I have just replaced the petcock and now the engine will not start. There are two wires, one black and one yellow, that go to the fuel gauge. I know that yellow goes with yellow, but where does the black one go? The engine will try to start, but it won't catch. what do i do?

Hello,
Generally speaking on Suzuki's, the yellow wire is +12vdc and Black is a ground wire. You should connect it to the closest frame connection. It also might appear that you have another wiring problem in that same area due to the no start issue. Make sure all wires in the immediate area where you were working are connected properly and none were forgotten! You should verify that the gas does flow freely from your repair as that also could cause the start issue if no gas is flowing!

My car is not starting and thinking it's the fuel pump. Try jumping it and still not go. Alternator and starter are fine. So I've removed the fuel pump from the tank. There's a white connector that...


Four wires the the sender unit. One will have 12 volts all the time with key on. This is the fuel gauge. One will have power for 2 seconds when the key is turned on. This is the fuel pump. Two of them will have a constant ground. Grounds will be black, black with a colored stripe on it, or have a black stripe. Check the harness plug plug for voltage, again it only last for 2 seconds. If you have voltage at the wire. replace the pump. If not, probe the wire about 3 inches back from the plug, check for voltage again. If you have voltage there repair or replace the plug. Most wires break right behind the harness plug.

Look the fuel pump is the gas tank of a 1996 ford


On most models the fuel pump wires are pink-black and black. The third wire is usually yellow and its for the gas gauge.

K my 2005flht harleydavidson gage quit working and only fuel gage I have power to it and light work


The fuel gauge sender is mounted internally in the fuel tank. There is a three pin connector that will have a Yellow/White wire in it (the middle wire) under the center console. This is the sender wire. Connect an ohm meter between this wire and the black wire and check for the following readings:
If fuel tank is full, the reading should be 7-14 ohms. An empty tank should have a 74-95 ohm resistance. A half full tank will be approximately 30-38 ohms.
If you ground this wire that comes from the harness, the fuel gauge should read full. If not, then fault may be in wiring or the fuel gauge itself.
Remove the front fairing to gain access to the gauge. You should have 12 volts across the orange/white and black wires. If not, check accessory fuse. If 12 volts present ground the yellow/white wire at the gauge. Gauge should read full scale. If not, gauge faulty. If gauge reads full scale, check wiring from gauge to three pin plug under tank console.

Hooking up the gas tank the gas line to petcox the vac line to petcox what is the other line what do it go to this is on a 1982 gs650 suziki


The other line goes to the fuel gauge overflow right next to the petcock vacuum line on the tank. Big nipple on petcock goes to fuel line leading between carb 2 and 3. Small nipple on petcock goes to the brass nipple on the front of carb number 2. The other hose hooks up to the nipple coming from the fuel sending unit and routes down below the battery and ends. It's there in case the fuel sending unit leaks the hose will route the gasoline away from a hot engine instead of pouring out right on top of it. The nipple to the fuel sending unit should be positioned pointing directly at the petcock on the bottom of the tank. In case you don't know what I mean by sending unit it's the big round circle on the left side of the bottom of the tank with 2 wires coming from it.

1990 gmc K1500 5.7L, temp. gauge not working:


To review, you have two temp sensors, one for the gauge on the dash and one for the computer. If you unplug the sensor for the computer the reading will be minus 30 degrees or over 300 which will make it very hard to start. Unplugging the sensor for the gauge would have no effect on the computer.
According to the wiring diagram, the wire for the temp gauge is green, and the wires for the temp sensor for the computer are yellow and black.

While driving motorcycle stalled.


Sounds like you've lost either spark or fuel. Take another set of spark plugs and plug them into your spark plug wires. Do not remove the plugs from the head. Spin the engine and watch for spark. If no spark, first check the "run/start" switch. If it's alright, you need to check the fuse for you ignition system to see if it's blown.

On fuel injected engines, you have a fuel pump. Check the fuse for the fuel pump. Listen for the fuel pump to run when the switch is turned on.

If you bike is carburated, check the petcock. In 1996, H-D went to a vacuum operated fuel petcock. These things are notorious for giving problems. Either the diaphragm gets a hole in it and shuts off the fuel or the vacuum hose comes loose. Check the vacuum hose that comes off the back of the carburetor and runs to the VOES switch and the petcock. You may have to remove the petcock to service the diphragm in it.

If you remove the petcock, there are four small bolts on the backside. Remove the four bolts, lift the plate and theres a spring and a diaphragm behind the plate. Check the diaphragm for holes. If you find hole, replace the diaphragm. If not, replace everything and test the petcock by applying vacuum to the rear of the petcock while blowing though the fuel line nipple. When you appy the vacuum, the petcock should be open. With no vacuum, petcock should be closed. Good Luck, Steve

Bike won't start


Start by narrowing it down to fire or fuel problem. Pull a sparkplug, ground it to the head, and crank the engine. If there is no spark, then test the plug wires, coil, then ignition module in order down the line until you find where the power stops. If you have spark, then check the petcock to carb for fuel. If there is no fuel from the petcock, then it will be the petcock filter or the petcock is bad. If you do have fuel to the carb, but no to the cylinders, then the carb may need to be cleaned and/or rebuilt. Try these and let me know.
