If I turn off the engine and restart light does not stay on...
Is this just a factor of the cold engine start, or possibly the start of something more serious?
You may have a oil filter that the check valve isnt holding and your getting alot of drain back so it takes a few seconds to refill. If the light doesnt go out with out restarting it sounds electrical since it will go out after a restart. If you dont have oil pressure it would never go out. To be sure you could hook up a manual gauge

What year is your Durango and which engine do you have? My 04 Hemi had the same issue. When cold, the oil light would stay on for the first start of the day and then off from the 2nd start on.
Got the new oil sender from Autozone and it was a quick and easy install. Gotta say though that I had not had the D very long, and the first time it stayed on my heart skipped.
I knew everything was good to go though as I did not hear that sickening sound of valve train rattle.

Light will go off if I restart. Only happens when the weather gets cold.
I'll replace the sending unit this weekend...
Replaced the oil sending unit over the weekend. Monday morning and no oil light on first start.
Thanks to all...
