I would check that the engine oil level is high, then I would check that the pressure is high enough by plugging a gauge into the oil pressure switch socket after removing the oil pressure switch.

There is a possibility that the oil pressure switch is bad, or the oil pump has failed, unfortunately.

    Also, changing the oil and filter might help if the filter is plugged up.

pressure sensor switch normally mid way down on engine block
oil galleries run along the block and pressure switch should be there somewhere
look both sides of engine goodluck

1986 Ford Thunderbird. Turn signal does not

Have you checked the contacts to make sure they are touching the bulb base. I have a 1995 Ford Contour that did the same thing. I took a screwdriver and bent the contacts out very slightly and it has worked fine ever since.
