Default wb 43 no oil shut down

Merry Christmas everyone!
I'm hoping someone can help out - I have a '97 WB43; I was getting ready to leave MD heading to FL and the coach abruptly shut down. The Pro-Driver engine management system read 0 oil pressure yet the dash gauge read 40psi at idle. When I restart the engine, it keeps shutting down.
Which is more accurate, the gauge on the dash which shows I have pressure or the Pro-Driver system?
If the gauge is accurate, is there a way to reset the Pro-Driver system or by-pass it?
Thx
Ray

If your guage in the dash show's OK pressure, it's more than likely the ECM sensor. It's located about straight up from starter. It's a bit tough to get to. Fuel lines and air lines in the way possibly. Not sure if you can just bypass, maybe try reseating the plug.

Good luck and Merry Christmas.

Thanks Randy!
So when I disconnected the sensor, the engine continued to run; however instead of the check engine and the engine shut down lights coming on simultaneously, only the check engine light came on and there was a low oil circulation message on the Pro-Driver instead of 0 oil pressure message. I'm hoping I'm on the right track; do you know if the sensors are readily available?

Yes, less than $100, most days of the year.

Or Baltimore Freightliner, one of them should have the proper sensor.

You will need the engine numbers off of a data plate on the valve cover,to get the right sensor.

I Love this site!!
I so much appreciate everyone helping out on Christmas.
If ever anyone is in the Balt/DC area and needs a hand, or a place to park for a few days, give a holler.
Thx Colin and both Randy D and Randy T
I'll call Baltimore freightliner in the am

Same thing happened to me on a long weekend a few years ago. Bought one for about $50 to get back on the road, then bought a spare on ebay for $35. Google oil pressure sensor for series 60, to find the location.
Buy 2, carry a spare, they are small.
