Take the wire off the fuel sender and ground it, the fuel gauge should read full. if it does, the sender or the float on the sender is bad. if it does not read full, there is a bad wire or connection between the fuel tank and gauge. if you take the sender out, and the float is bad, these are easily available, you can hook up the wire and another wire to ground the body of the sender and you should be able to work the arm up and down and the gauge should read.

What is this and will it keep the fan from working on a 99 Buick lesabre


from your photo and looking at the two white bars held together, they resemble ceramic resistors which are used to reduce voltage
normal application was in an ignition system to reduce the voltage to the coil from 12 volts to 7.5 volts in the run circuit
I cannot imagine why they would be connected in a fan circuit that uses 12 volts all the time
maybe some body else would advise on this or talk with an accredited auto electrician as to the installation and purpose of the item

1955 olds 88 hei ignition wiring to key and ignition system


Original system has a resistor wire between coil + and ignition key, to reduce voltage and thus increase amps to give fatter spark and increase fuel mileage. For HEI system, this resistor wire must not be used, so run new primary wire straight from switch "run" to coil +. There should already be a wire from the starter solenoid to the coil + to supply full 12 volts when cranking to give higher voltage spark to plugs to help jump the gap better for use while starting. The MSD web site has much more info.

Turn key starter will not turn


First check the battery voltage you should have at least 12 volts.If you don't then replace the battery but,if you do have 12 volts or more then check and see if you have 12 volts at the starter solenoid.If you do then the solenoid is faulty.Replace starter solenoid.

Can I use a 8 volt battery on a 6 volt tractor or will it trip the voltage regulator and blcck the generator?


YOU CAN USE AN 8 VOLT BATTERY, IT SHOULDN'T HURT ANYTHING. THE ONLY THING IS IT WON'T STAY FULLY CHARGED. THE GENERATOR IS DESIGNED FOR A 6 VOLT BATTERY NOT 8 VOLTS. WHAT I DO IS CHANGE THE SYSTEM TO 12 VOLTS. NOTHING WILL HAVE TO BE DONE TO THE STARTER, IF THE TRACTOR STARTS LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO. IT WILL JUST START FASTER. YOU WILL NEED NEW POINTS & CONDENSER & A RESISTOR FOR THE DISTRIBUTOR. ALSO A 12 VOLT BATTERY & A MID 1970'S INTERNALLY REGULATED ALTERNATOR, MOUNTED IN PLACE OF THE GENERATOR. THIS A LITTLE WORK BUT THE TRACTOR WILL START AMAZINGLY FAST. I HAVE DONE THIS SEVERAL TIMES & IT WORKS GREAT. IF THE FUEL GAUGE STILL WORKS YOU WILL NEED A SPECIAL RESISTOR FOR THAT. OF COURSE ANY LIGHTS WILL HAVE TO BE CHANGED TO 12 VOLT GOOD LUCK. DR. VOLT.

Purchase a one wire (12 volt) alternator,and install it,and it uses one wire only,the out put wire to the battery from the back of the alternator.Then replace all lamps,and bulbs with 12 volt replacements.Disconnect the voltage regulator completely.The radio,if original,will need a voltage reducer,purchase a coil resister to put in line on the positive input to the radio.This coil resister will reduce the voltage to 7 volts,witch will be fine.The starter will work fine,leave it alone.All dash lights will have to be changed also,to 12 volt bulbs.You can find these replacement parts at any N A P A auto parts store.The resister is a part number irc 13,and the alternator will end in a sw,this means single wire.

Put a test light on the starter ignition terminal,on the starter,if the test light lights up as soon as you turn the key to the start position,and the starter delays starting,check the voltage at the same spot,with a volt meter.If the voltage is lees than 12 volts,and then jumps to the 12 volts,after the delay,then replace the ignition switch.If the voltage is at 12 volts when the key is turned to start the car,and the delay occurs,replace the starter.

2006 Chevy Silverado alternator intermittent charging


Perfectly normal.
Starting with the 2005 model year, light duty full size pickups and utilities are equipped with a new Regulated Voltage Control (RVC) system. This system reduces the targeted output of the generator to 12.6-13.1 volts when in "Fuel Economy Mode" to improve fuel economy. The generator may exit "Fuel Economy Mode" if additional voltage is required. This will cause the voltmeter to fluctuate between 12 and 14 volts as opposed to non-regulated systems that usually maintain a more consistent reading of 14 volts. This fluctuation with the RVC system is normal system operation and NO repairs should be attempted.
