Question about 1986 Ford Thunderbird
The way a professional would address thi is to check the pressure at the engine with a shop guage to see what is real. If still no pressure the most obvious reasons would be a bad oil pump or clogged stainer or your crank bearings are warn out. An oil service may make it a little better but as soon as the oil gets warn out the pressure will go back down.
Now if a shop gauge shows good pressure and by testing the sender the only other option would be a bad gauge, Gauges do go bad

The gauge package on the digital dash system for the 1986 Ford Thunderbird (we have a 1985 ford thunderbird with the same setup)
might be damaged seeing that you had to replace the bad wiring and sensor. That's probably what I would have done.
That's high technology from the 1980s.
