Default Oil pressure guage

Just got back to Oz to find the Jeep when running is registering at the top end of engine oil pressure.

Now I figure its a faulty sensor because with the engine cold, and not running, it automatically goes to the top when you turn the key to accessories.

Thoughts?

In Vic, Sunbury . It's a single wire sensor. Used for like 100km on the drive home from getting it as the other bloke who owned it never drove it. (Didn't rego it) hence I think it's near new lol.

A broken wire/ bad contact in the sensor plug will do that.

Got it sorted thanks to Rogerbone sending me a sensor. Yeah checked wires and even cleaned it, cleaning it made needle jump around but not resolve it.

See what happens when the replacement comes.
