Oil pressure switch

I have a bad oil pressure switch and need to replace it. Of the replacement parts listed at O'Reilly's, one comes with a gauge and one doesn't (or at least doesn't mention it). Do I need to replace the gauge as well as the switch or will the replacement switch work with the gauge I have in the dash already?

to my knowledge the oil pressure switch for the gauge is a dealer item the after market ones from the auto part stores is for the idiot lite type.

If you are talking about the oil pressure sending unit switch, after market one works fine.

Thanks. I was hoping I wouldn't have to take apart the dash. Another question. The Master Pro Ignition model is 82.99 while the BWD model is 42.99. Is the Master Pro just that much better or is the price because it's an OE part?

The Mopar one is also $43 and would trust that one better than BWD.

25 Bucks @ Rock Auto Parts. By the way with gauge means that it is for a vehicle with a gauge and not an idiot light! Just replaced mine, works fine!

i wouldn't ever use a NON-MOPAR sensor on a Mopar Vehicle... it might work for a month or two, but mopars don't seem to like them... spend the money, and have some piece of mind
