First time for me today, had been driving at low speed suburban driving for around 20 min, was do about 30 with mild throttle. Low Oil Pressure do not exceed 4000 RPM message came on and off several times.

Pulled over, checked oil, level fine. Car sat for 20 minutes, restarted and no repeat alarms. Have about 79.5k miles on it...

This stuff will drive you nuts.

Update: over a year later and light came on again under the same slow speed circumstances. Chimed, flashed, went away. The orange RPM warning flashed two more times as I went up an on ramp and then no more.

Bump. Happened to me last night. Bumper to bumper traffic, hot night, 4K rpm warning came on. Got home, oil level ok. Started up today, no issue. 2011, about 84k miles. Has anyone come up with a solution?

I changed the oil pump, main and rod bearings, cam bearing bridge, screens, etc. Basically everything and it was still happening. Finally thought about it a little bit and the only thing left was the balance shafts. Took it apart (again) and they were the culprit. Hasn't been back in almost a year, and it was happening weekly before that.
