Fuel Gauge Stuck on Full

Post  3hundredspartans on Wed 5 Sep - 10:46

Hi All,

Has anyone come across a inoperable fuel gauge in the dash? Any suggestions other than replacing the whole dash as to a possible cause, and ultimately, a fix?

Mine is stuck on full even though the tank is nearly empty. It's a pity you cannot remove the fuel gauge from the dash unit or has anyone successfully done so?

I have tested the sender unit according to the service manual and it operates normally within the ranges specified.

The dashes are no longer available new and I want to exhaust every avenue before purchasing a second hand unit which could ultimately be faulty as well. In my case, unfortunately, I would have to buy one online and wait until it arrives here in Sydney and then test it. The only place I have seen so far selling second hand units on eBay is 2ndhandspareslondon. Can anyone steer me in the direction of another good motorcycle breaker that I can purchase one from?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers, Frank.

Hi All,

Just an update on this in case others are experiencing the same problem. I sent the fuel gauge and sender unit to a place here in Sydney who repair automotive instruments.

Problem was an open circuit with the fuel meter. It is a case of one of the connectors on the back has a broken connection inside the mechanism caused by over-tightening the nut when connecting the wiring.

The shop repaired the meter, re-coiled the mechanism and the gauge is working as it should.

Cheers, Frank.
