sounds like a faulty sender switch replace this and all should be well (normaly on the oil filter housing)
I have had this problem twice now and both times it was a broken cam belt guide pulley leading to the oil pump pulley breaking off. The first time this happened I was lucky and the engine was ok. I dont know the outcome this time yet as it only happened last night.
