HI! I got a used 2011 Signature a couple of weeks ago, all is good except the fuel gage, trim gage and speedo gage. The tachometer works fine and all gages move intermittently when key is turned to "on". All gages light up but constantly flicker. Tach flickers also, but always works as well as digital display beneath. During running, fuel, trim and speedo have no readout. I tried to jump the fuel sending unit in the bilge with key in "on" position but gage remains at empty. I looked behind the gage panel and all wires are intact, any thoughts? suggestions?
Hi everyone. I've been a bit quiet for a while.Finally got around to performing a sneaky calibration graph of the pretty useless fuel gage on our Sig 270. Over the past couple of years I have been able to calculate my fuel consumption fairly accurately using the information from the engine hours and amount of fuel added each time I fill up cmpletely. I have also been keeping a log of what the gage says each time we return to port unrelated to filling up. I was then able to calculate the true amount of fuel in the tank from my engine hours log using the fuel consumption (40 liters / hour) and I plotted what the gage had been showing against the true quantity (see pic). As expected it is far from linear and in fact fits a polynomial curve. The importabt point is that when the gagae reads say 4 marks - i.e. half full there is actually 200 liters - 2/3 full in the tank. I ma pasting this graph alongside my log book on the boat to stop me having a nervous breakdown each time I look at the fuel gage! Enjoy!! Simon
