    Was it the Oil pressure light? If it was then you should have stopped, the tapping from the engine could indeed be the oil pump on its last legs. Maybe you're suffering from the classic sludge problem?

    Mine flashes up when cornering hard sometimes, but only usually when it's getting a bit low. Try the dipstick when the engines cooled down and the oil has settled as you won't get an accurate reading when hot. If it was the pump the error would have reoccurred I would have thought.
