Yesterday I took out the Instrument Panel and tightened up some screws and changed a couple of bulbs and today I noticed that my oil pressure guage no longer works. It just sits there at Zero and does absolutely nothing.

I checked all connections on the back of the panel and wiggled wires, cleaned terminals and cleaned the sending unit at the oil pan.

Still nothing.

The idiot light comes on when I turn on the ignition and goes out when the engine starts so I assume that I have normal oil pressure.

Is there another sending unit somewhere? Is there an independent fuse? Also Is the connector to the guage on the back of the instrument panel a 4 pronged rectangular black plastic plug? I plug and unplug it and nothing seems to change on the guages so I assume it's the one for the oil pressure.

Thanks for any words of wisdom.
