in
the table, replace the regulator.
Level gauge wiring check
e
Disconnect the 3-pin connector from the voltage
regulator.
eConnect
a
voltmeter
to the 3-pin connector on the
main wiring harness side as shown in the table, and
turn on the
ignition
switch
.
If the voltmeter reading
does not correspond to the table, the wiring is bad
.
Check
the leads and connectors, and replace or repair
any damaged wiring.

Open or ground the lead
to check the
circuit.
e
lf
the
above "E"
and
"F" readings
are
correct,
the water
temperature sender
is
bad. If these readings are not
obtained, the trouble is with the water temperature
gauge, voltage regulator, or wiring. See
Pg.
261 for
voltage regulator
inspection,
and Pg. 262 for wiring
check.
Water
temperature sender check
e
Remove the water temperature sender.
e
Suspend the
sender
in a container of water so that
the temperature
-
sensing projection and threaded
portion are submerged
.
The switch must not touch
the container sides or bottom.
e
Suspend an accurate thermometer
in
the
water.
It
must not touch the container, either.
e
Place
the container
over a source of heat and gradually
raise the temperature of the water while stirring the
water gently
.
