Well the first thing to do would be to check the oil but im guessing you did that already so it could be a couple of things first as long as the oil pressure is fine it could be a faulty sensor most sensors plug into the bottom of the sump and can be pulled out and cleaned

second it could be the pump the light is on because the pump is not gettin the oil up into the block and the oil pressure is staying very low

best bet would be to take it to a shop.hope this helped

This will be a very costly lesson. An oil light will not ignored.
Hope you got lots of extra $$$$$$$$$$$$$ Sorry you didn't realize what would happen. Oil is the life blood of a motor driving with light on is an unforgivable sin.

Oil light on when oil is full


a loose connection WILL NOT cause flickering oil light unless your your oil is empty at the same time a connector is loose. This flickering is most likely caused by clogged oil ports or failing oil pump. When this happens there is insufficient oil running through the engine, causing the sensor to activate the light intermittedly. Have this checked immediately to prevent extensive engine damage. Hopefully this helps!!

Oil light stays on


You need to put the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor three times within five second to reset the oil life light.Some g.m.'s have a reset buttom in the fuse panel that needs to be pushed first and some don't.Check the owners manual under change oil for your specific year car.

Engine light on/Oil Gauge on stays on high


Any waranties left? Is oil full? Any noises from engine? Did you put a mechanical gauge on it and check "real" oil pressure? (I would not drive it 'till I was sure about actual oil pressure!!)
