Suggestion: Bad oil pressure sensor. Easy fix. . .
My oil light was intermittent as well so I decided to change my oil pressure sensor (approx $15 CDN) during an oil change to avoid a mess . .
* * NOTE: Special Tool - save yourself a whole lot of grief and get an "Oil Pressure Sensor Socket" from your local parts store. PartsSource or Canadian Tire will give you a socket set on loan if you have a credit card, just return it for full refund...you'll need this socket for peace of mind, otherwise you could chance it with one of your own sockets.
- Jack up vehicle and drain the oil
- remove passenger side front tire and inside wheel well cover
- you'll see the oil pressure sensor right in front of you; very close to belt pullies (some say you have to remove a tension pully, but I could not see why).
- Disconnect the wire clip (it's a combination clip...little red slider must be loosened before pulling the whole wire connection free....careful not to pull the little red clip out completely)
- Use your socket to remove the sensor
- replace with new sensor, reconnect wire, reinstall wheel well cover & wheel
**Don't forget to finish your oil change

This took my roughly 40-minutes start to finish.

Hope this helps somebody out there. Cheers
