Too much oil in your car will not cause it to throw a rod. Too much oil in the engine will create a higher than normal engine pressure and can cause the engine seals to fail.

Will too much oil make your engine light come on?

Too much oil can be stirred up by the crankshaft. This whips and airiates it. Oil with air bubbles can still be sucked up by the oil pump, but where air bubbles are, oil isn't thus... no lubrication. This will also cause the oil pressure sensor to not see the constant pressure required and will throw on the light.
