maybe replace the switch? (Its only got the light and not the gauge?)

Its fairly simple circuit... Power in, through the switch into the light... Not much can go wrong other than no oil pressure (not oil amount, but pressure) so unscrew sender/switch and check with a mechanical gauge... sender/switch is d**k... or wire is shorting out/powering up somewhere...
