Hi,
our 2010/60 did the same while under "L/R Approved Warranty" and CCP refused it as a warranty claim as known issue Twisted Evil the dealer contacted CRC and they authorised the repair (sender wires)
so may be worth mentioning get L/R to pay

it has been mentioned that car could go into limp mode if it "thinks" its going to run out of fuel so sooner rather than later may be best

Always pick up stick in the middle !!

Can still email a pdf copy of complete bulletin if wanted, not sure what I'm doing but have managed to upload PDF file to my gallery as well. Need to work out how to add to post sometime. Might help anyone else who has similar problems.


Cheers

My 2010 RRS developed this fault. Fuel gauge suddenly reads empty, then works for a while and then reads empty again. I've just had it repaired as per the tech bulletin above - i.e. a fault with the connectors.

However, a word of warning ..... My RRS developed this problem a couple fo weeks ago and I thought it was no big deal. Just book it in for a repair when convenient and in the meantime make sure it doesn't run out of fuel. But... the vehicle ground to a halt a couple of days ago. Shuddering and regularly stalling. Had it recovered to the garage where they said that because the vehicle thought it was out of fuel the engine management system started shutting it down to protect itself. I'm still a little surprised this was the case, but it seems to be so. Beware!
