2004 350 Z, oil gauge reads 0-4-8 instead of 0-60-120. Why and how do i reset it. New to forum so all suggestions helpful TIA
If the oil level is correct, the main suspect is a faulty Oil Pressure Sending Unit.

or

Could be a bad sending unit, but it could also be that the stepper motor in the gauge pod is glitching out, or even a possible wiring fault. These Zs are getting old now and it wouldn't surprise me if we start seeing stepper motor issues with the gauge clusters. Take the Z to a mechanic and ask for verification. They should be able to hook up a mechanical pressure gauge where your sending unit is now to get an accurate reading.

My 2003 350Z base is JDM (I live in Japan) it has 0-4-8 on the oil gauge. Kilopascals. Metric not imperial measurement.

On a side note I had to replace my gauge recently as the stepper motor was flakey and kept dropping out totally.
Cleaning the gauge didn't seem to help but I also didn't know how to fix it. 2nd hand one works just fine.
