I had a similar one on the Grand Voyager. The light stayed on at very low revs, bring them up a little and it went off.

When the engine is running, dip the oil, if it's NOT on the dipstick then the pump is at least sending it round the engine.

My knowledge of oil pumps doesn't extend to if they "wear out" and give poor pressure or circulation volume, but my problem was the oil pressure sensor.

Regards Dave
