Thanks Doc, I do have a meter but don't know how to use it (sic) . I can try going back to 6 volts and see what happens, but I STILL would like to know why the test light flashed when I probed the sender wire. Actually a better way to describe it is that it pulsed, as in flashing on and off and on and off? All lights are wired 12v with appropriate bulbs.

>>The SENDER wires NEVER have power on them for Fuel gauges (like putting a 12 volt fuse on 50 sticks of liquid dynomite..) FUEL SENDERS are always referenced to ground through a potentiometer..>>

not sure what you mean does it matter whether it's 6v or 12v as far as 50 sticks of dynamite senario?


BTW went to the light rather than chime for key on /not running. Thanks again.
