    Maybe a faulty switch?

    A pic might help.

    But there are 2 warning lights. Both of which should come on as a check light with the ignition.

    One for low oil pressure - pic of oil can with a drip coming from its nozzle.

    One for low oil level - as above, but also has a wavey line underneath.

    Ultimately, you should RTFM to get to know what all the warning lights are on the dash.

    That could be misleading for the non mechanically minded

    "I've put 10 litres of oil in my engine so far and it's still not reached the top of the dipstick yet. Just how much oil do I have to put in before it does?"
