Question about Protron TPL-C01

1 Answer

Stand broke Proton had me send the unit back to them in Sept. 2007. They recv'd it and every time I call they say- it will be 7-10 days. The last time I called was on March 17th and they said it would be 40 days. I just spoke with Max and Jack and they said just be a little more patient, that they are working on getting the unit in. I told them my patience was at its end and I wished to speak w/someone higher up to get my money back. So sorry no refunds...I asked them how long was I expected to wait??1 week 1 month one year. The only answer I got was just a little longer. Yea right. If I had known this I never would have sent the unit back and would have jerry-rigged the stand. What a LOUSY LOUSY company. I am so frustrated, but my hands are tied and they are in the drivers seat. I bought this unit directly from Proton/Spectroniq, not thru SNBC.

    I've reported them to the BBB - found out that is really no big deal. Consumers are at their mercy. Wish I could hurt them in their pocketbook - actually wouldn't mind putting them out of business.......

sounds like either the ground wire at the fuel sending unit is bad or your sending unit in the tank broke.
