Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Unless your Dodge is a very high mileage car, the pump is probably OK.
Much less reliable is the pressure sensor for the idiot light but it need not have failed, I have seen the orifice for the sensor actually clogged with gunk dense enough to disable them.
If you are very concerned, I would have a shop check the actual oil pressure but I think just buying the sensor and replacing it yourself would be my first move. On some engines, the sensor is in the block close to the oil filter and needs only a single lead to connect it. They aren't expensive, probably less cost than a 1/2 hour of shop time in any case.
If you can't find it, it might be a good time to buy a Haynes or Chilton manual for your van; you'll get your money's worth over time.
