may be the oil cap was a little loose ,or just laying there ????? if so the engine light
may have a stored code for low oil pressure ......hook it up to a scan tool and see what it tells u

It's hard to predict what the code is that caused the engine light to come on. You'll have to use a code reader for that. However, I'd go back to the dealership and mention your issue. It seems like maybe you should have paid a few hundred to have a mechanic check it out before purchasing it.
