No tail ligt or brake light to trailer hitch plug.

Check the "T" plug where harness is hooked up. Sometimes dust and dirt will get in and cause you to lose connection. I use Electronic silicone grease in the connection to reduce dust accumulation and keep water out.

1981 gmc 4 x4 keeps blowing fuze park ligts dont work? grounding out but be nice to have a schematic It takes a 20 amp fuze put a 25 in it the front park ligts came on for only a few seconds then blew....

My 87 GMC did the same thing. Check the ground wires that screw into the radiator support on each side. The right side ground wires were close to the battery on my truck and over the years corroded the ground wires.

The oil light keeps coming on with a bell

If your oil gauge if you have one reads good pressure, more then likely you have a bad sensor, if you just have an oil light, take it to a repair shop where they can do an oil pressure test. Have it check, low oil pressure can cause major engine damage.

Losing oil pressure and oil ligt comes on when i accelerat only

Start by changing oil to correct grade & filter change.

Oil does actually wear out - and thin at higher temperatures. Synthetics do better at high temps than others.
If you still get a problem - You may need a new oil pump and/ or non return valve.
It can also be a bad sign of serious engine wear - needing a rebuild.

Oil light comes on and dings all day

If engine is not ticking or knocking while running, likely the pressure sender is faulty. If changing it makes no difference, have actual pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

97 wrangler oil pressure drops when engine is at idle

check the engine oil level... you could possibly need to replace the oil pump soon... if you do not live in a cold climate i would consider using 30 or 50 weight oil. do NOT use that in a cold climate as the oil is like molasses when it gets cold.
that's only temporary. one other thing to consider is a clogged oil filter... when was the last time it was changed ?
