When you press the brake pedal the brake master cylinder vacuum booster takes vacuum away from the engine and that slows the idle speed just enough to trigger the low pressure oil light. Pull the oil pressure sending unit out and hook up an oil pressure test gage, if the pressure is above 15 PSI hot engine idle in drive replace the oil pressure sending unit.

SOURCE: Shifting problems when hot
These kinds of problems are common on the dodge mini vans, I think you will need to overhaul the trans, it has an internal fluid leak, one other thing to check is the electrical connector to the trans, make sure it is tight and has no corrosion or fluid in it, a poor connector connection can also cause these kinds of issues hot.

SOURCE: I'll start my van (sometimes
Here is a fix...I had the same problem with the instrument cluster going dead intermittently. Pound your fist on the dash and wahlah, everything worked again. It would also register an engine code of 'invalid or incorrect information or lost data', something like that. What I found was a hairline crack in a solder connection on the cluster circuit board right at the harness plug connector. Mine happened to be the ground pin for the cluster. And what do I mean by 'hairline' crack? It takes a trained eye to find cracks in solder connections. Most people don't see them, because it is a circular microscopic crack surrounding the pin where it solders to the board. It it usually caused from heating and cooling, vibrations, and other element that attack and deteriorate solder. Very intermittent, and very hard to find. So instead, just simply resolder each of the connections to be sure another one won't fail in the near future.

look for a crack in the circuit board trace on the back of the instrument panel. sounds like its expanding with the heat.

Will it start with a boost? Have you had battery fully charged and load tested? Battery tested at a garage, or autoparts stores, are usually free.
