Could be the oil pressure gauge sending unit is bad or disconnected. Giving you a false reading. I'd try replacing that and inspecting the wiring going to it first. If that doesn't work temporarily install a mechanical oil pressure gauge. If the oil pressure reads good, at this point, on the mechanical gauge then I'd say your instrument cluster is bad.

I should add that this truck & engine has only 63000 kilometers/39000 + miles on it.
