If the oil light is working and is off with engine running, then you have oil pressure. To determine how much pressure, you need a pressure Gage.

Why wont the oil light go out?

The reason your oil light stays might not be nothing major it might just need oil or an oil change. To be on the safe side, check the obvious things. Check the oil level. Make sure you have the right grade and new oil. Has the filter been changed recently? Check that the oil pressure switch is working, replace or substitute known good one. Temporarily, add a pressure gauge where the oil pressure switch is and check. Check wiring to switch, it may have come loose and touching the engine, or the cable shorted to earth. If all still points to no pressure, then you have a major problem. The oil pump has stopped working or there is massive wear on all bearings. Does the engine rattle?
