It may be an actual pressure problem or a bad sensor. Easiest to replace the sensor to check. Use only Genuine Acura part. Aftermarket sensors are usually third rate junk.

After running some BG EPR pn109 thru my engine, at 90,000 miles I starting getting the "check oil level" alarm. This is a very good engine cleaner.

Replacing the oil level sensor in a 10 minute job.
Un-clipping the 2 plugs (one that is in the way and the actual oil level sensor plug) is the most time consuming.
I believe that I used a 24mm closed end wrench, from under the mdx. I move the sensor 1/8" at a time and re positioned the wrench. I did this 6 times, before I could unscrew the sensor, by hand.
If you note the plug's angle, before you start wrenching, it will help, because the plug wires are short and don't twist easily.

I use the BG pn109 and am happy with its level of engine cleaning, but I know it may clog the oil level sensor. I'll put the old sensor back, when I run another can of the pn 109, then put the newer sensor back.
