Where is the oil pressure sender located? Dash gauge shows full scale. Does this mean a short somewhere?
Thank you

Usually a full scale reading indicates a sender that has gone open or the resistance has increased OR it is unplugged. No idea where it is located. I looked on my 2004 and couldn't find it. They used to be near where the distibutor used to be on the back of the engine on the drivers side.

It's right behind the intake manifold on the block, drivers side.
