Default Autometer oil pressure gauge pegs 100 ?

I installed it today and put teflon tape on the senders threads and the adapter, ran a wire from the sender to the s port in the gauge, ran 12v to the i side of the gauge and then grounded the center port to a bolt on the fender. The gauge pegs 100psi when i turn the key to on and then when i crank it it registers 100 psi running. I measured resistance at the sender and its at 0.24 ohms. Has anyone had this happen to them?
