Does it stay at 80 when the key is on but engine not running?

If so the sensor is most likely shot. Replacement is the only option.

Oil pressure sensors on C5's are prone to go bad.

The approved method is to pull the intake. There is a method that requires you to remove the cowl cover then cut an access hole.....

Oil sensor through the vent area
