I have a jeep 2007 with 85000 miles. Recetly purchased it from a dealer. What happens is the oil pressure light comes on occassionally. This happens after the jeep is turned off and then restarted while still warm. Such as when gassing up or a quick stop. If I turn off the jeep and then turn it back on the light turns off. I have checked the oil and it looks to be a the correct level, it is clean and recently changed. There is no noise associated with the light and the engine seems to be running well. Again this has only happened a few times and is not consistent. I am leaning towards a possible sensor issue.

agree with both but for sure #2
It could be the oil sending unit...or you may indeed have an oil pressure issue...kudos for you knowing WHEN it happens. But don't risk on "leaning" cause it could cost you $5,000! Anyway, have a shop you trust (or do it yourself with a $15 tester from harbor freight) check the oil pressure under the SAME condition you described and check the oil pressure that way...good oil pressure = bad sensor; bad oil pressure = oil pump issue.
