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.

I'm guessing you have a Centroid fuel sender which drives the gauge.

Use the email address to contact Joel. He knows the trouble shooting and can likely tell you the problem from your description of symptoms. A new sensor head is around $90. The head sits on top of the fuel tank and is puck shaped.

Here is the top of one:

John - once you start checking stuff and removing wires from the "hockey puck" fuel sender, then remember to mark the wires as you take them off. There has been recent cases where folks took them off and then realised that the wires was all the same colour. This lead to some unwanted confusion.

Just saying ..........

I had a problem with my fuel sender that sounds somewhat like yours. I went through all the checks that Joel suggested, but didn't find the fault. I then changed the fuel sender, and everything was "back to normal".

Good luck

I just got back from a 1700 mile trip and noticed that our fuel guage begins to bounce once it gets close to 1/2 tank. It seems to be reading correctly, just confused as to what might be causing the needle to begin to bounce when the tank is at half full or lower.
