Re: Fuel gauge not working
Hey guys, first post, just bought an 89 Black Standard Cab 5 Speed S15 2.5l Vin E last week. Not sure how many prior owners on it, but apparently the guy who owned it previous to the guy I bought it from, swapped out the gas tank for a 20gal one. Fuel gauge has not worked since. Fuel gauge reads empty no matter what.
I am planning on pulling the bed tomorrow and seeing if i can track down the issue (or do I even need to?) Where should I start? The dash? the tank?
Another quiestion is, I'm not sure what size tank this truck came with to begin with... but if he reused the fuel pump assembly in the larger tank, could that be a part of the issue? If that's even possible?
And another question, does anyone know if I have a low fuel "dummy" light? If so it's not working, anyone have a picture of that particular dash with all the dummy lights lit? Not sure if I have blinker lights either, I have the left and right blinker "tick-tick-tick" but no lights flashing.... any help is appreciated!
