As far as I am aware the power source is at the water tank end, I had a similar problem and I removed and cleaned the long sensor thing that fits into your water tank, if your tank is under the seat then its a doddle remove, good clean, make connectors shiny or replace, this cured mine, now whether this was the sores of the problem I will never know but it now works.

...who ever uses these things? I think they only give a very crude idea of the water level, never use mine and it works perfectly well. I find that with my 30 litre carry around container that I fill from the nearest tap that I find and then fill the vans tank from that.... this gives me an idea of what I have used and how much is in holding tank. My overflow has been blocked off and now overflows where water is poured in. In all pretty accurate for me. :D

Me... Especially when wilding it. It just saves me having to remove the seat to check the water level.

Fair enough they aren't that accurate but at least I have some idea of how much is left and when I'm going to have to fill up again ;)

Would you believe it...just got up to give it a test and.... it don't work! hahahah. I notice that on mine there is a calibrating dial to make the needle move full left or right, I think that is what put me off of using it as I could not get it accurate enough. Well....having said all that, i think i'll go out and give the tank a top up. Cheers.
