Answer disconnecting the battery will turn off the light but won't fix the is more than likely low oil pressure at low rpm.usually a small leak around oil pressure sensorDisconnect your battery completely for about 15 minutes. Hook the cables back up, let the car idle for 2 or 3 minutes. This should take care of the problem. Basically you are just rebooting the computer on your car.
