Oil pressure and "idiot" light issue.

Hello all, when I run my buggy at idle my "idiot" light comes on but very dim, if I give it gas it gets brighter, the oil pressure is very good, but the light keeps coming on, any ideas why this would happen? Also my oil temp gauge just sits at 100, although I just got this buggy and I am just going through it now, and I have not run int longer that 10 minutes or so, so maybe just not long enough to warm the oil. The light is what is concerning me, If I look in my oil sump I can see the oil being pulled out of it when I give it gas, so it seems to be circulating ok.
