The gauge and overboost sensor are not connected at all AFAIK. When I bought my car, I immediately noted that the overboost sensor was bypassed and the wire going to it was grounded out elsewhere (fixed it on the spot, my first DIY repair). I also tested the sensor by pressurizing it with a bicycle pump while checking it with an ohmmeter...works as advertised (cuts at 1.1-1.3 bar, hard to be more accurate with the equipment I used).

Wastegate failure could be the signal line as Brian says, or the diaphragm, or there could be too many springs inside (as was the case with my car).
