I searched and think I found my answer but just want to make sure

In my 05 Frontier my oil pressure gauge pegged out high after I locked my keys in truck with ignition on but motor not running and before this incident it was working fine so is my oil pressure sender shot? I dont want the dummy gauge I liked mine that has a better moving reading

got mine repaired today, mine now works again and doesnt look like the dummy one. my guage dropps down the about 1/4 when the truck warms up an at idle. before that its about at half, and pressing gas brings it up a bit.

I just replaced mine. It is called a OIL PRESSURE SENSOR by Nissan. It costs like $60 and takes ten mins to replace. My gauge works like before now.

Anyone with a newer truck ever replace this sensor with the 05 unit to see if it makes the gage work right?
