WTB Nas D90 fuel gauge

The gauge on my 94 NAS has decided that the tank is always full :-) so I am looking for one that will give me an accurate reading. Does anyone have a gauge they are willing to part with?

Thanks,

Craig

Are you sure it's not the part in the tank sending a wrong signal?

I have a gauge if interested, but agree it is likely the sending unit...

There is a thread here on repairing the fuel pump. Fuel pump and sensor are all in one big expensive unit. You need to drop the tank to get to it and more than likely it will be a corroded mess. Start looking for a replacement.

Thanks guys, the fuel pump and send are less than a year old with only 5k on them. I was jacking around with the gauge cluster removing the green plastic bubbles and dropping LEDs in and I am guessing I broke something in the gauge. Light is great now but...

Rover trader, what do you want for the gauge?

You probably have a lose connection or it connected incorrectly. It should have 3 wires . A black ground and 2 others.

It's unlikely you broke the gauge.
