check your oil sending unit...it might be shot or the sensor for the oil light might have took a shit..try changeing out the fuse

hey i got a couple of questions for you
1. is it fairly hot where you are?(warm enough to wear shorts and a t shirt)
2. do you travel at highspeeds for long periods of time? (long as in like 20 mins from point a to point b)
3.what weight of motor oil are you using? 10w-40?
if you awnsered yes to all of them or just 2 an 3 i have a suggestion for you.
You should change your oil. i suggest that you use 20w-50 in the summer time (as in hot/fairly hot) and use 10w-30 / 10w-40 in the winter time. i had this same exact problem with my 92 cab.

well good luck to you and to when you get your oil changed if getting a thicker weight of oil doesn't work you might want to check what teamspeedandsound said
