Question about Cars & Trucks
NO , there is not a fuse just for those two thing's ! There are two power supply's for the whole insturment cluster . You could need a new cluster or the ECM isn't sending this info. to the cluster . Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM or the insturment cluster . Without knowing how this works (insturment cluster gets it's info.) Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that has the knowledge and test equipment to diagnose this problem.
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 psi (0 kPa) or below if:
• The ECM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.
• The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM.
For the 4.2L LL8, the ECM uses an engine oil switch that is open when the oil pressure is normal and closed when the oil pressure is low. At normal pressure, the engine oil pressure gage will display 275 kPa (40 psi). At low pressure, the gage will go to 0 kPa and the low pressure warning will be displayed in the driver information center (DIC). At high pressure, the gage will display 551 kPa (80 psi). Any values between these three values are calculated values determined by the ECM.
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle voltage based on the information from the body control module (BCM). The IPC uses the serial data information from the BCM to provide a voltage level indication on the voltmeter.
DTC P0521: Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor Performance
DTC P0522 Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P0523 Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Sensor Circuit High Voltage
Volt Gage Inaccurate or Inoperative
Install a scan tool.
Turn the ignition ON, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, perform the instrument panel cluster (IPC) gauges output control.
Does the volt gauge move up and down when commanded?

if its not a fuse check the speed sensor for the tach, and the oil pressure switch on the side of the engine block see if the lead came loose

DO YOU MEAN AT OTHER SIDE OF STOP, YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO FIX IT REMOVING CLUSTER MOVING IT UPSIDE DOWN WHILE NEEDLES MOVE AT UPPER MIDDLE PART OF GAGES

It sure sounds like the oil sending unit is at fault,now sometimes,not always,the oil sending unit will seep oil or leak oil if they go bad,but like I said,not always,change the unit,and the oil and filter just for precaution.

Common problem on the 03-06 Trailblazer instrument clusters for the fuel gauge to go out. It's usually caused by one of two main problems, either the stepper motor on the cluster's circuit board is going out or the sending unit on the fuel pump is going out. Check out this blog post about the problem - Trailblazer fuel gauge problems
