Oil light on, off, on, off, ding, ding, ding, ding

I feel like Hector Salamanca is in the passenger seat! It's driving me nuts.

Started yesterday, every time I come to a stop "ding" red oil light comes on. If I give gas to start moving it goes off. Come to a stop, "ding" on. Begin driving... well, you get the point.

It's a 2005 5.7 with 122222 miles on it. I checked the oil and it's on the lower end of the "safe" zone. Drives without hesitation and doesn't sound like anything is really wrong.

I did a brief search and found talk about some oil sensor. Can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Just do an oil change and disconnect the ground cable for 20 mins, and see what happens. If you dont want to do an oil change just disconnect ground for 20 mins.

Sounds like the oil pressure switch - but worth to have it checked out.

Ordered an Oil Pressure Switch from RockAuto. I'll post an update when I throw it in.
