As a starting point, definitely check the engine oil level. When was the last time that you did an oil and filter change?

Check the engine for oil sludge and any oil leaks.

Consider dropping the oil sump and checking/cleaning the oil pump pickup screen.

Not too sure, but there is a small chance, it just means the light ITself is faulty? Duno tho just my 2 cents

When does the oil light turn on? Is it when first turning the ignition or white driving?

The sensor for it is on the back side of the sump, it could be faulty.

Hey squalled the oil light as normal will turn on when the car is started then it goes away. The light turns on just randomly after driving for 20mins it will turn on then off after a few seconds later. Recently being stationary for a while at a set off lights it comes then goes never stays on long. Iv got no leaks and the oil is a tad bit over full witch shouldn't be a bad thing right?. My concern is that I did a flush and service recently might be my pick up might be clogged or Iv used a little bit to thin oil. The cars got 225k on the clock

I'd suggest checking the pickup and the sensor in the sump to be quite honest. If you look through where you would top up the oil, does it look golden or have brownish tinge from oil? Could possibly be just bad service history. 2ZZ's can easily go to well 300 000 so lets hope a faulty sensor for the best.

Not a problem mate. Let us know how it goes. 

Generally that tinge is normal, I've seen some go quite dark brown and it can result in sludging not only in the pick up but also OCV filters.
