Default OIL AT TEMP light flashing while driving the car


First time this happened, 2007 2.5i wagon with complete catless UEL system, 43K, 4eat.

First off I'll start by all regular maintenance done as should be.

Temp this evening was about 70 degrees, on my way to a local suby meet I go to every wed.

On the way home from work, the cruise starting blinking WITHOUT the cel light coming on, never saw this before without cel light on at the same time.

Car sat for about 4-5 hours before heading out to the meet, 5 minutes into driving, the OIL AT TEMP light starting flashing and continued to do so until I reached the meet, about 15 minutes later.

Oil level is fine, checked tranny fluid level the other day, was fine, color normal, no odd smell.

At the meet for 2+ hours, drove home for about 20 minutes, neither light came back on, care drove fine, no noticeable issues of any kind.

Any hints to why the oil at temp light came on and continued flashing? No problems I can see with the 4eat of any kind.

Did a quick google search and came up with:

"If the light comes on while the engine is running, it may indicate that the fluid temperature in the automatic transmission is too hot; avoid steep grades or stop-and-go traffic
If the light flashes after the engine starts, it may indicate that the control system is not working properly; service immediately"

Now my light was flashing while driving the car, it was not on solid.

Need some help here, never happened before, was driving normal like any other day this evening.
