Fuel filter light Flashes While Running

my OBS truck has just started flashing the fuel filter light at me at any and all throtle positions. ive already replace the fuel pump and the fuel filter along witht the little sensor on the side of the fuel canister. the light is really starting to get on my nerves seeing as how its like a red strobe light flashing in my face.

Well if you do regular maintenece you won't need the light. Superduty's don't have them and alot of people with OBS's put a plug in that spot because that sensor is known to leak. But if you have replaced the sensor and the light is still coming on then you have a restriction problem.
