Could be a mechanical lifter malfunction if you continue to drive that way eventually you will wear a flat spot in the cam,which costs more money to fix take my advise hace it checked at a shop they can pin point the lifter and change the one its only worth changing the one its a lot cheaper and on a 2005 you should be will be around 250.00 to 380.00 im guessing

Sounds like a failing engine.
Assuming the engine is full of oil, could be a weak oil pump or worn bearings.

hydraulic tappets but without a listen i couldnt be sure mif it is the tappets then put a half litre of diesel and three good squirts of fairy washing up liquid into the engine oil,use car as normal for a day or two and as the noise subsides change the oil and filter ,then make sure you change the oil every 6000 and a oil filter every third oil change and they shouldnt clag up again ,lack of regular oil changes causes this problem ,when changing the oil use the cheapest diesel/petrol oil you can buy do not use the expensive stuff with a long life or so they say as its a waste of money.even a mono grade of a straight 30 is plenty good enough

You have a broken oil pump. The light indicates loss of oil pressure. You have plenty of oil, but no oil pressure. Continued driving will shorten the life of engine dramtically or can wreck the engine completely in a short time. You need to take it to a mechanic asap, unless you plan on tackling it yourself. in which case you should re-post for help with that, or search Google for instructions.

Sorry, and good luck.

Hi i have just developed a rattle in the top end of my 03 crossfire ,is it cam / tappets issue etc?

70% of engine rattles in new cars are of because the engine has very minimum oil, you'll find if it has the correct amount of oil in it it will not rattle, cams dont tend to rattle, and newer cars dont use tappets now :) there hydraulic lifters.

if it does rattle, and its annoying you more than anything, and you just want to stop the rattle and not botherd about finding the actual problem them simply put thicker oil in.

but im sure you will find if it doesnt have enough oil in the car, and you fill it to maximum on the dip stick, it will stop the rattle.

Rattling sound after adding one quart of synthetic oil ,crankcase

oil shouldn't cause this symptom. (syn. oil and reg. oil - their is only a 1 percent difference between them) a rattle noise could be a valve rocker arm OR (the rattle i had) the catylitic converter. the honey comb stuff broke up into pieces inside.
