amputating the air filter restriction gauge?

I'd like to cut my air filter restriction gauge completely out of the engine bay (just to keep things tidy) but need to know if it's "safe" to do so first. I disconnected the gauge and the engine started/ran fine without the "change your air filter" idiot light on the dash lighting up. At the harness-end of the plug, I measured ~13.2 volts across the terminals but not I'm curious--is it alright just to chop the wiring off, seal the ends up, and press on or does the presence of a voltage across the plug terminals mean something I don't understand?

Lay the sensor aside in a secure area where it wont flop around and step away slowly. Take a deep slow breath, shut the hood, and LEAVE IT BE.

"MOby" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3 4x4. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a new "secret" blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its still not the fastest, but its quick enough to worry lots!
