
hopefully you just have a bad oil pressure switch this is located on oil filter adapter rt above filter

SOURCE: Dip stick reading
The design of an oil pressure sensor must be tougher than rocket science; the failure rate is awful high for the simple task it performs.
This is a common failure and they are generally not terribly expensive to replace. They are supposed to make contact if the pressure falls below ~ 4 PSI, a level that pretty much tells you to STOP and add oil because at that pressure, there could already be some damage to bearing surfaces. The typical range is ~ 30-60 PSI for proper lubrication and (oil) cooling without blowing gaskets sealing the oil channels.
As you wrote, the engine isn't rattling; just replace the sensor.

Your transmission is sealed and has no dip stick, checking the fluid level properly involves using a factory scan tool.

SOURCE: oil light on when oil is full
Inspect the Oil Pressure Switch to see any loose connection, if you don't see any loose connection. First, replace the Oil Pressure Switch and check the Oil Pressure Warning Light still stay ON.
If the Oil Pressure Warning Light still ON, after you replaced the Oil Pressure Switch. Well , bad Oil Pump.
hope this can help, Good luck.
