Might mean that you are nearly out of oil. Add necessary oil as to vehicle's specifications and the icon should go away. Oil change every 3,000 miles. Also check on the internet in Chrysler Pacifica oil problems just for your info. - Cached If icon re-appears, have you vehicle checked by a certified mechanic as you may have other issues. (sensor, PCV valve, etc.). Hope this solves your problem.

It means there is possibly low oil pressure!

The first thing you should do is check the oil. If it is full is the engine making any weird noises? If not you likely have a bad oil pressure sending unit.

If its low add some right away.

If the engine is making wierd noises shut it off and stop driving. There is probably no oil pressure. This could be a bad oil pump, worn out engine, sludge in the oil pan, etc.

What do dashboard lights mean

you meant warning lamps. right? not parking lamps.
every year they add more. my newer car has like 100.
each maker uses different lamps. (icons.)
making generic answers impossible ,except the obvious.
CEL , check engine light, or SES. service engine soon.
Oil lamp... low oil pressure do not run engine.
charge lamp, battery will die soon (go discharged and car stalls)

you lost the operators guide, all lamps are explained in every car made in the glove box manual.
get one.

or use this random page.

this is a grand attempt at the generic, its very good.

it means what the book says it means.
end story. also has the facts on this car.

Oil light on dashboard.

That means that your oil light is working correctly... that is actually your oil "pressure" light and if your engine is not running the sensor is telling the computer that there is not oil pressure. Once your engine is started then the light will go off

What does "service" light mean?

The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.

Well, I don't quite understand your problem, but we can deal with the lights:
You have a Low Oil Pressure indicator light which has a little icon on it that looks like a large oil can. It indicates that your engine is low on oil, and that if you drive very far with it like that, you will do severe damage to the engine.
You have a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) sometimes called a check engine light, which has a little icon on it that looks like an engine. It comes on to tell you that there is a problem with your emissions systems. It no doubt is also storing codes for the problem, if it is on, and you have to plug a OBDII code reader into you DTC socket somewhere under your dashboard to read the codes. Autozone will plug their code reader in and get you the codes. They don't charge for that.
If you can leave a comment and describe other lights that might be on, I will try to tell you what they mean. If you can be more descriptive of the oil leak you mentioned (where it is? How much?), I will try to help you with that. As it stands, I would guess that the oil leak and the light are connected and that you are running dangerously low on oil, but that's only a guess at this point.
Hope this helps you.

i think you will need to take to a dealership or workshop and get them to put a scanner on the car and this should be able to tell you what they are ,
sorry,but hope it all works out.
