2005 with bad fuel strip

Post by jsuttin »

I'm just outside the 12 year extended warranty for this known issue.  I am a creature of habit so I feel like I could effectively manage the lack of information about my fuel level through the trip odometer and my practice of filling up after every ride before I roll it into the garage.  My larger concern is the system alert (yellow exclamation mark).  Eventually I could teach myself to ignore it but my concern is that I would disregard a legitimate system alert around tire pressure, temperature, etc.  If there was a way to disable to fuel gauge completely and the associated system alert, that would work for me.  Anybody every have that done?

I had this on a 2009 but not with any warning triangle showing.  I came across mountains of this failure in my earlier life as a parts manager but can never remember customers mentioning it.  Could be me loosing the plot of course or have you something else going o .

Has anyone tried "zapping" the fuel sensor to fix it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYk7CoFj8Zg

Hi, I had mine replaced under warranty as it was bought from a dealer and came with 12months. Found this on interweb might be a solution. Good luck.
