    Yeah try that Peter if no success come back and let us know.

    I'm sure between us all we can come up with other trial and error suggestions.

    Is the transfer pump working Pete? Just a wild guess but if the fuse or wiring to the motor is no-go then that may also make it show on the dash?

    Is it the standard or a long range sub tank Pete? Many people putting long range sub tanks in have issues.

    Mate its just standard all the way , i looked at the fuses under the dash and under the bonnet , im guessing if they're not black or broken through the middle they should be ok ...its not an urgent fix right now i may wait till the next service and get them to do it , i cant really tell whats going on in there...

    Sub tank light issues for me were solved when I made a new earth point on the chassis and fitted a new earth strap. Give it a whirl.

    Hey mate....
    Currently having the same issue with my old mans 4.8 gu. We took it into Nissan and they had it for a day and said they would just put a new earth to the tank. Well that worked for a few hours and cost 180$.

    They now currently have the patrol and have had since Monday and are now saying it is a power feed to the pump which is causing the problem. They said they will still need it tomorrow to fix it. They spent all of today finding the problem so hopefully they will sort it all out.

    I know it may be a costly thing but you may have to take it to Nissan. If I can get them to tell me the exact problem I'll post it up.

    FIXED IT . FYI , I disconnected the battery , followed the earth cable which is the negative one down to the side of the battery housing unsrcewed the nut , took off the lead from the body gave it a good clean, as it was greasy and black also gave it a light sand, put everything back together again { no parts left over lol }turned her over and with my eye on the subtank light .......it went off !!!!!!!!!!!!..yessssssssss...pressed the sub tank button and drained all the fuel across ....so far so good ...about time i could fix something for free........also i didn't have to key in any pin for the radio which was good cos i didn't have one...
