So over the weekend, myself and 6 friends went to dinner. With one of them just picking up a corvette, of course he wanted to drive it, so I was nominated to drive the mustang as well. So 2 people in the corvette, and yes that means 5 in the mustang... not my idea.
So anyways, a buddies girlfriend was the one who draw the short stick to sit in the middle back on the hump of the seat. She maybe weighs 100lbs soaking wet. About a mile and a half down the road, my gas gauge goes from full to completely empty and the digital display comes on saying I have no gas (which i just filled prior to going). In about another mile, my check engine light comes on as well.
So we get to the restaurant which is only a little ways past where this all happened, and I kick everyone out of the back. My gas gauge returns back to normal, but my CEL is still on. So i plug my tuner into the car to read the code and it comes up "fuel sender gauge low voltage" or something similar to that. So i reset the code that night and all is good.
So, does anyone know what ford put under the that hump in the back seat? and why someone sitting there would trigger all of this? I just found it weird that sitting on the seat (even though obviously not suppose to) would do this. Has anyone else ever experienced this?
That's strange. I wonder if there is wiring in there and maybe a connecter near there. Maybe it 'pulled' on a wire/connector and caused the bad reading. I think the seat bottom is fairly easy to pop out. If so, I'd take it off and look under it.
