Have a 2005 Sullair 185 compressor. John Deere turbo diesel engine.

Getting 3 flashes from the SSAM.

Replaced engine oil and filter. Still gets 3 flashes and shuts down.

Getting 55psi of oil pressure, verified with mechanical gauge. Will only stay running if you ground the wire that hooks to the sensor/switch.

Have replaced the sensor/switch with one matched up from Napa auto parts. Still shutting down and showing 3 flashes.

I need the correct PN for the oil pressure sensor/switch.
