Oil alert problem

My 91 200 TQ 20V has an annoying problem. The dash display will go off
sounding the oil alert while driving. Sometimes it goes off on starting from
a stop usually it occurs during driving. The oil pressure gauge shows 4.5 to
5 bar. The gauge appears to work, the pressure goes down on idle.
This seemed to be the high oil sending unit. I changed that (the white one)
to no avail. Any ideas? Any BTDT?
