Fuel Gauge Sender: Adjustments

Before undertaking adjustment, fault tracing should be carried out on fuel gauge and fuel level sensor.

To carry out adjustment, use service kit P/N 1 398 171-7, which contains a potentiometer with necessary leads and sockets together with a connector
with an in-circuit resistor.

1. Connect resistor:
-

Remove battery negative lead.

-

Unplug the 3-pole connector between gauge and sensor in trunk.

-

Connect the connector with resistor to the gauge leads, as shown in illustration.

2. Connect potentiometer:
-

Cut off the gray-white lead with the 7-pole connector on the instrument panel.

-

Strip and twist the ends of the leads.

-

Connect potentiometer by means of the sockets. See illustration. 

3. Check reading:
-

Reconnect battery negative lead and turn on ignition without starting engine.

-

Take reading. Pointer should be just touching the red area.

-

If reading is correct, proceed to step 5.
