Sub Tank problem

Postby JohnST » 31 Mar 2015 20:20

Howzit guys

Nice forum. :thumbup:

I got my patrol (2001 4500 GRX) a while ago.

Absolutely love her.

Upgraded suspension and done proper service (everything I could)

What needs to be done is altinator bearing are starting to sing so will recon this month and then...

The sub tank light has been on since I got her and it's not working.

Tested there is power going to the switch. Replaced switch with original nissan new one, still no luck so now I need some advice...

Please :think:

John,

Try and disconnect the battery for the evening for the engine management to reset. 90% of the time it will sort the sub-tank problems out.

Cedric, Tinus never gets lost.
