    Narec problems with fuel guage and speedo need help bad!

    Does anyone have a problem with their fuel guage not acurrate? I have a narec fuel guage (lambo) and its not accurate with how much gas I have, in my fiero/lambo. Any ideals?

    Does anyone have contact info like a email or phone for vdo? My speedo from narec, 260 mph isn't calibrated, so I never know how fast im going.

    it's wired wrong and the speedo there are lot of wrong doing as well. I don't think you can't use GM speed sensor direct to elec.VDO. if you are not using ECM.

    I'm glad I bought my from UK and I got a 3pages of e-mail,how to and explanation that is not on install instruction.
    btw do you have internal fuel pump or mechanical on your Cad engine.

    I'm working on my VDO speedo right now so when finished I'll tell you how's done. OH, since my time is very limited to work on it it may take a week or two.

    Did you read the instructions on how to calibrate the speedo? I posted them a few weeks ago when you first asked for help. It is really easy, just follow a car at whatever speed, let's say 40 KMH. Push the button and until it reads 40KMH on your speedo.

    The fuel gauge may need the tank removed to set it up properly. I have to make a few bends to the lever inside the tank to make it read properly.
    The only way to know how it is set now is to adjust the resistance when full and then when it is empty. Not an easy way to do it.
    Take the 20 minutes to remove the tank and work the sending unit in your hands.

    Jim, my speedo was going up and down like a RPM gauge even stand still. , they told me I have to have a insulated cable (separate from other wires that caries pulsing curent such as coil,fuel,fans etc)
    so I bought a cable and rewire maybe tomorow)
    Jim, I'll e mail you the reply from ETB instruments if you want,to see what they said.
