SOURCE: oil pressure gage
At idle, at operating temp is there any ticking from top end of engine? Are there any knocking noises brom bottom end?
If no noises, change oil and add some Marvel oil to clean out galleys. If that dosent work, change oil pressure sendingf unit. Also, if you have a mechanical oil pressure gauge, hook it up and take a direct reading. Oil pressure (in any vehicle) at idle should NEVER be less than 15psi. Generally in 4.0 jeep engines it's never less than 30, with a high reading at driving rpm of about 40-60! (but, you did not mention what engine you have)

You could try thicker oil or stop using synthetic or add some lucas oil treatment or change the oil. The sender could be bad too. A diag is in order because if there is no presure the engine will soon die.

SOURCE: oil pressure gauge at 0
It is a possibility but I would check for sure. The oil gauge on that unit is electric not mechanical, you need to remove the sender or find a oil hole port on the side of the block and test the oil pressure to be sure it has oil pressure, if it is then it could be the sender or the wires going to the computer control. 2005 may be under warranty, however do not drive it till you know for sure. I don't remember if they still had the kill switch on that year or not, if the switch was reading zero the engine would not start so it could be something simple like a corded wire or as you said the sending unit. Hope this helps and if you need more help write back or do a chat or e-mail to get more help. You can look up the part at www.advanceauto.com and see what it looks like and get the price list for the thing and look to see if it has one two or three wires before you ever open the hood. if it's a three wire it has a kill switch if it's two it's not. if it's one it gets the signal from the computer and your problem may be the computer. However I don't know if it is still under warranty or not and weather you want to fix it or not. Let me know if you need more help. If you need the procedure for removal please respond to this post. Thanks for using fix-ya. I hope this helped.

My jeep also has started doing this. I replaced the oil pressure sensor. Sensor on the 4.7 is above the oil filter, follow the wires, typicaly is a 1 1/16 socket.
