Is it possible maybe the stepper motor died out?

When my sensor went out my oil pressure was reading 80 psi all the time. If you have a ELM327 and the Torque app on your phone I would think you could still get a good oil pressure reading on that if it's the stepper motor.

I am by no means a wiring expert, but with the key on: wouldn't the gauge max out when you unplug the connection from the sending unit. Likewise, you should be able to use a multi-meter/probe and ground the 12v source on the harness side and the gauge should go to 0 psi. This would rule out faulty gauge/stepper motor and point the problem to a bad sending unit. Somebody else feel free to chime in.

I put a new oil filter in and start of the truck and the took oil filteroutand it has oil in it so that tells me the pump is good , but now the gauges also working again.

When my sending unit went out the needle pegged. I'd bet a cluster issue.
