Hi I have problems with my mitsubishi dehumidifier Oasis Elite MJ-E-142NX-A1 The water tank full light stays on even though the tank is empty. I have emptied the water and replaced the container care


Sounds like your float is stuck in the full position, or the sensor that shows full is stuck on full.
If tank is empty but shows full, problem lies where full signal is coming from.

My gas gage reads empty but stays lit up on 2005flht


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.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy and my gas gauge has been flowing up and down to empty and full recently it has stayed on empty. How do I fix it?


Ensure that all of the wire connections are clean, secure and corrosion-free.

  • 2 Check your fuel gauge fuse if the gauge's indicator stays on empty when your turn on the ignition. If the fuse is good, join the sending unit connector to ground. Replace the sending unit if the gauge indictor moves to the full line.
  • 3 Ground the terminal located on the back of the fuel gauge with a jumper wire if the indicator doesn't move. If it does move, consider replacing the wire between the fuel gauge and the sending unit. A poor ground is frequently responsible for fuel gauge problems.
  • 4 Release the wire that connects to the fuel tank's sending unit. Confirm that there's no worn insulation that would permit wire contact to the body or frame. A fuel gauge reading of full generally indicates a problem with the tank unit, not the wiring.

    Car of year 1998, when tank is full or medium from fuel, guage shows empty. When tank is completely empty, the guage shows full. Guage is of digital type with the bars. What can I do ? Any tests I...


    Digital gauge also gets its input for fuel level from a float in the tank. Here the culprit can be that float because the error is systematic i.e., full on empty and empty on full/half. If the reading was erratic then it was something to do with IC in the bars display panel.

    Dash pannel fuel indicator lamp shows empty but tank full


    This would be very common of the fuel pump and level module in the tank. The module from auto zone runs about $280. This must be purchased as a module and replaced. The tank then needs to be dropped out of the car to make this repair. Let me know if you need further instructions to complete this.

    Fuel indicator


    The sending unit in the tank has gone bad. The tank will have to be removed, and the sender be replaced.
