As long as they don't run out of baling wire.TAL0362 said:Yeah, Farmers they know how it works and how to fix it.
yeah what he said, couldn't have said it better my selffarmer ted said:The sending unit in the tank is a variable resistor that allows various amounts of current to flow through the guage. this heats up an element in the guage and causes the needle to move various amounts. If you turn the key on and go to the sending unit connection at the tank you should have battery voltage on the wire coming from the guage. If you remove that wire and the guage reads empty and then ground that wire and the guage reads full, the most likely cause is that the sending unit in the tank is bad (assuming the tank is grounded correctly). If you do not have voltage at the tank with the key on (and the guage doesn't respond when the wire is grounded) then you have an issue with a power supply (fuse, connection, etc.) Guages are simple circuits but can seem complex if you're not comfortable with basic electricity. If you have a friend who understands 12V DC have them help.
Keep in mind that most problems are actually caused by simple things...fuses, connections (either someone did some work and forgot to hook something back up or bumped something) and the like are the most likely culprits. start simple.
