They talk about cranking the engine enough to get the oil up before the fuel pump sends fuel, It didn't say anything about 2 oil sensors, but there is quite a bit of complaining about the electricals. Hope this helps.

96 Chevy blazer how do I get out of safe mode ran low on oil now runs an drives but won't let car go fast past 2000rpms


The computing system on your vehicle has no safe mode for running low on oil . The only thing that will happen is the check gauges light will come on.
The oil pressure gauge is an analog device that is located in the IPC. The oil pressure gauge is operated directly by the oil pressure sensor circuit. As the engine oil pressure changes, the resistance of the sensor and the current flow in the oil pressure gauge changes. The current flow in the oil pressure gauge causes the needle to move in order to appropriately display the engine oil pressure. A sensor resistance of 1ohms will display as 0 kPa (0 PSI) and a resistance of 88 ohms will display as 80 kPa (80 PSI ). The IPC also monitors the oil pressure sensor circuit and interprets the current flow in this circuit in order to determine when the engine oil pressure is too low. If the oil pressure is too low, the check gauges tell tale will turn on. The oil pressure sender is located on the left side of the 2.2L. The 4.3L engine, oil pressure sender is located at the top left side, near the distributor/high voltage switch.
Try disconnecting the battery cables an hold them together for ten minutes , reset ECM !

Assuming everything is ok with the pressure sensor and wiring, its possible you dropped the connector rod between the distributor and the oil pump down into the oil pan.

My 1990 1500 chev with throttle body injection system has no power to the fuel pump fuse or relay is the circuit completed through the oil pressure switch and if so where is the switch located


On the v-6 engines the oil pressure switch feeds the fuel pump. I'm not sure about your 1500. You didn't say what engine you have, so I will assume it is a v8. The oil pressure switch should be behind the distributor, near the firewall. You can use a paperclip as a jumper in the electrical connector that goes to the oil pressure switch. If it's the switch or low oil pressure, the jumper should complete the circuit and energize the fuel pump.
