Fuel indicator light stays on!

Hi Guys,
I’ve got an issue, my fuel indicator light stays on!
And no, it’s not my fuel level sender, I sure the sender is OK so it must be something else anybody got an idea where to look??

Thanks in advance!
Willem

What kind of bike is it?
How do you know that it isn't the sending unit?
If you have tested the unit, and it checks out okay, my guess is you likely have a short in the system allowing an open circuit. These are pretty simple systems, really.

It’s a 748, the sender is new and tested on another bike.
Yes I know it’s simple that’s why I don’t know where to look!
When unplugging the sender the light goes off.

Please don’t hold me to this. From memory the Ducati sender is a negative cut not a positive cut like in most bikes. If the sender wire in the main harness is broken the light stays on.
