how long you had it for and when was the last oil change? do you know what engine is in her? the 1.6 and 2ltr have massive bearings so prob should be fine but change the oil and see if the light comes on again. Theres prob gunk that causes a blockage somewhere in the oil galleries from time to time, not good for those who neglect oil intervals.

Was it the OIL light or the CHG light ? Not sure what the dash lights look like on a Homer.

OIL is, well, oil.

CHG is electrical issue, not charging, most likely alternator.
