What does it mean when low oil pressure lights comes on and the oil level is fine and a new oil change/filters?

Double check the oil level. If you are just assuming it is fine because you had a recent oil change, that is not good. It could be a loose filter, bad gasket, or loose oil pan plug that is leaking oil.

If you confirm the oil level is in fact fine, but actually pulling the dipstick and looking, then it is your oil sender and the part is very inexpensive ( under twenty dollars ) and can be removed and replaced by anyone with a wrench in two minutes or less.

If your oil level is fine, I am assuming that it is a sensor of some sort. I would go and get it checked out just to be safe. I hope I helped a little.

Your oil pump could be failing. Does this vehicle have high miles on it?
