Evo 8, oil level warning light come on. Help

Help please guys

Evo 8 260 (350 BHP, 50K MILES)

OIL LEVEL WARNING LIGHT came on just after having a bit of a blast in 4th and 5th gear. I pulled over with light still on, gave the car a minute and turned it off, restarted the car and NO oil level light was showing. I gave the car light and heavy boost on the way home and still no oil light??
Car drives and boosts fine.

The light was not the red oil warning light it was the orange light ( an oil can with a wave/liquid/ Squiggle below)

Car fully serviced 250 miles ago, new oil etc, oil is 2mm above the top notch on dipstick as always.

Any ideas. Thanks

Does it flicker also?

It's not oil level-My Airtrek did it occasionally, it's the oil pressure sensor, cheap to replace think I paid around 10 quid for a "japanparts" one

No it never flickered, It came on as a solid light, I pulled over turned car off for 10 secs, restarted it and there was no light? I started driving and it never came back on even after boost. It's just got me wondering if it could be oil pressure . Regards

I didn't know it was for both but due to the facts that you've checked your oil level, restarted with no light and its a fairly common problem, id put my money on it being the level/pressure sensor.

No need to pay through the nose at a dealer for one, get one off ebay.
