I am losone the new Toyota moderator
The engine oil light is a DUH circuit comprised of a pressure switch that allows the light to come on if there is less than 7 lbs of oil pressure. The switch has a single wire with the switch usually located somewhere near the oil filter.
THERE IS NO RESET FOR THE OIL PRESSURE LIGHT.
If your oil pressue had been 7 pounds or less you would be like the ad I saw in the paper the other day-"-For sale old ford truck, no motor but sure tows easy."
Locate the sensor remove the wire and turn the key on and see what the light does. Ground the wire and see what the light does. One of the two tests should put out the light. If the light goes out, replace the pressure switch.
