If you replaced two of them then you take a look at the two you took out and see why they are broken. Are they broken?

Sometimes if you drain your oil for too long the oil pump could lose its 'prime' . This manifests as a persistent low oil pressure
light after an oil change.
You could try to prime it by pressurising the crank case with compressed air.
