Hello, thanks for writing in. There are two common issues that will cause this to occur on your vehicle. The most common is the oil pressure sensor. The sensor itself fails internally and the reading defaults to this reading. If the sensor is fine then the problem is with the gauge. The motors that run the gauges on this instrument cluster tend to fail and cause this. I always test the sensor first and then move to the cluster if the sensor is fine.
