Auto Meter oil pressure gauge

Why is the needle bouncing around? Just started doing it lastnight driving home. If I let off it stops but if I am into it it's bouncing from 25-30 to 100... The sender is on the HPOP. I checked the wires really quick last night, but will look closer today.:shrug:

check the sending unit with a ohm meter... the lower the ohms the higher the pressure should read

just check it at the sending unit and the back of the gauge ... try and narrow down where the problem is
