Prostar 190 fuel gauge wiring issue.

Sender is good and gauge is good, for some reason I am not getting power to the gauge for it to work. When I put a jumper wire from the clock to the fuel gauge it reads correctly, so the wire to the gauge itself is dead. Lights work on all gauges and this is the only one that is not working. Is there a fuse or breaker that I am missing somewhere?

The wire is probably open or broken, you would need to trace that circuit to find the bad wire or just run a new wire from another operational gauge to fuel gauge. Doesn't have separate circuit breakers or fuses for individual gauges.

Ended up just removing the old wire from the fuel gauge and using the one from the clock instead. Gauge will always be on but I have two batteries and a perko switch, cant see the gauge drawing any more power than the clock anyways.
