This is an important issue. This means low oil pressure. The vehicle should be taken to a mechanic or oil change center immediately as the engine could seise and harm itself if it does not have sufficient lubrication. This is not just a reminder to do routine maintenance, but is a warning that your engine is having serious problems with the oil system. This could be as simple as not having enough oil, or could signal a larger issue with the engine oil system.

You also might check that you are using the correct oil. My 2012 honda civic uses 0W20 fully synthetic oil.
