Is it possible to restore an LCD gauge?
However, not all gauges can be restored. If you see what looks like dark/inky spots on the bottom corners of your gauges, that can indicate that the LCD Glass has separated, and liquid crystal has leaked. This cannot be repaired. Send pictures if you’re not sure. No charge if the gauge cannot be repaired.
Is there a charge for a faulty gauge?
No charge if the gauge cannot be repaired. If the gauge is determined faulty after Polarization replacement, there is no charge. NO RISK! Should I buy new, or restore my existing gauges?
Why are my LCD gauges cracking and cracking?
UV rays fade the polarization on the LCD gauge, and salt/sun cause crazing and cracking to the acrylic gauge face. We offer an an inexpensive alternative to buying new. What does it cost and What’s the risk?
What causes a Yamaha outboard gauge to crack?
We specialize in Yamaha (and other) Outboard Multi-function Gauge Restoration and Repair. Constant exposure to the elements is tough on these expensive instruments. UV rays fade the polarization on the LCD gauge, and salt/sun cause crazing and cracking to the acrylic gauge face. We offer an an inexpensive alternative to buying new.
What are the symptoms of a faulty fuel gauge?
The first and most common symptom to have when you are having a faulty fuel gauge sender is that the fuel gauge behaves erratically and not related to the actual fuel level. It can first go from full and then to empty and the second after that going to half tank for example.
Can a bad fuel gauge sender send a bad signal?
Another, less common, symptom of an issue with the fuel gauge sender is a fuel gauge that is stuck on full. A faulty fuel gauge resistor can send a bad signal to the instrument cluster which can cause the gauge to permanently read full. This is an issue, as the driver needs to know the accurate fuel level of the vehicle as to not run out of fuel.
What do I do if my gas gauge is not working?
In most cases, to gain access to the fuel tank sending unit mount / fuel pump mounting hole, you’ll need to drop the gas tank down. Be sure to do this when there is either minimal gas in the vehicle, or it’s been siphoned out.
How does a fuel level sensor work on a car?
The sensor has a level floating arm which feels the level of the fuel inside the tank. Then the fuel gauge sender is sending the information directly to the instrument cluster and the fuel gauge. In some cases, the information got calculated in the engine control unit first before sending it to the fuel gauge.
