Welcome to just I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal. Using the manual oil pressure Test gauge check and see if the oil pressure is remaining steady while the gauge is bouncing up and down. Let me know what you find

It's really likely that you have a faulty instrument cluster then remove the instrument cluster make sure that the connector is not damaged and it is firmly plugged into the back of the cluster itself

i checked the cluster connector, cleaned it, lubed and put in another one and the same problem came up
Expert:  Dodge expert replied 5 years ago.
Check the ground to the cluster.
It grounds on the center of the dash near the braided ground strap for the radio. If OK, check for a bad connector on the cluster or a bad circuit board
