Q: The oil light keeps coming on when we brake or park.

Oil light is on, we just got an oil change, the light only comes on when we break or are in park. What could be wrong? I did some research I rread it could be the oil pressure or a bad sending unit. Is the car safe to drive? The lights been blinking about 3 days nnow.

My car has an automatic transmission.
