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.

If the engine is making any noise when running with this issue this can indicate a low oil pressure fault.This can be due to a restricted oil pick up tube or screen needing cleaned or an issue with the oil pump itself or failing bearings.It may also be due to thick dirty oil needing changed out.

If there is no noise I would have the oil changed out and the oil pressure tested with an oil pressure test gauge.If the pressure shows as o.k. then the oil pressure sensor needs replaced in most cases.
