jeep trouble

Hey on cold days and on rainy days my oil pressure gauge wont work and reads as zero and the check gauges light comes on...after letting the car heat up for a while a re-start will make this go away...should i be worried??
obviously something is up...but how do i fix it?
is it worth going to the dealership for them to fix...any help would be awesome thanks!

Odds are, 99.9999%, that it's nothing more than a defective oil pressure sender. It's inexpensive to buy and easy to install. It's located next to the oil filter.

very common, take dash apart and clean the wire connecters for the gauge cluster then reinstall using dielectric greese

That is only needed when all the gauges go whacko. His problem is only related to his oil pressure guage that when it reads zero, like happens when the oil pressure sender goes bad, the Check Gauges light illuminates.
