Default p0522 code engine oil pressure or sensor voltage 2003 PT

Daughter Got the oil light on while driving early this morning on a less than 2 mile trip, but it did not cause the car to stop while driving. It started fine for me about 20 minutes later when I got to it, no oil light either. So I did the key dance and it came up a p0522 code engine oil pressure or sensor voltage. The oil was just changed about 2 weeks ago to a partial synthetic and was full. There may be some leaking cause I can smell it sometimes, but do not see any on the ground after driving or while idling. So....

I Disco'd/reco'd the battery and that cleared the code. Drove about 4 or 5 miles, no new code or light. Is there a chance it's transient and not a real problem? I am not familiar with how this engine pumps oil and if a oil pump can actually fail on this motor. I did not touch the sensor or look at the wiring harness yet or the sensor, or the connections.

Also, this may be a 2004 PT engine that was put in this 2003 by the seller.

Any advice on this? Thank you all! So sorry we even need such a forum!

Had a similar issue when i changed mine to synthetic. P0522 within 10 miles of changing oils. Cleared the codes and checked oil pressure. Everything was fine. That was about 12k miles ago. Have not had it go off again.

No reason why it went off.
