Usually when oil light comes on at idle and goes off at higher rpm's, the problem is worn main crankshaft bearings, but could also be a weak oil pump.

the oil level sensor could be causing the problem, is the check engine light on? if it is i would get a diagnostic to see what the trouble codes are.

Hello , when does the oil light come on?? If it comes on while you are sitting at an idle , chances are good that you need a new oil pressure switch , witch is most likely next to or very close to the oil filter itself in the front of the engine block..
