engine oil light on with swapped guage cluster

just swapped out my guage cluster with another used one(my tach was not working for ever).
tach now works, cleaned bulbs and reflectors............but my lower left ENGINE OIL light is on along with the large ! warning light.
is this warning me of an inadequate oil level or is it a faulty engine oil pressure sending unit? Do you think the two warning lights are related? What to check.

The warning lights come on when grounded by the sensors. You could have a crossed connection somewhere.

Pull the wires on the oil pressure sender and see if the lights go out. Also check that the wires are on the correct connectors on the oil pressure sender. Think there is a dot of paint the same color as the wire for it on the sender.
