Fuel Gauge

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have a 2007 S Type Diesel with a Fuel Gauge that appears faulty.The needle can point anywhere whenever the ignition is turned on and I was just wondering if I purchased a second hand instrument cluster from eBay if it is possible to change just the fuel gauge as this may be a cheaper option to having it diagnosed at a main dealer.

Thank You.

I'd first find a local independent and get them to take a look - there may be an issue with the sender in the fuel tank, which will give a false reading at the gauge.

I had a similar problem with my car, sometimes it was fine, others it had a mind of its own.

It is a common problem with gauges that work with little servo motors to move the needles. They can be repaired professionally or if you are feeling brave you can replace the motors themselves. There are plenty of “ how to’s” on the internet and you can buy a set of four motors for around £10.......

 

Regards Chris.
