Fuel Gauge


Hi --- have a 53 plate Hi-jet pick up and the fuel gauge has stopped working (believe this to be common?) to save me a bit of time can anybody tell me if it is the sender unit in the tank or the gauge itself (or something else!!!) that is most likely to be the cause. Many thanks

will be the sender in tank I

will be the sender in tank I have just taken one out and float had fallen off if it has two wires going to sender try shorting them out. if gauge goes up sender deffinately at fault

Fuel gauge

If you take the wire off the tank sender unit and put it to a good earth, then switch on the ignition, the fuel gauge should go to 'full'. This will prove that the fault is with the tank sender unit.
