Oil light comes on when the car is stopped or idle when warmed up. Goes off when accelerating. Oil is showing full. No leaking

I would have the oil pressure checked manually with a pressure gauge, and have the oil pressure sending unit checked. This could be because the oil needs to be changed as well you should use a heavier weight oil this should help.
