Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

First check and make sure the engine oil level is at the proper level.If the oil is found low this can cause this fault.If the oil level is o.k. I suspect you have a faulty engine oil pressure sensor needing replaced as this was a common fault but to be sure you will want to have a shop or dealer install a manual oil pressure test gauge to test the actual engine oil pressure to see if the oil pressure is low on the first cold start.If it is found to be low this can be due to a restriction in the oil pick up tube in the oil pan.It can build up with sludge or debris causing this issue with the engine needing cleaned internally to resolve this fault.In some cases an additive can be added to the engine oil to run through the oil to clean it then drain and change out the oil and filter to resolve this fault.
