Hi there,

 

"Oil pressure too low" means the oil pressure inside the engine is not enough.That can be caused by the oil pressure sensor(replace) or failure of the oil pump.To make sure which one it is with the engine runing take the oil filler cap out and see if is trowing oil out trough the filler place.If not definitely your oil pump is faulty and needs replacement.Please ,do not drive the car with low pressure because can result very quick in engine failure.
