It would be easier to replace the sensor than to disable it. The oil pressure sensor is not difficult to access on the 2004 suburban and really shouldn't be very expensive. Would you rather I send you instructions on how to replace the sensor? The replacement sensor is about $35 if you order it in online.

How much time does it take and how difficult is replacing the sensor?
Expert:  Jared D replied 7 months ago.

It takes about 15 minutes to change. Here is the diagram:

Your other option would be to disconnect the sensor connector (#1 on the diagram) and wire in a resistor that matches the signal that the sensor normally puts out. The problem is that this information isn't published anywhere- mainly because it's much less trouble to just change the sensor.

Very good. I thank you. I ordered the socket and the sensor just now on Amazon. I also watched a short video. Looks easy. Thank you again.
