Hi, I am a new member to this forum. I have a 2000 169 Backcountry Ghost and the fuel sender is not working. I have taken every hatch, compartment on the boat out and I can't find the sender. I looked under the console, followed the fuel fill line to the tank, nothing. Does anyone know or have an idea where the sender is or where I can get this information from?

Great! I knew you guys would have an answer. Now if I can just find that plate, or my xray glasses.

There are not always plates, all to often tanks are installed with no regard to maintenance. Hope I'm wrong Marco, good luck!

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the boat, but if the tank is in the floor there wil be a round pie eye hatch over the sender. Or under the console, or maybe even in one of the hatches in the front deck

Thanks for everyone's ideas/comments. I totally removed the center console, there are two battery cases inside and I removed both batteries and cases and low and behold there is a tiny access plate under the battery box. I removed it and there is the sender. Now I am replacing the sender and might as well rewire under the console while it is out.
