Now I have the sensor issue, reads high all the time. Do I NEED to replace the sensor or is it a dummy indicator on the dash only?

2006 Nissan Armada.
I had the same issue and when I replaced the oil pressure sending unit it took care of it on both my armada and qx56

Try replacing the old stock clamps with new 100% stainless steel ones. These are generally found at home depot etc in the plumbing section individually or in packs of 10. Ive found that the ones offered in part stores are stainless banded but have a zinc plated screw which will corrode from dissimilar metals and from exposure to the elements
