Probably broke the wire to the low purser sensor most likely near the gauges. Check any damaged areas for hidden damage like a wiring harness or even just one or two wires.

Good tinkin there Jeeps. But depending on the position of the actual sensor he could have broke the wire right at the sensor. Which would be located on the block..somewhere under the fiarings...

Plus in case I missed your first post!

Jeeps in the right track, but the wire probably isn't broken - it's shorted to ground.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.
