it's most likely the sensor (oil level and Temperature in one) or the wiring to it from the VMM

Heck mine keeps telling me it's time to change the oil every like 600-1000 miles

I find they start to give the low oil light when you ignore the change oil light. I've had the same thing you're describing after the change oil light is on for a while.
