Sorry, can't remember exactly, but one wire will be low fuel warning, one
fuel position and the other an earth wire. Check the connections on the
sender, there's a join onto the main rear loom about a foot back which
could be bad as well. I would imagine your earth is bad if you're not
getting anything - do you have fuel in it?!
