Hi.there..

Firstly have you check to ensure there is enough oil in the engine..that should be one the first things you should checking at cold..also check for any signs of oil leaks..its is also widely known on alot of higher mileage 2.0cdti's to suffer from hardening of the oil pick up seal..this can cause the oil presure light to come on..oil pick up seal is in the sump..so the sump has to come off to deal with that..so that should be something to look at getting seen to sooner rather then later..its also known for bottom end failure too occur also..so as above certainly look into getting the oil pressure checked and then lead to the pick up seal,new oil and filter and then see if thats helps..
