When the oil reaches below specified sensor level, in the reservoir the light turns ON. Based on the explanation, car is burning lot of oil during the driving which results in oil loss. You should not add more oil in the engine than the level specified on the dipstick. Check the oil level in morning when is car is resting [engine turned off] on a level surface. Make sure that the dipstick is going down to the correct base. Use correct viscosity of oil recommended by the manufacturer with SAE logo on the oil container to minimize oil consumption and preserve engine life.
