If when you use windows or lights. Then there is a massive draw of voltage/ current from battery. If alt or battery is week then when you use either it's dimming gauges as it can't supply enough voltage.

With engine running about 13.5 volts. With engine off 12.2 ish. If you have 13 with engine running alt is ok.

If it's only the oil pressure gauge that's affected it's probably an issue with the wiring/earth for that gauge. If there was a drop in the battery/charging voltage then everything would be affected.

A quick test with a multimeter will answer that for sure though.
