Question about 1999 Audi A4

Fuel gauge audi a4 1999 1.8t

J dell,

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?
thanks
Nathan

    J_del,



    thanks, that worked out great. Once I got down into the tank and figured out how to pull the float, I managed to replace it without blowing myself up.



    the wire was so shot I went for the new unit vs messing around creating a new wire.



    thanks again for the solution,



    nathan

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?

My 2000 2.0 JETTA is failing inspection and the code pulling up is P0422 but I was told the Cat is in good shape, any suggestions?


code p 0422 refers to main cat converter, bank 1 ---efficiency below thresh hold ===causes cat converter,--- wiring -- heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 2
heated oxygen sensors are the ones in the exhaust manifolds before the cat converters
they are wired and the wires are delicate and can be easily damaged
O2 sensors (O2s) are found after the cat converters and can determine the quality of the cat performance
At this point I would be looking at the HO2S replacement as that is what the code indicates --IF-- the cat is in proper working condition

How to Replace the O2 Sensor in a Buick Century Car?


O2 sensor needs to be replaced when you get low gas mileage in car.
The procedure to replace is as follows: ----
1) The oxygen sensor is located under the car.
2) Put the car on jack stands on the rack, this will give you proper sensor location in the car.
3) The sensor has to be turned a bit then it can be easily removed.
4) Most of the times the O2 sensor comes out very easily but if its bit hard to remove it then you can use "FREEZE spray" to make it gets loose.
5) The spray will make it come out easily.
6) When the O2 sensor is getting removed, some of the wiring's will also come out.
7) Before removing the O2 sensor, take the note of the wiring's and the position of wiring so while inserting new O2 sensor you don't get confused.
8) Now after you remove the old faulty O2 sensor out. Carefully insert new O2 sensor in same position.
9) And reverse/refit all the wires / parts which you removed while replacing the old O2 sensor.
This will help. Thanks.

Fuel gauge not working


I FEEL YOUR PAIN ! LEVEL SENDERS ARE VERY SENSITIVE INSTRUMENTS, NEVER BUMP THEM, ETC., LETS SAY YOU DIDN'T, & MOVE ON, I CAN 'T EXPRESS THIS ENOUGH, CHECK ALL YOUR GROUND WIRES !!!!!!!!!!!!!! @ TANK, @ PUMP, @ ENGINE, YOU MAY EVEN HAVE ONE FROM TANK TO FILL SPOUT ! MAYBE ! EASILY OVERLOOKED, AND MOST IMPORTANT ! GROUND WIRES CAN LOOK OK, AND AREN'T !!! GROUND STRAPS ARE SAMEWAY, BOTTOM LINE, ESTABLISH GOOD GROUNDS , RE-DO THE WAY THERE ANCHORED, USE DI-ELECTRIC GREASE TO PREVENT CORROSION ALSO. GROUND WIRES REQUIRE BARE METAL, OK ? GREASE & ANCHOR SECURELY, YOUR PUMPS WORKING, THATS A GOOD SIGN ! FOLLOW THE WIRES FROM YOUR PUMP/SENDER FROM BACK TO FRONT, DOWN ALONG THE FRAME RAIL, INSPECT THOROUGHLY, CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS CAREFULLY, CHECK WIRING FOR ANY BUMPS(CORROSION), INSIDE WIRE INSULATION ! CHECK FUSES, PUMP RELAY ,DOES YOUR SENDER WIRE GO TO RELAY ? FOLLOW IT FROM PUMP TO WHERE IT GOES, BE PATIENCE !!! KEEP IT SIMPLE, LAUGH ABOUT IT, YOU WILL FIND THE PROBLEM ! TODAY YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL !!! YOUR SURE YOU HOOK UP THE WIRES TO SENDER BEFORE YOU PUT THEM INTO TANK ? JUST KIDDING ! WAS YOUR WIRE HARNESS THAT PLUGS INTO PUMP /SENDER PLUG IN GOOD SHAPE ??? THEY USUALLY GO BAD !!! REPLACE THAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO FOR IT,GOOD LUCK !

I have somes REV. problem. When I check whit the scanner throw me 2 codes: P1133 / P0325. Its a Outback S/W 2000 2.5l.Thanks for everything.


Off hand sounds like the wires. The first is the O2 sensor getting slow response. The other is your knock sensor. If the wires are in bad shape or coroded conection on the knock sensor this will confuse the computer and change timing and idle to correct it until it gets a good reading from knock sensor. This also slows the response to the exhaust system giving the sensor a slow or poor reading of exhaust gases. Hope this helps and have a good day.
