gas gauge died ... now it works again
About 12 nights ago, here in Raleigh,NC , the temp went down to 23 degrees. The following day, I got on my 2001 VN750 to goto work and I see that the speedometer and also the gas gauge were dead. The speedometer, I figured maybe the cable broke. OK. The gas gauge needle is permanent on Full. My tank was full at that moment but after 2 days it still said FULL. After that day there were at least 4 more nights 30 degrees or less. I figure if it works on a fuse, its blown, or it might be a wire gone bad.
But today, I see the gas needle moving again! After 12 days of not working. ITs at 3/4 full. I thought for sure a fuse was blown or wire was not conducting anymore.
How can something I thought was "dead" revive like that ? I haven't looked closely at the speedo , I figure thats a new cable I have to buy, but can any of you vulcan veterans explain to me what happened with the gas gauge ?
