Thank you all for help. I tried today disconnecting the sender unit wiring plug and plugged it into another that i have purchased,( As mentioned in above post )
I held the float about half way and put key in ignition turned to number 2 but i still get fuel light flashing and no fuel showing on gauge.
I have tested the new sender unit and it matches up with the readings in above post, so i'm sure its not the sender unit.
I found the post on this site about the tin foil trick to get any error codes
I tried this but couldn't get it to work nothing was coming up on the dash, it was just the same as when i normally put ignition on, but i noticed i couldn't enter settings on dash (speed warnings etc) everything else worked mpg seat belt warnings etc, but i just couldn't enter the settings menu (when you hold the i button for a few seconds) but i could access this on my old gauges.
So i took new clocks out fitted my old ones and i tried holding the float on sender unit at half way again turned ignition on and still nothing.
I tried the tin foil trick again but for some reason i cant get it to work.
I put foil in put key in ignition turn to number 2 wait ten seconds and my dash is just as it normally would be (mileage and MPG showing)So i cant get any error codes
So today i filled my tank up and checked reading and i got 021 ( I had my multi metre on wrong settings last time sorry )
So i am sure now its not my sender unit, think i might of bought another dodgy dash as with my old clocks back in i can enter settings again
Im thinking of just buying a cheap fuel gauge of e-bay and wiring that up as i dont know what else it could be.
Thank you all for help
If ever i do sort it out i will update but thankyou again
