Attached are settings and wiring connections for the commonly-used VDO Oil Pressure Sender. This can be used to help if you are experiencing problems or if you suspect your oil pressure sender is reading incorrectly.

Remember to follow these 3 Steps first when troubleshooting senders.


  • VDO Oil Pressure sender has 1/8” NPT male threads

  • Sender either has 1 terminal (VDO 360-004) or 2 terminals (VDO 360-025)

  • If sender has 1 terminal, it is Signal and the Case of the sender must be grounded to Engine Block or RDAC Ground by clamping or brazing a wire to the case

  • If sender has 2 terminals, G is Signal and WK is not used (case is still Ground)

  • Run a hose off the oil supply with a female 1/8” NPT fitting and connect to Oil Pressure sender
