Engine Oil Warming Lamp ON - Stop Engine Flashes on 1995 Cadillac DeVille

This problem began about 2 months ago. I checked the oil level and found that it was up to the max (but not over). Then I stopped the engine, let it cool off for a few, then started it again -- and, this time, no oil engine oil light came on. This stopped for maybe a month - then it started again this evening. HELP! What is the problem?

could be a bad oil pressure sensor

Is it the oil PRESSURE or oil LEVEL light? If that's one that has a level sensor (float?) it may be hanging up. How frequent are the oil changes?
