Fuel gauge always on (1994 F78)


Hi, My 'gauge' fuse (7.5A) keeps blowing after a few minutes running - so i loose all warning lights/clock/temp gauge/rev counter etc. I have noticed that the fuel gauge is now always reading correctly even when the ignition is off !

Everything was fine and two things happened at once - I replaced the clutch cable - went through some floods. I'm thinking the floods may have had an effect, maybe fuel sender wiring (??), haven't been there yet.

Just wondered if anyone has had the same experience or any ideas.

many thanks

Short circuit.

There is a short to earth. I suggest you get a wiring diagram and work out which cables to test. You will need a multi-meter and disconnect the cars battery.
