Default Bad oil pressure sensor ding....

I'm about to change my oil pressure sensor this week, and was curious if it's cool to disconnect the current one until I change it out.

The check light and ding going on and off every time I stop and go is driving me mad, and it's only been 1 week lol......

Cool to disconnect for a week?

It could be the sensor and would be fine to unplug for a week, but that's usually a sign of a bad plenum. Assuming the sensor is working like it should

Nah, it's the sensor, because it bounces around when the check guages light dings on.

I'll unplug it though, thanks!!
