Oil is full and looks pretty good. Thinking its my oil pressure sensor.

I just got an oil change 2 days ago,its no oil leaks or anything because i had it checked when getting my oil changed. However when coming to a complete stop my oil light comes on and want go off until i shut the car down, what could that be?

OP, flashing means the oil pressure is good, but under tight cornering or other situations, the pressure would reach the turn-on threshold. Amani, that's low oil at idle. Get that checked.
