    more oil pressure gauge problems...

    well, i got it all installed and i fixed my previous problem with the hose not be long enough and what not. but now there is another problem....
    i started the WRX and the gauge came on and went directly to 75-80 psi.... the light works on the gauge, so the ground works also. i then removed the wire that went to the sensor and started the WRX again... this time the needle didnt move, so its not the connections.
    what do you all think it could be? do you think i messed up the sensor when i installed it?
    thanks

    Perhaps, for the sake of information, you should tell everyone what the problem was and how you solved it....

    Plug the wire that you removed from the sensor back in! I dont understand why you took it out. It was reading where it should before you took out the wire.
