Troubleshooting the fuel sender on a Grand Wagoneer
Contributed By: Chris Medlicott
Symptom: The fuel gauge always reads full with the ignition on and is jammed against the top pin.
Problem: The circuit to the tank sender unit is open due to a wire break, worn sender unit or corrosion.DISCLAIMER: BE AWARE THAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH FUEL VAPOUR AND ELECTRICITY AND THERE IS CONSIDERABLE POTENTIAL FOR FIRE AND EXPLOSION POSSIBLY CAUSING MAJOR PROPERTY DAMAGE, SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH!!!!!!!!
Neither I nor any member of IFSJA or other person takes any responsibility for any loss of any kind including injury or death as the result of attempted repairs to the fuel sender unit or its associated wiring whether by any negligence on my/our part or otherwise howsoever including any negligent advice given in the following. The following is a record of my successful amateur repair and is written so that others may get an idea of how to fix their own fuel sender. You must make you own assessments of risk of fire and explosion and act accordingly. If you are in any doubt as to your ability (including any law that may prevent you from carrying out fuel system repairs) to safely carry out the following do not attempt it and refer the repair to an authorised repair centre. This document has been written in New Zealand and is governed by the law of New Zealand. By refering to this document you agree to be governed by that law. This document must not be referred to in any jurisdiction where limitation of liability is not allowed to the same extent as the law of New Zealand. Any such repairs made or attempted are entirely at your own risk. Keep a fire extinguisher handy at all times!!!!!
