Re: Gas Gage Question..

Chris, is the sending unit in the tank or out of the car? If it's out of the car you can test the send unit with an ohm meter. With the float up, I believe it should read about 90 ohms and drop lower as you lower the float. That will give you an idea as to if it is working or not.

Re: Gas Gage Question..

I am thinking of making ALL of them flash, or something. I think I've refered posters to one or another of them stickies 12 times this week. Nice thing is, I often get an email or pm back that says "thanks it worked." course they could just post a followup in the thread and go easy on my inbox!...lmao
