-Just sounds like a bad sending unit to me. Or pull the old one out and see if there's a bunch of sludge buildup on it. Could also possibly be a bad wire connection at the sending unit...

If you unplugged the sensor, I'd venture to guess that is why your light is on. There's no pressure reading, so the computer is saying there's a problem (light on).

-And that should do it. Didn't realize you left it unplugged...

I mean, you should still replace what sounds like a bad sender/sensor as AnthemBassMan said, and then plug the connector back in.
