The oil light is a measurement of the oil pressure inside the the motor. It is not an indicator of how much oil is in the engine, and it is not an indicator of oil in the wrong place inside the engine. There is an oil pump inside the oil pan which pumps oil under pressure to the moving parts as they turn. The oil travels to the main bearings first and to the valve train last. When the oil light comes on it means that either the sending unit is bad or that that there is low oil pressure. When there is low oil pressure, then the moving parts are not being lubricated to the extent that the engineers intended. If the engine does not get oil to the moving parts - IT WILL DESTROY ITSELF.

Low oil pressure cause

well after you turn it off unscrew the oil cap and look to see if the lifters are freshly wet plus my 96 850 turbo burns oil like crazy, i check it every saturday and always need to add at least half quart depending on how much i drove you would be surprised. so it might be low its not a bad thing for them to burn oil as long as you keep it full, i use valvoline high milege 10-30 oil all year. if its full and oiled then it may be a faulty reading

Oil light keeps going off

Do you mean the oil light keeps coming on ?
If it is the oil pressure warning light, and the engine oil level is full, the sending unit could be faulty.

I have a 97 supercharged the oil light keep comin stay on while Im driven the oil is full

The oil light is for low oil pressure, not low oil.
You need to have someone check the actual oil pressure with a mechanical gauge or change the oil pressure switch and see it the light still comes on.

The oil pressure light keeps flashing in my 1990 Volswagen Cabrio

Either the engine oil pump is worn, or the engine oil filter is clogged.
This happened on my 1997 Cadillac Deville. After changing the oil and filter, and putting the proper viscosity oil in, the problem immediately ceased.

Good luck on this one.

Press odometer reset/adjustment shaft in, hold in and turn key to run position. Keep holding in the reset shaft in for about 30 seconds. release shaft. turn key off. restart car. Service Light should go off in about 5 seconds.
