How is an 'electronic power control' any different than an ECU? basically it's saying the power control (engine control) is behaving so poorly that oil pressure is affected...these things are normally on "drive by wire" systems....clean the grounds from battery to chassis, and chassis to engine...perhaps disconnecting the battery for that time, combined with establishing correct electrical delivery to the devices will prove successful~

use a wirebrush...garden hose where the battery is concerned to wash away the baddies.
