Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. A couple questions so I can get a better picture of your situation, I assume you checked the oil level / some vehicle's have a built in safety with the oil pressure , that is if the ECU detects low oil level or pressures it will kill the engine to limit further damage. so recomend check oil level first ,then inspect oil pressure sending switch for leaks and or connection, then resistance.
