'86 GLL sending unit replacement part alternative

Postby meme93148 » Tue May 30, 2017 10:42 am

The fuel gauge on my digital dash show erratic readings, and I read that the issue usually stems from the sending unit. And they posted the part #: 25060-17P75. I have looked online and cannot find it in stock anywhere due to being discontinued.

Anyone know any part alternatives?

Unfortunately, the one on eBay wont work for digital dashboard. And the one you saw on zparts is the right one, but it is out of stock on every website I've been to. That includes zparts.

You might need to pick up a phone or walk into a store. I've had good luck calling places like MSA and them tracking down a part that they did not have listed on their website, I've also had good luck wiht the smaller parts stores that distribute for bumper to bumper or similar locating hard to find parts.

I realize this topic is pretty old, but I just dealt with this myself recently so I have some comments.

Under your hatch sound proofing mat, by the right wheel, you should see a little grey box:

This box is what converts the analog signal from the sender to digital for the GLL dash, though strangely not all digital Z's seemed to have it. IF you have this box, and it's still working, the analog fuel sender should work for you. I recently picked up the revised sender from Courtesy Nissan: https://www.courtesyparts.com/oem-parts ... aXNzYW4%3D and it's working fine with my digital dash. The "discontinued" GLL model of the fuel sending unit was actually the exact same unit, but it also came with an updated signal converter box. If a new fuel sender doesn't clear up your problem, then it's possible your signal converter box is the issue and those are long gone, so you'd need to try and repair your existing one.
