Most likely either the sending unit (under the tank) is bad or the light burnt out. Easiest fix is to keep an eye on your trip meter and use that to determine when you need to hit the gas station.Gracie said:My low fuel indicator on my 02 MS$ does not come on. Any ideas on how to fix it? I have no idea. Could it be a programming/software issue that could be reset?
Yep, there is one. But the coolest feature of this light is the actual sending unit itself. It's held in by a plastic compression nut, and is located directly above the back cylender. When the nut breaks, fuel pours all over the back cylender...truerider said:There's a low fuel light warning?
"reserve" on a monster isn't a reserve in the conventional sense - it's simply the level below which the low fuel light comes on. There is no interuption of flow, or any switching that occurs.Gracie said:Thanks guys. Hey, here another related question. When the tank goes from the main to the reserve, is there a very brief moment when the bike does not get full gas, and for a second you cant get any power, as though you are running out of gas?
Yep, mine to. I get 114 miles out until the yellow like comes on. It's either to soon, or a HUGE reserve.C Fresh said:Can't really help you, but can tell you that I have heard it to be a fairly common problem. Mine comes on too soon, the tank is 3.6 gallons and I have never put more than 2 gallons in it at a time.
My connector only has two wires howie. Is that the problem?howie said:If you lift the tank you will see a connector with four wires. Two are for the fuel pump and two are for the sending unit. Off hand I can't tell you which is which without a wiring diagram, but if you someone with a diagram could chime in (Nick?), take those two wires and brige them. Turn the key on. If you now have a low fuel light it is the $en$or.
That's really the best way to go. Here, it's so sunny sometimes that you couldn't see the light even if it did come on. So, I use only my trip meter.pitbull said:My light died a couple years ago and I never bothered to get it fixed. I also go by the trip odometer with no problems.
