AnswerIf the engine is idling very low - oil pump may not generate enough pressure, causing light to come on. Make sure you have adequate oil, and that idle speed is correct. If this does not correct, possibly oil pump screen dirty

It could also be the oil sensor is bad or leaking. This happened in my 1996 Chevy Corsica. I thought it was the oil pump, but it turned out to be just the sensor that needed to be replaced.
