Hino FD 1024, 500 Series 2008.

Hi guys,
This morning I filled up the fuel tank but the fuel gage on the dashboard remains at E, empty,
Any suggestions to what might be causing this fault???

Hi greasytshirt,
I don’t mean to be a pain in the butt but it’s the fuel sensor, the small round part that’s bolted to the top of the fuel tank?
And if so, all I will need to do it’s, unplug the sensor, unbolt the part and replace it with a new one, correct?

Yes and yes.

Where’s the harness connector located?
The plug/wires that connect to the sensor.

where Do the wires that leave the fuel sensor on the tank connect to??
It’s a long wire that seems to go under the cabin somewhere??
If I could find where those wires connect to I could unplugged them as well to see if the gage will swing back up.

You need to connect the 2 wires together and if the gauge goes to full then the sensor is bad.

Fuel Level Sensor was the culprit!!
I just connected both wires and the gauge went right up to full.
You guys are really good, I’m impressed, right on the money again.
I love this website!!!
Took me a bit to understand what actually had to be done but FlyingVan made it cristal clear.
Thank you greasytshirt & FlyingVan, you guys Rock
