Couple of problems- help please?

Hi all, just joined after buying a 2002 R50 and it has come with a couple of problems. I have used the search and do try to find out before asking (been a land rover owner on that forum). Anyway if you can help it would be greatly appreciate.

1. I have the oil pressure light at idle problem, the mini has had a new gearbox, oil pump, serviced, new pressure switch etc but the light is still on at idle when warm. The car sounds sweet so it doesn't seem to have cause a huge issue yet but I am concerned. I have ordered a Mann filter and will check the spring/sleeve guide but I cannot get the oil filter cap off (must have been a gorilla that put it on) if it is the guide spring anyone know where I can get the parts from? Could it be something else? It has just turned 100k

2. It only came with 1 key and it's not the remote entry. Is it possible to fit an aftermarket keyless entry system and tap into the central locking wires rather than pay 's for a remote key, if so does anyone know the central locking wiring colours?

As I said, I have tried the search, there is a lot on the oil pressure but it seems to suggest pressure switch which has been changed or goes dead without saying what the cause was/is. Many thanks for any help you can provide

Try a long breaker bar directly to a 36 mm socket and be persistent with the filter housing cap.
Maybe add a tube over it for more extension. Try it cold then warm then cold again. It should eventually budge.
Then check that the filter isn't collapsed, that the cage cylinder insert is still in the housing cap,

and that the little plunger or valve in the housing isn't missing (see pic)
