Default Low oil pressure and engine shut down

Today while driving the truck just shut off while at a light and it said low oil pressure on the dash read out. It started back up and did it again at another light. Its a 2004 5.4 with 50,000 miles . any ideas? The check engine light is now on too. HELP!

the PCM does not read oil pressure, the gauge on the dash is just an idiot sensor. Most likely, the sender needs to be replaced, which is somewhat odd for the low amount of miles the truck has. Start with the simple stuff, get the code read, and replace the sensor. Also, throw the post up on flatratetech.com and see what they say before taking it to the dealership if you so desire. Does the motor make any noise that it shouldnt be making when you started it back up?

Possible throttle body issue?

Your problem is probably related to the Check Engine. It would be completely normal for the Low Oil Pressure light to be on after the engine dies.

Get the ECU scanned and go from there.
