Default 95 chevy 6.5 ops problems

About 2 weeks ago the oil pressuring te on my 95 chevy 2500 s vin turbo diesel jumped from 40 pounds to around 60 pounds accordo the gauge. I found the oil pressure gauge would read anywhere between 40 and 60 pounds. After doing research on this site and others I decided that the oil pressure switch was most likely the problem. The snap on truck was in town today so I picked up the socket I needed and stopped by napa on my way home and bought a new oil pressure switch. I installed the switch without too much difficulty. The truck started normally and I took it for a short test drive. The oil pressure gauge showed 40 pounds. The truck would not shift out of second gear and even worse the truck would not shut off when I turned the key. When the key was in the off position the tac wold go to 0 but the engine was still running. I then put the old OPS back into the vehicle and everything was normal except the oil pressure was varying. I went back to napa and exchanged the ops for a different one. I installed the second ops and had the same problem where the truck wouldnt shut off.

Thanks for the help I am all out of ideas.

Hmmmmm.....that's an odd one.

None of that makes sense with just an OPS change.

The OPS powers the lift pump (except while key is in "start" position, unique to 95 models only) as well as drives the gauge on a 95 , but it doesn't keep the engine running after a "key off" event.

I'm going to guess it's actually an ignition switch problem.

here's a pic that will make the rest of this post a little "clearer":

You might think that and OPS keeping the lift pump running might keep the engine running if it fails on shutdown.

But, the key shuts off the the Fuel shutoff solenoid and the PCM shuts down the PMD, which no longer drives the fuel solenoid once power is removed from the PCM (IE: key off). The fuel solenoid is what determines the injector pulse to the cylinders. Stop driving the fuel solenoid and there's no fuel delivered to the cylinders.

Remove power from the PCM/fuel shut off solenoid and the engine will stop. No questions asked as the FSOS is powered open. Remove the power and the FSOS slams shut, cutting off fuel to the IP.

Somehow, you're still getting power to the PCM/FSOS which leads me to say "ignition switch". That seems to be the only common point of failure in the systems you're having troubles with.

The ignition switch is very "glitchy" on GMT400's when they get old and worn. I'm going to guess your OPS change/no shutdown problem is a coincidence.

Now, if someone has messed with the wiring, all bets are off...something very "weird" could be going on and power going where it's not supposed to.

Keep in mind; without actually seeing and troubleshooting the truck, I'm guessing here....

I only use AC Delco or GM for the OPS. & many other parts. They seem to hold up better.

Did you have any voltage coming off your old OPS?

I did the dual lift pump relay upgrade and the voltage coming off my bad OPS was enough to engage the relays and run the lift pump. I've been meaning to change the OPS just because but it's been running this way for several years now.
