Most likely you have a oil pressure light that's connected pressure switch not a sensor. So you will have to install a pressure sensor, which will probably come with your gauge. You may have to install a tee and keep your original switch as well to keep your light off and to keep your engine running. My 01 didn't monitor the oil pressure and since I replaced all my gauges and lights I didn't need the original switch but I'm not sure if your 08 needs it or not.
