Your car is throwing a code.

Go to a mechanic and get ECU data scan it'll tell you what the issue is.

when the revs go up in neutral does it go out?
if its only when the box is in neutral it sounds like a wire is shorting out on the loom that runs under the drivers gaurd as both the neutral safty switch wire and oil pressure light wire go threw there,

However oil light doesnt mean oil level is low all the time, its also oil pressure, i would get an oil pressure gauge put on the car asap to make sure its not a oil supply issue (oil pump gone, or mains/big ends on there way out)

if your oil pressure is fine then start to check out the loom, is the car lowered?
