Default High oil pressure reading/03 GMC Yukon XL

Noticed the last few days my oil pressure gauge has gone from a reading of 50-60 to maxed out at 80. Don't notice anything different in the way it runs/performs, the gauge just reads 80 which is as high as it goes. I am thinking electrical malfunction as the oil levels are fine and I don't hear anything unusual. Can't seem to locate a fuse for that individual gauge, so I am at a loss. Just wanted to see if any of you fellow GM guys have seen anything similar. Thanks.....M

Oil sending unit perhaps. Last time I had one go was on my '95 Astro van. Only takes a few minutes to replace.

It could be the first sign of a spun bearing- get it checked out!

Sending unit. If it had a spun bearing you'd know it by now.
