Water Seperator Light

Recently i changed the fuel filter on my dad's 2003 stilo jtd with 57k and one owner as it was the original.
Now it flashes for a split second on every trip but no warning description on the dash.
The car runs perfectly by the way.

Has he got a problem?

Re: Water Seperator Light

The water in fuel sensor fits on the bottom of the fuel filter. Check that you've replaced the connector securely when you changed the filter.

Re: Water Seperator Light

Not really fixing the issue though is it. The sensor is there for a good reason.

Re: Water Seperator Light

The sensors seem to just knacker up. Since Fiat are about the only manufacturer who fit one I'd go with my above post & disconnect it. Ford,Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroen etc don't consider it necessary so neither do i.
