    Just joined the site after spending the last day looking for answers on our no fuel reading glitch the last two days in our 2011 LR4. I read a thread here yesterday regarding the same thing happening to a LR3 and it turned out to be the wiring harness had a severed "green" rear fuel tank sensor wire where it rubbed against the frame of the truck. I took off the front paasenger side inner wheel housing but didn't find the wire harness located in the same spot. I figured it was worth a try even thought the engines are different. Does anyone happen to know where the wires from the fuel tank are routed towards the front of the vehicle? I am having trouble tracking them towards the front of the engine bay. I am hoping the the wires are pinched and grounded out along the way somewhere. Next step will be to drop the tank and install both front and rear sensors...

    Thanks!

    There is actually a TSB on this, for the in tank connections.
    I had a different problem though.
    A rodent chewed the wires on the top of my tank
    Only way to know is to drop the tank and inspect everything.

    Ok thanks for the tips, everything has been up and running for the last 5 days.. I’m hoping it was a sticking float/sensor in the tank.. we’ll see

    thanks!!
