Fuel gauge fixed ,woo hoo
Further to my previous post
I have a 2004 156 1.9jtd and the fuel gauge is not working. What happens is when you turn the ignition on the gauge needle moves slightly and the orange light comes on then goes off then after 40 seconds (this time remains constant ) the gauge goes right over to the extreme full end of the scale. Then when you turn the ignition off the gauge stays full for another 15 seconds (again this does not change) and then goes off.
I have tried another fuel gauge off another car and that did not work ,I have looked for the wiring earthing out as much as i can but if it was a straight forward earthing problem the gauge needle would jump to full straight away without the delay wouldnt it?
By the way the fuel light appears to work when it should."
The gauge does the same thing even with the sender wires at the tank disconnected so obviously not the tank sender , the time it takes the needle to go across the dial and back are strange and the delays are allways the same
Got me beat this one
NOW CURED !!
All the problem was ,is that one of the block of connectors on the back of the speedo had come adrift !!
Plugged back in and all was restored to normal
