    Default fuel gauge stopped working - any idea's

    got into car this morning and the fuel gauge appears to be U/S

    also the trip computer mpg display shows 'F' ( fault ?)

    anybody got idea's that I can check out - the only thing that seems fishy to me is that last night I had to fold down all the back seats completely flat to transport my bike to races - has moving the seats caught/pulled a wire or plug connector somewhere ?

    any ideas would be appreciated

    cheers - Tb

    It could have either damaged the plug or wiring to the fuel sender unit
    Time to have a careful look to see or it could be a coincidence and the sensor is u/s.

    If it were me, i'd try a reset first i.e. disconnect car battery for an hour. I would do that just incase something has got its knickres in a twist.

    Hmm I've only ever seen 'F' on the display during programming the ECU. But like others I suspect a wiring fault or bad connection to the sender unit under the rear seats.
