Is it normal for the low-fuel warning light not to work after installing the Facet fuel pump?
No. Did you reconnect the wire that goes into the left tank?
The connections to the left tank are the following:
fuel pump power, fuel level sensor.
? He's putting on a Facet, which means this is a carbed 950. There is no fuel pump power line going to the left tank. The only electrical hookup on the left tank is the fuel level sensor.
Maybe it's an SE?
Oh, yep. Could be.
Ah yeah sorry lads, it's a '05 carb'ed 950. The Odometer's sort of working ok, though It's not autmatically switching to TRIP F when fuel has gone into reserve + there's no warning light coming on.
Check the wiring to the sensor. I have also heard that these sensors can eventually go bad.
First of just check you have not plugged the fuel pump wires to the low fuel sensor plug. They have the same type of connectors.
If that was not the issue, I suspect it has nothing to do with the sensor. It has a very simple job to turn a switch on or off. So if your trip meter for low fuel comes up, that means the sensor is sending the signal correctly to the instrument panel.
I put my money on burnt LED light for low fuel, or faulty instrument panel.
You can bypass the sensor by connecting the two wire at fuel level sensor's plug (on the bike side of course) Brown and Brown-Red
What is the low-fuel/reserve warning look like on an '07 990 adventure? I just bought the bike from another inmate and ran it out of gas on the way home. Should I have gotten a yellow warning light? Or is it more subtle than that (and something I probably did not see without my glasses).
Sorry if I sidetracked this thread, but I have yet to track down an owner;s manual.
There is a yellow LED indicator which will come on then then odometer will show "F" and the mileage accrued since low fuel threshold was reached. Typically this means you have somewhere between 25-50 miles remaining before running dry.
Thanks. That is what I figured. In my case, the yellow LED did not come on and I ran the tank dry. I guess I'll need to figure out if I have a loose wire or bad sensor.
If it goes to Trip F automatically cant it be broken low fuel led? Will that light up with ignition on? Long winter so cant remember.
The yellow LED on the panel lights up when the ignition is turned on. I don't recall if the trip meter went to Trip F - it may have and I did not notice. I wear reading glasses, but not while I'm on the bike. Hence, the Trip readout is a bit of a blur. And since this is a new bike for me (bought the day before), I did not know to look for Trip F. I was also in the middle of a single lane construction zone when this all happened so I was a bit distracted.
BTW - I don't have an owner's manual so I'm still trying to sort through the bike.
You can download them and in case opening needs a password, Katoom is your password.
I downloaded the manual last night. Thanks.
My post below was wrong. Although the orange "FI" LED lights up when the ignition turns on, neither the yellow fuel LED nor the red temp LED lights up. I'll check the fuses when I get home.
