Fuel Gauge won't work
« on: June 28, 2018, 03:37:29 PM »

Hey guys, so my fuel gauge wont work, it always stays at the same position, it shows that there's half of the gas tank filled up and it doesn't matter if the engine is on or not, does anyone has any ideas how to check if it's dead or maybe how to fix it? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Here's a photo of it for you guys to get the idea:

I think thats the gauge at fault, with no ignition the float sender wont give a reading so that needle should be at empty with ignition off.

You have nothing to loose by opening the gauge.

Thank you very much, but do you mean the actual gauge which is in the gas tank or on the speedometer?

Could that be why it doesn't work though? ;)  ;D

Ignore the sender in the tank for now. Your clocks guage should be at empty when the ignition is off so your clocks guage is stuck. Once you free the clock guage then you might need to look at the fuel sender in the tank. I think I have a pair of those clocks going spare somewhere in the scrap pile.

Ok so the thing is, i opened the gauge and for example if i lower the "lever" down and turn on the ignition, it rises up back to the same position i showed you guys before. I think it may be the wirings? Here is the picture, is there somethng wrong? What else should I check there?

Ok my bad, i connected the wires the way they should be, because on the back near the wires it says what color there has to be. After I connected these wires correctly the gauge now shows me that my gas tank is full (but it is not). Any ideas?
