Fuel Gauge not working

Post by crazyhorse »

Hi all,

has anyone got any advice on how to proceed here.

Fuel gauge one day just wouldnt move. Coolant gauge works fine, so am i right to think its either the sender or the gauge itself??

You will need to replicate the correct resistance on the sender wires to work out if it’s the gauge , the wires or the sender . 
it may just be the connections on the bottom of the dash cluster , or the connection of the gauge onto the PCB
