I have a 1996 Mercedes SL500 R129 convertible and the fuel light on the gauge stays on showing empty when there is plenty of fuel in the tank, about 5 months ago we installed a new genuine and correct fuel sender unit and the gauge worked correctly till now, have checked all the fuses and no problem there, the black lead to the top of sender unit has no power going to it and this was checked with the ignition turned on, how do i fix the dashboard fuel gague to have the lights go out and give the correct reading again ?
