Hello and welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

On the engine block, just above the sump, part number 1 in the illustration:

You should check this, and its wiring (connector), and if the problem persists, and the sensor is good, the wiring is good, then the problem is from the instrument cluster itself.
You can first remove the instrument cluster, and check the bulb for the oil pressure before getting any further.

Thank you for your trust! Get back to me if you need more info...Thank you in advance for the positive rating...

Regards, Billy
