    Fuel Level Resistor

    does anyone know exactly what the fuel level resistor does on a bike?

    if you dont know what one is, here is a pic:

    well, on my bike, it's not plugged up, and i cant find anything to plug it to.

    i just got a different wiring harness, but alas, still i see no plug for that damn thing...

    i am not getting any error codes when i "boot" into dealer mode... (yea, im a computer guy, what can i say)

    HELP!!!
    thanks.

    WEll, I personally have only a guess...probably a dumb one at that...but went to a couple of search engines and nothing really hit back...it sounds like maybe a sensor for fuel cut off...you know how if you hit a big bump or get into an accident with a car, you have to pop your trunk and pull the manual fuel pump override to turn your fuel pump back on? Maybe this is like a tilt sensor or something if you tip...who know, to me from what I gathered it sounds like a sensor that 'resists' fuel from traveling from your tank, to your injectors. Good luck, hope I was of some help.

    It's just a standard resistor for the fuel level switch.

    The fuel level switch causes the fuel light to come on when you have less than a certain amount of gas left.

    so, that was probably my problem with the fuel light with that bike then, eh?

    i figured that was it... but oh well, i guess that really doesnt matter anymore now does it? (being that the bike was stolen)

    Nah, it don't matter anymore. Maybe they'll run out of gas in the booines somewhere!

    Tell me more about your bike and I'll see if I can check around Montgomery/Prattville/Millbrook area.
