Need to get a scanner to see what trouble codes are the ECU memory. Check engine light on dash is diagnosis with a scanner for this concern. More likely a sensor or sensors by the age of car are at the end of good performance.
It's pretty simple:
1. turn engine off.
2. Jack car up on jack stands so you can safely get underneath it.
Do not just jack it up. Cars fall off jacks all the time and kill people.
3. remove drain plug from bottom of engine.
4. catch oil as it comes out in a pan of some kind.
5. If you're also replacing the filter, remove old filter now, and put new one on.
6. replace and tighten oil drain plug
7. add correct amount of oil.
8. start engine, and check for leaks.
9. use dipstick to check that you have correct amount of oil in.
I would first check the fuse for the dash, since that should be simple and a cheap fix. If not, the light in the dash may need replacement. The final and most difficult possibility would be a fault in the wiring between the dash lights and the power source.
