Question about 2001 Dodge Neon
Pull the connector off the oil sending unit and look to see if there is any oil in the connector and see if any is in the sending unit were the connector plug into it. If there is replace the sending unit. It should be dry and free of oil. Also go to the parts store and get something called brake cleaner to clean the oil out of the connector.

If your oil light comes on after the engine is warm at an idle. Then goes out upon accelerating, the problem is probably the oil pressure censor. Very common for this car as they are set at 5psi and at idle your oil pump is only building 4psi. As long as you hear no knocking sounds at idle you are safe for now. Just a combination of wear in the bearings and oil pump. I would upgrade to a better oil, 10w40 or 20w50. A full synthetic oil wouldn't hurt.
