Prosport Evo Oil Pressure and Temp Problems

i've had my prosport EVO oil temp and pressure gauges hooked up for about 10 months now, no problems.

Recently, my oil pressure gauge has been tanking to 0 at idle and when a high electrical load (turning fan on max) is applied.

hoping to solve the problem i rewired everything from my previous set up to connecting it to the IG2 fuse and grounding the gauges directly to the frame. that did not solve the problem, so i then re did the wires from the senders of both gauges, cleaned it up and re organized all the wires down below...

this also did not solve the problem

i find it hard to believe that it's a bad sender because the problem is only seen with high electric loads. The temp gauge is also sometimes affected (about a 5* rise in oil temp with blower on high)

any suggestions? things to check

i almost think this is a sign my alternator is in the first stages of taking a permanent vacation.

if anyone is curious, i believe it was the sender, 1.2ohms with power to oil pressure gauge

ordered a new one...

I was more thinking it was just because it was a prosport.
