oil light

past 2 days oil light is coming on after i drive about 11 miles, then it comes on when i hit the brakes. Is my oil pump letting go or the sending switch? how
can i test for either problem?? 1997 Intrepid.

You need to get a shop to hook up a mechanical gauge directly to the engine, or you can get a mechanical gauge yourself/ hook everything up but do not mount it to your dash, just lay it on the floor. This will give you an exact oil pressure.

Did you check your oil level at the dipstick?
It sounds low
If it's good then you'll need that gauge to check actual pressure
