Default Oil level warning, enough oil

I just happened to purchase a 97 Toyota Hiace and run in to a small "problem". While driving suddenly the oil level sign went on (stayed on for 20s), then it turned off and the same thing happened some times during the trip. I have checked the oil level and theres plenty of oil in the motor and the previews owner had change the oils all ready.

Question is: Could it be the oil level sensor? It thats the case where is it located. I cant seem to find any online manuals for the car or some repair guides I could possibly use. (Don't know so much about the cars but willing to learn.)

Could it be because of the freezing temperatures. I was traveling far to the north where there was much colder.

If it's not the sensor could it be something else I need to worry? Any hints.

UPDATE: Noticed that the light turns off when I take off the throttele

Any hints are well come.

If you search around on the Super Custom Forum (mostly UK contributors) there are links to a free download for a fairly complete owner's manual. The timing belt procedure is in there. Which engine do you have? The entire manual is too large to email.
Cheers, Roman
