Question about 1999 Audi A4
thank you for the excellent description. I was able to follow it easily and get to the sensor. Unfortunalty, all the wires were in good shape and I did not see any problem with the connection. Time for a new sensor?
Interesting that the car stalled when I pulled the sensor while running?
Glad it helped. Another question for you - did you actually see a wire that was run beneath the float arm on the body of the sender? If not, it may have broken off completely. Here's a picture of where the wire is:
Also, on the backside there is a small circuit board (which you can see in the picture as well) that is contacted by a wiper point - as you swing the float arm through its range of motion, yo'ull see it contact a number of solder points. Try cleaning those. Finally, did you check the electrical contacts on the pump unit itself, where the harness for the sender plugs in? Even if the contact points on the sender harness are clean, the socket they plug into could be dirty.
If none of that fixes it, I'd say you're in for a new sender. Let me know what happens OK?
