    Any engine noise? if not replace sender and recheck, if light still comes on you will need to check for worn bearing or a defective oil pump.

I had a similar problem on a 1999 Galant V6, oil level was ok.
I found out, that the problem was on the contact, oxidation between the contact and the cablejack.
Cleaning it helped in my case.

First,and most obvious is to check the oil level.If the oil has recently been changed,change the oil filter again just to eliminate any possible defective filter.If condtion still exists,a mechanical oil pressure test gauge can be hooked up to the engine and driven while monitoring the oil pressure.I use this procedure sometimes on automatic transmissions as a diagnostic tool.This test will identify if the problem is indeed a mechanical fault inside the engine,or a potential problem with the dash gauge,or sensor,or wiring.As a temporary solution,using a slightly thicker viscosity oil will help somewhat if a low pressure condition actually exists.
