what year is your car. Your signature says 911/996. If it is a 996 the problem could be terminal for the engine. You need to have the oil and filter analyzed for metal bits.

I do not know these engines in detail but in general I would have connected a mechanical gauge to confirm tha actual oil pressures at different conditions. if these are different than what you have on the gauge in the car, change the sensor. If you don't have access to a mechanical gauge then change the sensor. It is a cheap way to confirm the the actual pressure.

In the mean time, try to keep the idle so the light does not come on.

Sounds like you have a watercooled car(996)...suggest you post in the appropriate section, as the aircooled guys are not likely to be the ones to ask.

What oil are you using and how old is it.How many miles on the engine? These engines are often filled with 0w40 .I prefer 5w40 or even 5w50. There are issues with the hydraulic lifters if you go thicker than 5w.
