How to check if EDGE fuel pressure sensor is bad?

Noticed today that my fuel pressure was reading 100psi at idle. When I shut the truck off it stays at 40. How do I check to see if the sensor is bad?

TIA

Mine was doing the same thing a while ago....just under a year on the warranty, Edge sent me a new one free. I just had to send the bad one back.

I got it all squared away. Bought a fuel pressure test kit from harbor freight. Checked pressure from test port. Was getting 61psi at idle. It was a bad sensor. Called Edge and they sent me a new one under warranty.

If they keep going bad , change brands ( make sure you get a calibration chart ) and
customize your unit with mystyle . just about any 0-5 volt sensor will work , you just
have to re wire the respective connector on to your harness .

Edge is sending me a new one. Don't know how they can tell if it's bad or not.

ISSPRO has a good troubleshooting chart if anybody wants to troubleshoot it on their own. I had an issue with my gauge... it turned out to be the gauge and not sensor. Obviously doesn't apply to Edge completely, but it can help. Just need to know how to use a multimeter.
