Okay I've replaced the oil pressure sending unit and cut the oxidized part of the wire off at the gauge and put on a new connector. Could the light blue wire be damaged?

It still pegs all the way to the right while under power even before engine is started.

Any ideas? I haven't tried a new gauge yet but how likely is it this could be the problem on a 1994 205. Oddly enough the negative connection does not make a difference except for the back light of the gauge. If I disconnect the negative, gauge is still pegged.

Thanks

sounds like a bad guage..also check the resistance on the sending wire...should be 0 or very close to it.
