Hi i have a 2000 2.4 t4 caravelle,

a problem has just started where the fuel light has started coming on (and the beep sounding) when there's over 1/4 of a tank left.

Have also tried filling the tank to ensure plenty of fuel, and the problem ceased. This light and beep issue seems completey random. Sometimes comes on and othertimes not when fuel is under 1/2 a tank.

Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks!

Try the "dashboard soldering" trick....posted here many times.
The connections are cr*p on the back of the board...mine sometimes had the dial at almost full, and the bleeper went off...one time, it was EMPTY, and it didn't (long walk to buy a can and 5l of fuel)......
I used to rely on filling to the brim, and then filling again after 1000km (just over 600 miles)...2.5 TDi.
Soldered the dash connections...been OK ever since.
(Dealer I bought it from couldn't sort it..said they would have to fit a new loom...NO WAY was I gonna let those monkeys make 20 MORE problems for me! ).
