Default LW 200 Fuel Gauge

Hey Guys, I was just informed this morning by my son that the fuel gauge isn't working in the wagon. He filled it up yesterday and said it was fine. He took the dog to the vet this morning and noticed it was sitting on empty. Now before I go tearing into the wiring on this sucker, can anyone tell me if there's a dedicated fuse to the gauge? If so, great, if not, then I guess it's just going to the "drive 300 miles" and fill it up deal. I'm still working on my house and don't have time to fool with a trivial matter such as this. I'm going out now to check the fuses and will report back if I find one that's popped. If I don't post back within 30 minutes, then that means I didn't find a fuse.

Historically from minimal research I just did (hoping you were inside by now) it is either the fuel sending unit or a BCM issue.

If dash lights and/or odometer start freaking out, it is likely a BCM issue.

I'm leaning towards sending unit, as most people have erratic fuel gauge readings when the BCM flips out.

Only the shadow knows

Not the BCM. I was hoping for that. No other issues except the damned gauge. It'll just have to wait until this spring. I don't give a crap at this point in time. Still got two more rooms to put crown molding up in and one more to paint. Couple of closets to paint and put down some thresh holds and I'll be done with this mother. I'm tired and cranky and out of beer.

Well, I don't know what the hell happened, but maybe me pounding on the dash board helped yesterday. Philip had a 150 mile round trip to take a postal exam today and said the fuel gauge is working again. I'm guessing there's a loose connection in the dash. I'll check it out some day when I'm done with home renovations.
