Ok, start with the obvious, check the oil, and while the truck is running listen under the hood for ticking or clattering noises. If the oil is full, and the engine is running nice and quiet and smooth, it's most likely your oil pressure sending unit, usualy located somewhere near the oil filter housing. It will have 1 wire coming from it, check to make sure it's got a tight connection. If that still doesn't work, try replacing the oil pressure sensor. You will need a drain pan when you do it, because you will loose a little oil when you remove the sensor.
Good Luck!

run fault codes to find out what sensor activated the engine light. Check oil level and water level at the radiator cap. Something has failed for the light to come on and put the engine in limp home mode.

Possible that the oil pressure is low , the oil level is low or the oil pressure switch has failed.
Check level of oil, check for pressure of the oil to the sensor -swap and test and finally check for error codes to confirm the case.
