Ha, I like that test, simple. Gen light works fine. I didn't Teflon tape it. I tried 2 senders so I doubt it's that, but I'll ground it and then like trace the wiring back. I have everything disconnected and then reran the wiring to clean up the dogs breakfast but made sure everything was marked. I'm thinking during the process the wire got loose someplace or snapped since they're OLD and brittle.
