Details: First, the technician checked the engine oil. The oil was full and in good condition. Next, he checked the engine oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. It was within specifications. The engine oil pressure (EOP) sensor had already been replaced, but the problem remained.

The technician used the wiring diagram (shown) as a reference to load-test the circuits to the EOP sensor

Confirmed Repair: The technician found the EOP sensor signal circuit (VT/GY wire) was damaged between the EOP sensor and connector C100. He repaired the damaged wire and road tested the vehicle to verify the problem was resolved. Fixed!
