I have almost given up what seems like a very simple problem on my 61 Cloud. My mechanic replaced the fuel sender which was not working with a new Jaguar sender for a XK140. It looked almost identical and it fitted perfectly. I thought it was working as it showed about 1/2. I filled up the car yesterday, and the gauge immediately showed past full but really was about 3/4 full. Second problem was the low fuel light now glows countiously. Before, it was not on. Today, switched the wires but the gauge remained the same. I then switched the wires back to the way
they were. The gauge then showed almost "0" with low fuel light still on. I then put the wires together, but the gauge still registers "0". I used my test light at the sender and get nothing on each terminal. The sender has a good ground. The gauge works when I check the oil level. Any guidance would be great as I am at a dead end on what I thought would be a simple problem!

Hi Richard
Have you sorted this issue yet?
I am not an auto electrician - far from it.
Do you still have the original unit? If so can it be repaired? Do you have the correct wiring diagram to assist you?
Regards
David

David,

The "new" XK140 sender was defective. The company sent me a replacement, and it now works perfectly. My mechanic removed the original sender;therefore, not sure if he saved it. I apologize for not updating!

Richard
