Does that mean you've done it? If so, can you tell me what all is needed to wire it up and what gauge works properly? I just replaced the stock gas cap with a solid one, because it was broke and leaked gas.
You guys ROCK! Just finished installing a fuel gauge in my 05 700XP. Dealer said I was crazy and that there was no sending unit in the 05. I found the purple wire tied to the wiring harness near the accessory power plug in the dash. Estimated the fuel level in the tank at about a third full and took an ohm reading and got a reading of 34 ohms. Filled the tank, did another reading and got a reading of 87 ohms.
I picked up a 2 5/8 inch 0-90 ohm Stewart Warner gauge on ebay, followed the installation instructions and now have a functioning fuel gauge in the dash where the safety/warning decal used to be. I put it there as I don't consider a fuel gauge something that requires constant attention and it is out of the way.
Just wanted to say thanks to those who figured it out in the first place!
I have a 2005 500 camo and it did not have a sending unit in the tank.
I had to install one from Napa.
The worst part was cuting the hole in the tank without getting the plastic shavings into the tank.
I'll go talk to the guys at NAPA.
I think I see what your saying, sounds like the sender is sort of a "all purpose /multi application" type of sender.
I was thinking you were buying something for a paticular vehicle and then adapting it to the ranger :?
