It could be that the oil pressure switch has failed and caused the oil lamp to come on,this is common and easy to fix.Initially though,check the oil level,and if low, top it up to max. You don't state what car or engine but the lamp means low oil pressure and a big bill if you continue to drive without investigation. Some cars when servicing is poor,will by-pass a blocking oil filter and trigger a warning,you may just need an oil and filter change?

What does a yellow oil light on a BMW mean?

Yellow is low oil level, whilst red denotes serious low oil pressure. Oil level sensors on BMWs are known to go faulty especially on E46s. If the yellow light comes on momentarily for about 15 seconds and goes out, this could be a faulty oil level sensor if the oil dipstick reads full.

What does it mean when my 1991 Acura Legend Yellow Service Light comes on?

It means that it is time for an oil change. I just found that out. Usually when you get an oil change from a professional place they reset the light for you. If you do the oil change yourself, then you must reset that light yourself. Its easy, under the maintenance required light is a hole, I though it looked like an alarm sensor but I was wrong. That's were you stick your key in the hole and the light changes from Yellow to Red then Green. Green represents, you have complied and the car can go 3000 miles, until the light changes Yellow. Yellow represents (Warning) it is time for an oil change. If you don't change the oil and continue to drive another 1500 miles the light changes from Yellow to Red.Meaning (Danger) now it is def time to change the oil.
