gas gauge stopped working

(1/8) > >>

Glennster:
I checked the wire on the sending unit, it looks OK. It's still hooked up. I looked at the fuses, old eyes make it hard to see, but I think they are OK. I installed a new 3/8" sending unit last year.
 I do not have a Ralle dash.
Any ideas about what went bad?
Which fuse feeds the gauge?
THANKS!

brads70:
try giving the ground strap a wiggle.

Glennster:
I don't know what that is........
I did check the wire that hooks to the sending unit.

Jamiez:
There's a strap from the tank to the body.  It provides the ground for the sending unit.  Corrosion tends to be an issue with this connection. Without a good ground connection, pretty much nothing works correctly

 :iagree:  ground strap connects from the steel fuel line on the body to the steel hard line on the sending unit.
Here is one.
