Water in fuel, light. Truck died on me.


Recommended Posts

Water in fuel light came on when I was in town. Wating to get home till I would drain the filter. But I came to a stop sign and the truck just died. So I drained both filters. Put fresh fuel in the filters. But the light is still on, I tried to start it. Nothing

Both filters? Meaning the air dog filter and the stock filter on the engine?

I deleted the stock filter on the truck. But it was both the fuel filter and water separator.

I don't have an AD so this might sound like a dumb question, but how do you get a :wif: light with the stock filter deleted?

I thought it plugged in to the air dog. The I just removed the filter off the truck.

Could the ECM be getting funky and turning the :wif: light on along with drivability problems? Could it be that. The wait to start dose not come on right away when the key turns on. And the fuel tank gauge is not working right. It doesn’t go above 1/4 tank even after I fill it up. I just figured I was gonna have to replace the sending unit

Many codes won't trip a CEL. I would check with a decent code reader and report back. I hate to say it but a delayed :wts: is a sign of a failing ECM. I'm leaning towards electronic issues but lets see what codes if any are stored.

So you plugged the water in fuel sensor lead into the AD? 

I want to know too...

 

On the other hand I get this light to come on once in awhile when it rains, the plug is just hanging there, I did fill it full of dielectric grease, but still sometimes rain trips the light.

Now your truck died at same time so you got something else going on, unless you were really able to plug that sensor in to ad. Or you have 2 separate issues.
