I know that this has probably been covered a million times already, but before I rip my dash and fuel tank apart, there is a question I would like to ask.
My fuel gauge does not work, but the low fuel warning light is glowing on the dash permanently. Does this mean that the tank sender is definitely at fault, or does the warning light run off the dash gauge ? If the warning light being on means that the tank sender unit is faulty it would save a lot of time.
The temp gauge moves about 1mm up the scale when engine is warmed up and that's all. There are two senders I can see, a blue 2 pin, and a grey 3 pin. Anyone know which is for the gauge?,
I have replaced the voltage regulator and no difference.
Hi Karl...welcome to the forums. Glad to have you aboard. Your problem does sound like a faulty fuel sending unit and it sounds like you might have a faulty temp sensor aswell. Replace both of those which you should be able to find cheap online, and you should be golden after that. Good luck and post back. Cheers!
V-TECH THIS, YOU HONDA PUNKS!!!
Finally nailed the problems.
Removed the fuel sender unit......it was broken. The wire had snapped. Replaced with new one from Audi (£57 !!)
Removed the coolant sender unit and replaced with new one.....sorted (sort of). Engine now reads 107 degrees when warmed up, but temp is actually only 90 degrees, so temp gauge just a bit too optimistic.
