Check Oil light remains on after repairs on 2002 Mini Cooper

Had an oil change a few weeks ago. Oil light came on after that so they replaced oil pressure sender. Now, the oil light still comes on buy only when the car is idle. When in gear and moving it goes out? This is getting very expensive for me. HELP plez.

had the same problem after a oil change. there is a spring loaded valve in the filter housing and they may have thrown it out with the old filter. without that you will loose pressure at idle. also check the filter is the right way round the seal end of the filter should go in first towards the engine if its other way round you will also loose pressure
