So you either have an oil pressure problem or a sender problem, you need to hook up a manual gauge to find out the actual oil pressure is.

you probably have a cracked head, the 2000 to 2001 cherokees had that problem. if you caught it early enough, you can swap the head from a 02-04 grand cherokee. if not, your engine might be gone.
