Your oil pump may be worn and not putting out the proper pressure
the viscosity of the oil may not be correct
the sensor may be faulty
there may be a blockage in the lubrication oil curcuit( try an engine flush)

BMW 320i E90 when I drive more than 50Km and press a brake pedal at a stop sign or robot the light for low oil pressure shows but when I release the brake it goes what can be the problem?

If this light comes on you need to check oil levels and top up if necessary. If the light still does not go out, chances are you need to replace the oil level sensor.

Oil light comes on when braking

Your oil pump is failing.... when your engine rpm drops (when stopping) the pump and engine rpm drop to idle..(light comes on). when you accelerate (rpm's increase) the pumps start working harder and the light goes off.... I am TRULY surprised the dealer(who did you see at the dealer???) did not know this,... THIS IS BASIC STUFF!! ... I mean 090 level mechanics...

Get the oil pump replaced immediately!!!!

My oil comes on when I down shift to come to a stop but goes off when foot on the gas. I also have a lifter making a noise 2001 ford escortzx2

check and change your oil, the light comes on when braking due to the sensor detecting a low amount, and goes off again when hitting the gas because the oil flows back towards the sensor,, check for the correct amount of oil in the system,, changing the oil and filter could clear the tapping lifter , if not a adjustment could repair it

I just changed my oil but the change engine oil light comes on?

Sometimes the system needs to register the new action taken. If you just changed it, give it a few driving miles and see if the light goes out. The sensor senses the carbon intake and trigger the sensor to check oil light.

Oil light comes on when brakes are applied. goes off when they are released

Sounds more like an electrical problem. Check for burned out brake light bulbs and low brake fluid which might be the actual problem being reported by the car. If that does not work, check your oil level, could be missing a quart. And if that is not the problem try unplugging the oil sensor unit and go for a test drive:if it does come on again this would confirm an electrical issue.

Oil light comes on when break then goes off

The oil light indicates that the engine's oil pressure has dropped below the minimum safe pressure. When the light goes out it suggests that pressure has been restored to a sufficient level for engine lubrication but this is nevertheless a bad sign.

I suspect that the oil level in the engine is too low and that the oil itself has greatly deteriorated and has not been changed for some time.

1. Check the oil level again, after the car has been standing for a few minutes, and make sure the engine oil level is at the maximum mark on the dip stick. If not then top it up.

2. Have the oil (and oil filter) changed in the car as soon as possible and ensure it is the correct spec viscosity oil for that engine .

3. Brake test the car to see if the oil light still comes on under braking.
If it recurs you need to have an oil pressure gauge hooked up to the engine (by an auto repair shop) to see what oil pressure is being achieved at various engine revs. If an independent gauge shows no problem with oil pressure then I would assume a faulty oil pressure sensor.
If the pressure gauge identifies a lower than normal oil pressure in the engine's lubrication system then the cause needs to be identified and fixed.

2004 Chev Epica - oil light comes when car comes to a stop

the oil light is coming on due to sensed low engine oil pressure, this is not a level issue unless u are about 3 quarts low, oil pressure indicators don't leave any computer codes, so who ever told u that is wrong, u need to test the oil pressure with a mechanical gage when the oil light is on, until U need to confirm that u don't have a real pressure issue here or you can burn out the engine bearings, if the pressure checks ok then rplace the oil pressure light sending unit in the engine.

2006 Dodge Durango Oil light comes on

It might be faulty oil pressure sensor or bad oil pump, but might be adressed to recent oil change. Sometimes oil get viscouse in winter and cause oil light to come on. For winter the recommended one is 5W-30
Oil light should come on for less then a second during starting the car. If it comes longer or when you push the brake it might be the sign of bad oil (sometimes), faulty oil pressure sensor (mosty), bad oil pump (often) or internal engine problem (very rare).
Good Luck
