Question about 2003 Yamaha Road Star Silverado
I have 2003 Yamaha Silverado SE and the fuel gauge no longer works. When I filled up the tank on the last trip I took, the fuel gauge only showed about 1/2 to 3/4 full and it took a while for the low fuel indicator lamp to stop blinking. By the end of my trip, the gauge would not reflect any fuel in the tank and the light stopped blinking altogether.
I rode from Minneapolis to Western Massachusetts and back on this trip and I encountered a lot of rain, some frost, heavy winds and the temperatures were anywhere from 34 to 60 degrees.
Could any of these things have contributed to this failure?
Hi, 94CountryBoy and the usual suspects are:
1. Blown instrument fuse.
2. Faulty sending unit.
3. Faulty wiring between sending unit and gauge.
4. Faulty ground or power connection.
5. Bad fuel gauge.

Check resistance of fuel sensor,connector should be under seat at rear of tank. If open sensor may be bad.Check the connector for good contact.Check with a good dealer about problem ,most will give you some help if you buy your parts from them.
