That is a low oil pressure warning. Changing the oil will have no effect on this unless the oil was so old it turned into water. You need to have the oil pressure checked. It may just be the pressure sending unit is bad. But if in fact the pressure is low or nonexistent you very well may be causing grave internal engine damage by running the engine.
