Hi. there are many issues that can cause this type of situation. the oil pressure sending unit may be malfunctioning. there could be a faulty module or the wires and connectors could also be lose or faulty as well. you could also have a clogged oil filter but, that usually isn't the main issue here. the most common problem here would be a bad oil screen in the pan or a faulty oil pump. you will find the problem in these areas above.
Please rate and god bless:)

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

oil pressure should be atleast 18 psi @ idle on the engine however i think you have a weak/faulty oil pressure switch as well

Exhaust pressure sensor a possibility if it has a DPF (diesel particulate filter). Has it had its fuel pump recall, the oil pressure light could be just the constant cranking and running the battery low.
