Fuel Sender Woes, anything better than Centroid?

Had to replace my sender as it stayed on Full, Ordered a new one form MC. Got it instaleld and now it stays on empty and I cant get the damn thing programmed. all the wiring is correct, the gauge reads full when I short the sender by touching the bottom. The gauge goes to full when I try to program it both on the empty (2 second count) and full (5 second count) but the programming never takes. Ive contacted tech support (via email) apperently they are all mutes or have no idea how to use a modern telephone as there is no way they will help other than fax or email. Im pretty much over not being able to speak to a live person that supports thier product but thats a whole other rant.

Ive pretty much given up on this sender (and company) ever working correctly in my boat. What are my other choices?

Have you tried reversing the wires? I read many times on this board that the replacement is wired backwards.

That would be a easy resolution, but the problem is that the gauge reads full when the sender is shorted out by putting my finger on the end...which means the wires are correct

It sounds like a bad sender.....call isspro...you shouldn't have to switch wires around....It's just a plug and go deal.

When mine went out I just called them and told them year, make & model....no measurements required. Recieved it.....unplugged the old one, plugged in the new and turn it upside down to check the guage reading, the directions say do this to check the float before installing it in the tank. Good ta go!
