Testing low fuel sensor / light

Hi all, how can I test that the circuit, bulb for the low fuel indicator in the speedo. Is it a case of shorting the live red wire to the tank?

Be nice to now this works. To test the float mechanism, presume remove it from the tanks and manually activate it?

Re: Testing low fuel sensor / light

the red wire goes to the warning light.
A quick look at the wiring diagram shows that this goes through the sender unit and is then passed to earth.
So yes, with ignition on, short the red wire to a good earth and the light should come on.
Only need to take the sender unit out if there is a problem.
