Re: fuel gauge resister

It's much easier for the doctor to make a diagnosis if the patient will describe his symptoms.

the most common symptom of a bad gauge resistor is a constant reading of no more than 1/4 th of a tank.

Re: fuel gauge resister

Hello and thank you for the link I will check it out.
Vet, Thank you for your help, that is what is wrong with me gauge. I checked out the sending unit and found it good and than spent time searching past posts and found the info. I had an electrician friend check it out and its open.
I was going to you next as I know that you are a great help with electrical issues.
Thanks again. K.E.N.

Re: fuel gauge resister

Ken check out this thread and maybe PM Tom and I'm sure he has some extra resistors.
He knows me and we have communicated many times so I'm sure he will help you.
