Warning 'Oil pressure low indicator on...'

My 147 2.0 Selespeed display tells me my oil pressure is low every time I accelerate hard/brake hard or corner hard. So it's basically when the car is jolted or pushed hard. The oil level is normal and not reducing. Does anyone know what's wrong? Any pointers would be appreciated?!

Could be a poor connection to the oil pressure sender.
Unfortunately I think it is located on the back of the engine block, so not easy to get to.

Re: 'Oil pressure low indicator on...'

You need to have it checked immeditely. I had the same problem with my Alfa 156 '04. Running is well, checked oil level is okey, but I got the same alert with hard brake and hard turns. Finally I lost the engine suddenly yesterday and looking ways to repair or replace it...
The alert does not neccessarly mean that you are out of oil, but you might have some problems with the oil pump or some other with the engine.... Take it seriously and must keep the oil level at max not close to min. (cold engine/at least 2hours off engine)
