1987 924S Oil pressure gauge

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 924 S; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 38,500;

The oil pressure gauge on my 924 S is malfunctioning. As soon as the ignition is turned on the oil pressure gauge needle swings over and pegs at 5 bar, staying there until power is turned off (the engine does not need to be running, just electrical power on). The two wire connections at the sender are clean and the idiot light works - at least it lights up as it should when the car is started. There is adequate oil, with no noticeable signs of lack of oil pressure. All other gauges / lights appear to function normally.New senders or gauges are expensive, and rather than replacing items until I get lucky and fix the problem, I'm hoping you can provide some advice on trouble shooting the sender or gauge.
