Factory CJ fuel gauge problems...
I have driven CJs for 20 years and never had a problem with the factory fuel gauge--lucky me. My Jeep has a Painless wiring harness in it. Recently I took the dash apart looking for a parasitic drain but when I put it back together, the gauges did not work. Having gone through gauge testing online, everything pointed me to the fuel sender. I dropped the tank and replaced the sender and the gauges. Verified my ground to the frame is good. When I hooked it back up it still blows the 'Gauges' fuse. With the speedometer out of the dash the gas gauge reads full. As soon as I ground the speedometer case, it blows the fuse. Ready to set the Jeep on fire and roll it into the street! Please help!
