[DML] Re: Fuel gauge info


Do you have a schematic?

I can tell you that when the gauge's  connection to the fuel sensor  is 
off/open, the needle points to the sky.

Hi All,

At the back of the fuel guage there are 3 "pillars" that connect the
fuel guage to the plastic "circuit board". Does anyone know which one
does what?

After pulling out my dash to fix the trip meter and putting it back
again the fuel gauge needle now point straight up (ie vertical). I
have fixed all my other issues (thank you to the member that suggested
the LED's have polarity, I turned some around and they now all work). 

I checked and re-checked the connections, I tried turning the needle
down but as soon as I turn the key in the ignition it shoots straight
up again.

Is there a way that I can connect some AA batteries to the gauge (with
some sort of variable resistor) so that I can check if it even moves? 

Thanks in advance,
