Alright mate, could'nt tell you where the pump is, but that light could just be part of the inspection sequence?
Read this:

I could be wrong.
Hope it helps.

I would have thought its the oil pressure switch and not the pump.

Send a message via Yahoo to tarlac
give it an oil and oil filter change just in case. Had same problem and turned out to be a faulty oil pressure switch. easily replaced.
