I have a problem with my Fuel gauge dropping to half full if I switch on the brights. Had Hella 700’s on but changed them to LED spots. No change. Problem started after fitting the spots. “Professionally” mind you. Electrician says its a ground fault. But the bakkie has spent a week at an electrician and no luck. Any one have a similar problem?
