    Do you mean the Oil level sensor?
    Common for them to go - mine just has.

    Carefully check the contacts connector and wiring loom. Or change the switch for another one. Or ask a garage to check if your oil pump is generating sufficient pressure. Since you have recently touched the wiring loom, I would suspect that first.
