Angry Oil pressure light is coming on car won't run

Hello everyone I am looking for some insite to a problem that just came up on our 2009 base pt . The oil light came on so i thought it needed oil , but after checking the oil it was full. the light will go off aftert the key is turned to the on position but will come back on after starting the engine. I got no fault codes and the check engine light is notg coming on. after about 5 to ten minute of starting and staopping the motor as I was trying to find the oil pressure switch the motor shuddered and then it would not sart up. I kinda of starts but the just shuts right down. There is no codes being logged? The motor will turn over . The motor has only 51000 miles on it . I am thinking its the worse oil pump has gone out or the timing belt has jumped or something. I disconnect the battry for about ten minutes but no change, ANY Ideas or is it off to the dealer for wopping repair price?????


HELP please

It's not supposed to do it but I've seen it first hand that the engine won't start and the oil light is on and changing the oil pressure switch got the car going again.

Can't hurt to change it.

Still no code? Is the erratic when it's at idle? Does it go away when you get going down the road? How about plug and wires? When were they last changed?
