oil light came on!?

For starters I am asking for a friend. She just bought a 07 wk with 3x,xxx miles on it. I know super low. Anyways, about 20 minutes after purchasing it the oil light came on. She quickly pulled over and checked the oil and the oil level was fine. The light has not come on again and she has owned it for about 4 days. It just has the 6 cylinder in it. Any suggestions on what it may be? Thanks ahead of time.

Probably just the oil pressure sender.

I agree with this. If the Jeep is/was running fine with no noise and engine temp in the normal range it is likely just the sensor. You can check the pressure with a manual gauge just to ease your mind, just check the pressure after the truck is warmed up.

Since you just get her, I would just bring it back and raise hell, until they fixed it. I would also make them check the oil pressure just to be safe so they don't replace the sender unit just to do an easy fix.

Update. Well they bought it from an individual, so I'm pretty sure that they can not take it back, but I'm sure the previous owner knew of the problem. From what I heard, the other morning the oil and check engine light came on and when they looked under the hood there was oil all over the engine. I guess a gasket blew and spewed oil all over the place. It's been fixed, but have not spoke to them to see what the exact problem was. This sounds very unusual for a vehicle with such low miles.
