The oil pump can be changed without pulling the engine.
The impressive looking thing is the balance shaft assembly. These counter-rotating shafts balance out the inherent vibration of the engine. You can remove it, as long as you do not disrupt the gear placements relationship to each other. The balance assembly is set to a specific point.

HI. this could be a faulty sensor or a bad oil pump screen as well. the oil pump malfunction is the worst scenario in this case. You can actually test the sensor with a voltage needle to see if its getting the proper voltage. i would inspect the wires that are attached to the sensor as well. if the wires are good and the current level is ok as well, it will most likely be a faulty oil pump or bad oil pump screen as well.
In this case, i would recommend inspecting the oil pump assembly. here is a inspection guide below that will help you confirm oil pump failure.
--OIL PUMP INSPECTION GUIDE--
The internal parts of the oil pump are not serviced separately. If wear or damage is noted, replace the entire pump assembly.
Please rate and have a great day:)

I really doubt if your motor siezed up while sitting there. But your battery could have gone dead, or your stater may have locked up, or a battery cable is loose or dirty.
