Oil light flickering - Urgent help needed

1997 740i 117k miles

The car's oil light started flickering today after an engine wash yesterday. I am assuming that it is due to water in the sensor but I am a little worried. No symptoms showing of low oil pressure, or level. The oil light just dimmly comes on and flickers off never really appears to be all the way on like when you put the key in before starting.

Can someone show me a diagram of where to find the sensor that activates that light so that I can unplug it and dry it out to make sure that is the problem? I am heading on an 800mile trip tomorrow and need to make alternate plans if this is the begining of a larger problem.

Thank you all.
