My 1990 Amigo had the same problem - turned out to be the diode that is the circuit for these items. The diode allows one circuit to turn on the fuel pump during starting and then the circuit goes thru the oil pressure light on the dash after the ignition key is released. This is so if you loose oil pressure the engine will shut down. I replaced the diode and it fixed the problem. After I had replaced the fuel pump etc. to no avail.
