Electrical problems, Guestion?

Fuel Guage
Hello, I have a 2006 Monaco Cayman with Electrical bugs. My current issue is the fuel gauge. It will intermittently start to increase the amount of remaining fuel until eventually it reads full. Can anyone tell me how this system operates so I can start troubleshooting it? I am also intermittently getting "check engine" and "stop engine" lights, but they are Not causing any change in engine operation. The codes read 0196 Amber, 0132 Red and 0431 Amber. These all seem to be related with a low voltage condition. Trying to follow the wiring but so far have found nothing. I would take it in if I could afford to, but after just having to replace a turbo, finances are a little tight.

You may have a bad ground in the dash.

John, as Mel suggested, you may have a bad ground. There are ground buss bars scattered over most Monaco coaches. Find each one, spray them with WD-40, loosen each terminal screw and re-tighten. Sounds too simple, but it has cured dozens, if not hundreds, of electrical "gremlins". If that does not work, tilt the dash outward and do the same with the daisy-chained grounds on the instruments.
