anybody describe where it is. I'm still have gauge issues. Pegs at start so I'm guessing it's shorted

It's right next to the oil filter. Here's a pic:

I also have a oil pressure gauge issue on my 08 vdig. Needle swings wildly at certain times then settles down. The warning comes on here and there. Oil pump going out or gauge issue? Happens every 4th or 5th time we go out.

Low on oil? If you are surfing or wakeboarding with the bow riding high you could be starving the engine for oil. If this is the case I would suggest running an extra quart of oil in it. It won't harm anything.

Over fill it by one quart if you still believe this is the reason. Did you check battery volts?
