My primary fuel filter is located in my hydraulic compartment. all is well except there are 2 wires coming from the bottom of the filter that disppear into the harness.
Does anyone know what the wires do?
Heater? monitor?
Thanks in advance

HI , i'm pretty sure the two wires lead to a "fuel in water" light on your instrument panel. When you turn your key to the on position you should be able to see this light ,unless the bulb is burnt out.

I disconnected the wires and it does report to the instrument panel. It is not specific it just displays "warning"

Now at least you know that if you ever see the "warning" light, you know what it means.

Don't you just love the on board diagnostics?

That is confusing. Unpluging it should not give you a warning unless it is smart enough to know it is unplugged. Water is more conductive that diesel so when the water gets high enough in the bowl it conducts from one probe to another and sets off the "Water in Fuel" warning.
