Exclamation Fuel water light came on

Well no biggie, just get an Allen wrench and back it out right?? Well thatís what I thought and I gave it a shot. All went as planned until it was time tighten it back up and the threads gave out.. now it looks like I have a problem.. Where do I go from here? try to get a replacement cover or helicoil, also can it be driven or am I stuck?

if the threads will hold just a little bit you should be able to put some thread lock on it. it will seal it so diesel shouldn't leak and will hold long enough to get you another housing..

if the threads are completely shot try J.B. weld quick dry . make sure you clean the surfaces of all fuel or it won't stick i had to go this route it held three months till i got a new one. put a small amount on the threads then coated the outside..

hope this helps good luck

Edge CTS keeps WIF light on all the time?!!!

Here's a video showing how the Water In Fuel light on my 6.0 liter 2003 F250 is coming on due to the Insight CTS device I installed: Insight CTS water in fuel issue by Daniel Odio-Paez on Socialcam - Nov 28

I emailed Edge about the problem, but they believe it's limited to just my vehicle (!!!). They wrote, "I think this issue may be something we can't fix as we have to pull data to view the parameters and the act of pulling data doesn't typically cause any issues whatsoever."

If you have installed an Insight product and your water in fuel light is on, please test it as I did in the video above. If yours is doing the same thing, PLEASE email the folks at Edge, at tech@edgeproducts.com so they know I'm not the only one with the problem. Maybe they'll figure out a way to fix it if they realize there are others with the same problem, since they don't seem to care too much when it's just me.

So, are you going to spam EVERY WIF thread with this?

Ever think maybe it IS just you? Maybe you should crawl under your truck and drain it!

My Insight didn't turn on my WIF light...

No issues here and I know quite a few others with the CTS and no light.

Forget the JB weld and get you some Marine Tex quick set. The stuff is tuff as nails and sets much harder. The stuff will hold threads very well. This would be a great time to take the whole assembly off the truck and clean it out. I think innovative Diesel makes a IV that goes in and has a tap on it to drain water. I need to order one for the Ex. If I do I'll let you know how it works. Be sure that whichever part has the good threads on it you coat in paste wax, my grease or good ole fashioned mold release if you can get it. It will allow you to remove the cap after the epoxy sets. Any excess epoxy that oozes out can be removed before it dries with acetone. Best of luck.

Lee, I drained it half a dozen times before I realized it was the CTS that was causing it.
