[DML] Re:Fuel gauge problem continued

If I'm not mistaken the gauge should also go straight up just with the  
sensor wire disconnected.  I think you need to make sure there is a proper  
connection from the fuel sensor to the back of the gauge.  When you say  that the GB 
wire reads 7.24 Volts is that when it is connected to the  gauge?  What does 
the gauge do if you disconnect the GB wire?  I don't  think you should connect 
the sensor or the GB connection on the  gauge itself, directly to 12 Volts.

For those that are following my little issue here is a follow  up.

Thanks to Dave Delman for providing me with a semi-schematic and  
info. I now know how the fuel gauge is wired up. After connecting my  
multimeter to the correct lugs I found the following:

The hot wire  (green I believe) shows 11 volts.
The fuel sensor wire (GB=green with black)  shows 7.24 volts.
When I connect the GB wire to the ground wire the gauge  goes slowly 
to zero.
When I connect the GB wire to the hot wire it goes  past vertical to 
around the 10 o'clock position.

This would indicate  that my connections are OK but the reading is way 
off. Which would mean that  the needle must have moved somehow, but I 
can't see how as I never touch it  and made sure it never got moved.

Thanks to all those who have helped so  far. If anyone else has any 
suggestions I would welcome  them.


Thank  you,
