Is the tank half full or half empty? I have seen other OE brands "Low fuel" light circuits and they have been of several designs. One is a magnetic reed switch with its own float, another has been a regular float and mechanical switch, and some have been a black box. Inside is a transistor. All of them had a lead with power applied, switch open. Close the switch, ground is applied, and low fuel lights. The black box had three wires going to it. One lead was connected to the power for the collector of the transistor. Ther base of the transistor is connected to the switch. The light bulb is connected to the emitter. When the switch is closed, it turns on the transistor to conduct, current flows from ground through the light bulb, through the emitter, and out the collector to the power source. This action lights the low fuel light. Still awake?
I know I'll get ALOT of flack on this one !! Current flow (electron flow), outside the power source, is from ground to the power source. Every time an electron moves, it leaves a hole. Consequently, hole current is in the opposite direction from electron current. Ever get shocked by those holes?
How do you think those electrons move? They fill up the hole in front of it!
Sorry, didn't mean to divert...........probably could ask Rick's for a replacement.
