That looks like a easy fix. Good Work! Did it completely die, or intermittent? What version letter? Mine has faulted a few times but always comes back, hasn't done it lately.
Mine is a "B". It starts to go termittent when my fuel is low. Then it reads FULL just about 3L left i the tank.That looks like a easy fix. Good Work! Did it completely die, or intermittent? What version letter? Mine has faulted a few times but always comes back, hasn't done it lately.
Great job! I attempted that but ruined the sensor trying to drill out the epoxy (i missed). I bought a new one (D model I think) and installed it myself. If that goes out I'll try again now that I know it is possible.I couldn't stand not having a fuel guage anymore... From what i read in forums this is a common problem. Ducati keeps replacing them but but still fails shortly after. Being me I want to know why it fails. So instead of sending it to the dealer I did it myself.
Getting the fuel sender out was easy. Just remove the tank, drain, and unscrew the sender. Opening the sender unit proved to be a bit challenging as from the factory they put epoxy on the bottom cap hiding the screws. I managed to drill the epoxy and carefully opened the circuit board.
I did some test and found the break on the first two sensors. I soldered an jumper wire and all was good. Sealed it and assembled. I NOW HAVE A WORKING FUEL GUAGE AGAIN. For how long i dont know. I will just buy a used sensor from ebay , do thesame and keep it as spare.
That would piss me off no end; if you book my bike in for a half-day job, I expect it to be done in a half-day, and there's no reason for a dealer to stop you riding with a busted fuel sensor.Downside was I lost use of the bike for 2 weeks
Omaha has it. I screwed up on the drop off for the bike somewhat, but they could have ordered the part sight unseen, they are a frequently replaced item. Like many things Ducati, they are shipped from Italy.That would piss me off no end; if you book my bike in for a half-day job, I expect it to be done in a half-day, and there's no reason for a dealer to stop you riding with a busted fuel sensor.
Meanwhile, I need to get one for my bike and replace it myself (half-day job). The dealers parts computer was "down" yesterday so no joy. I tried to use the part number from my existing one on Ducati Omaha, 59210211x, no hits for any of A, B, C, D, E or F suffixes. So I conclude either (a) Ducati has changed the part number (b) these are dealer order only?
So October '17 to this past Sunday, 3/24/2019. I have put about 3,000 miles on the bike. Went for a ride with friends and after I fill up and take off on our ride, viola! Version E starts acting a fool. :frown2::frown2: Pattern was, it was not working while riding but when I'd come to a stop, or ride very slow, it would come back and be fine.Just picked up my MTS today and it received the "E". Time will tell. Riding season is almost over here and I have a lot of maint planned so it won't get much action anytime soon.
Do you happen to have the latest part number? All the searches I tried on Omaha drew a blank.Omaha has it.
I purchased one off of Ebay for approx $100 and replaced it in less than 1.5 hours. My bike is still under extended warranty, but it was still worth my while since my dealer is 3 hours away (each direction).Do you happen to have the latest part number? All the searches I tried on Omaha drew a blank.
Of course, I also want to figure out if Ducati will cover it but it's possible that it'll still be cheaper for me to pay for the part vs the labour at the dealer... :surprise:
Try a 22k ohm resistor. That is what I put on my 2013 and works fine. Shows 3/4 full and no fuel light. I sent a couple of extra resistors to somebody on this forum and they had same success.I just tried a 47k ohm resistor and it was the same as my sensor with probable 60% fuel.......one bar and fuel light on.
So it is either the wiring is shorted to ground or a ecu issue.
I think we are at firmware or a signal wire got pinched and sees groundThis also confirms that for the '10-'14s less resistance means more fuel and the newer fuel sensors (I assume 1198SP faulty sensor is from a DVT) are working the opposite way i.e. less resistance less fuel. So, the older bikes need to be setup to work correctly with the newer sensors.
If your 2012 had the original sensor then you will need an "update" for the ecu to use the newer sensors. I am not sure when they started it but MY 2013 definitely had a computer update when its first sensor crapped out.I think we are at firmware or a signal wire got pinched and sees ground
I will meter the signal wire tonight.
