    Default Charade petrol gauge

    AOA Pakwheels,
    I've a charade 88 with so called Lexus wala meter. The problem is, jb petrol fill krao it the needle moves n shows the correct level of petrol. Jb koi kraab road pr aao with bumps, needle apni jaga pr nahi rehti which is not normal. Reserve b show nahi hota. The needle nevah comes bak to normal.
    What am I suppose to do now? i actually visited an electrician but he says k tabk kholna parega to find out the problem. Is it so? Or shall i chek the wires n all properly?
    thnx

    normally petrol meter are equipped with a bimetallic strip that gets heat up when operative, it get itself on/off thru the bimetallic strip which is being heated on operation. the reason is petrol in tank shakes up petrol gauge causing it to relay different readings, which is happening to your car. i guess if it is present in your meter, then your meter is wrongly connected etiher or it is not wokring properly.

    for reference, check this.
