Hi There, I'm Clay a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience.

From your description most likely the Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) switch is at fault. I've seen EOP failures quite often. Verify there is a 5 volt reference at the gray wire on the EOP sensors 3 wire connector located at the back of the intake manifold.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions or run into any problems let me know.

Kindly rate my assistance in a positive manner so I may have credit for helping you.
Positive ratings are greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
