Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with? Did you replace the tank and the sensor? Or just the tank?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
both tank and sensor as mentioned above.however one suggestion came that there might be a broken wire in the wiring loom????????????? could this be the cause?
Expert:  Jason replied 6 months ago.
It's definitely possible. Take the 2 wires that go to the oil tank sensor and disconnect them from the sensor. Then, with a paper clip, jump those 2 wires together. Does the alarm still go off, or does it go away?

Hi there. Just checking in. Any progress?
