You either need to add oil after checking to make sure you it because the oil light means that you are low on oil. if adding oil is not needed then the sensor is bad and you will need to replace it.

I'm guessing you mean 1000 so make sure you have oil first off then have it changed if you are due for it. After that you need to have the pressure switch checked, and or a mechanical test of your oil pressure

0il light comes on when car is in idle..2005 nissan altima


If the oil level is low, or the oil pump is worn out, this can happen. It indicates a dropping of oil pressure either due to oil moving forward away from the sump (low oil), or reduction of pressure due to lower rpms (worn out pump).

Oil pressure light


this sounds like you may have a bad oil pressure sensor.if there is no noise when the light comes on that maybe all it is.however have the oil pressure checked just in case it is low at low rpms.i`m not sure as where the sensor is located but you might find out at a auto parts store or the shop that you deal with.some of these sensor need a special socket to replace.something you yourself would use only once so you mays as well have shop that checks the pressure replace the sensor.

Oil light flickers at red light


If the oil warning light comes on, it means the oil pressure switch-sensor is faulty or your oil pressure really is dropping below 5 psi.
You would need to replace the sensor or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to figure out the issue.

My oil light comes on when car idles below 1000 rpms mazda mpv 2003


Your motor oil level is low.
The oil light indicates low oil pressure - at higher RPMs the oil sending unit (oil pump) can create
a little oil pressure, but at lower RPMs it fails to keep up.
If the oil level is good, then the oil sending unit itself is going bad.

your oil sensor comes on at less than ten psi, you may have internal engine damage how many miles on engine, any gum up inside engine, you can try to put on a high pressure high volume melling oil pump to try to help for the time being, but you may need to have it torn and repaired.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Oil Light at Low RPMS.


could be the oil pump, but before you get to that, whens the last time you had you oil changed? is it the right type? was the filter changed to? if the oil is to thick for your engine, the pump could be having a problem pushing it. If its dirty, same thing applies. Next time you change your oil, be sure to use a full synthetic. its a superior oil all around.
