    Hi , dont think it will be the bonnet switch , that's normally if your oil level light yellow one comes on. First thing is have you checked the oil level?, where did you get the work done? if its a garage , best get it back to them asap so the oil pressure can be checked manually, could be an oil pressure switch fault, did you have genuine parts fitted?

    Try a new switch if your're happy the pressure's ok. Be warned though, if it isn't ok you're living on borrowed time.

    Just to be sure get the pressure checked with a mechanical gauge, that will prove it for sure
