Hi guys.I can't get my fuel gauge to read as it stays at empty. I,ve took the wire off the sender unit which is brand new and earthed it of the car and the gauge goes up to full! I had a spare clock laying around I even changed the gauge over from it and still no joy! Haven't got a clue what to try next. Can someone who has experienced this problem or some knowledgeable person help me on this issue? Thanks.
Well tryed earthing it and still no joy! I don't believe its stuck neither its a new sender the second sender that I bought. As for installing the sender its just a matter of setting it in and putting the cork gasket on and bolts! Am I right?
If you earth the wire at the tank - it WILL read full if wired up correctly. It's a hot wire gauge (I assume since you are using a voltage stabiliser...?) - so give it time to respond Nothing to do with 'sender'. If it doesn't - then it's either 'broke' (sic) or not wired correctly.
Well I bought yet another sender unit and this one finally works! Well sort of lol my tank is full of fuel yet it stops at half full I,m thinking maybe faulty gauge tho I tryed the old spare and its reading the same! Any thoughts?
The green wires go on the Lucar male connectors - and the light green (to the sender) on the female Lucar on the volts stabiliser. If you have anything else connected to the females - it may drag the volts down too low.
