Ok, so the fuel gauge didn't work when I bought my 2001 PX 200. Stripped out the sender, figuring that was the likely cause, cleaned the contact bar and tweaked it. Tested it before replacing and that seemed to work. After a 5 minute ride, the needle on the clock dropped back to zero. Bit the bullet and bought a replacement sender, which again worked for 5 minutes. Checked all the wiring connectors visually (need to get a volt meter, I guess) and they all seemed okay. Anyone got any ideas? Could it be the meter gauge on the speedometer is duff?
FYI: The speedo is the older Veglia type: black face with the needle sliding vertically across a semi-circular display.
Grateful for any help... p*55ed off removing my filler cap to see how much in the tank.
