Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.
Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.

SOURCE: Oil pressure light on at idle
Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

I had a similar problem with my Saab, stalled at red lights when idling,
As suggested by Greg I suspected the IAC and was just about going to the repair shop and have the ECU codes pulled.
Anyway, I decided it could be a good idea to check the engine air filter first. It turned out to be rather dirty so I changed it, This solved the problem in my case, the car has worked perfectly ever since.
Sometimes it can be very simple!

First thing to do is to make sure you are using the correct weight oil for your vehicle which is 5w30. Make sure you are using a quality filter such as Mopar, Purolator, or Wix. If that is the case then replace the oil pressure sensor. If the problem is still there have an oil pressure test run on the system. If the oil pressure is low at idle then you will need to remove the oil pan and find out why. Could be the oil pump screen is clogged or the oil pump needs replacing. You need to stop driving this vehicle until this problem is solved or serious engine damage could occur.
