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.

I suspect that because your car is 13 years old it has high mileage. That would cause this because things are starting to wear out. You could try going to a heavier oil like a 15W-40 or 20W-50. The heavier oil will build pressure and will lubricate better because it's thicker. It's time to start planning your next step because that won't last forever. You looking at an engine rebuild or replacement.
If the mileage is low you should get the oil pump checked out. It may be going. Hope this helps.

My 1999 pontiac grand am will idle low, but does not cut off.


Sounds like your oil pressure sensor may be faulty. Or your oil level is very low. Your engine should idle as low as 650 rpm without your light coming on.
