A little overdue for the first oil change? I'm assuming you mean the first time you changed the oil "YOURSELF" was at 69,980km? You've had the dealer or a shop change it at least every 7k miles or 11k km?
If you've really waited to 70k km to change the oil for the first time in your motor, it might NOT be the oil pressure switch, that may be the actual oil pressure in your motor.
I agree with Robby, likely a coincidence, if this is your first switch to synthetic, maybe that was a change that tipped a sensor going bad over to malfunction. Regardless, its because the sensor is bad NOT the oil.
Whats this "jobber" filter you speak? I don't see how an oil filter would ruin a sensor, BUT, some of the crappy orange frams can create low oil pressure on engine starts.
