Oil light flickers on and off but oil levels are fine?

I have had my 98 Prelude for about two weeks. Never drove it fast or hard. About 3 days ago I hit it a bit against my cousins TSX. about 5 minutes after the oil light flickered on and I immediately parked the car and checked the oil (fine).

It hasn't come on since. Well yesterday I went to pick up my cousin from work about 30 min. away and it was fine the entire time on the highway until I pulled into the parking lot it started flickering. Again I checked the oil (fine).

As soon as I pull out of the parking lot it's gone. But when I get to my house it starts flickering again. Then I noticed if I give it some gas it goes away. I'm thinking faulty sensor or bad connection. Any ideas?

If I do regular city driving it wont come on at all. Any spirited driving BAM oil light!

Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly! remember it's not only the car that can be recalled by it's maker!
