GQ Fuel gauge not lekker

Post by Jules » 04 Sep 2014 19:20

Hi everyone

When my GQ fuel aanwyser gets to 1/4 then it starts acting erratic, soos n skoppelmaai "seesaw" , die aanwyser beweeg tussen dolleeg en kwart vol sodat jy nooit weet hoev brandstof daar in is nie.

Is daar n sensor wat mens kan skoonmaak

Ek dink die sensor in die tenk maak nie behoorlik kontak nie as die tenk so leeg is - die arm beweeg miskien te veel.

Oom Mack , As dit n earth problem was sou dit nie net tussen kwart en leeg pla nie.

Die tenk sensor bestaan uit n reostaat wat met n arm gekoppel aan n dryfballetjie die vlak meet.

Daar is n stuk weerstand draad opgewen om n nie geleidende basis. die een kant van die draad is ge aard en die ander kant is oop.
Die bewegende kontak punt skuif op en af soos die tenk vlak beweeg. Hoe verder die kontak van die aard kant af raak , hoe groter die weerstand. Die instrument by die meters gebuik dan n bimetal strokie on die wystertjie te laat beweeg.

Jules. wat gebeur is dat die bewegende kontak nie meer behoorlik raak aan die weerstand draad as die tenk leeg word nie.
Die tenk sensor kry jy onder die mat agter in die laai area binne in die tenk.

Jy moet die armpie uithaal en effens buig om weer goed kontak te maak. Partykeer is die draadjie ook af.

Wees baie seker dat al die aard drade weer baie goed terug gesit word en moenie n vuurhoutjie trek om gou te kyk hoeveel vuilgoed daar in die tenk le nie.
Altwee sal dieselfde resultaat he.

You cannot trust the fuel meter. Looking at it if it works is depressing.

I work on milage only...

Let me know if we must get you a replacement from Dawid.
