Water in fuel light on but no water.

I have the light light on but have drained bowl 3 times without getting water. Says reduced power as well. Cleaned connections without any success. Any thoughts? Does anyone have resistance specs on sensor so I can check that to see what it is reading. This is driving me crazy!

Pull the drain plug and spray the hell out of it with carb cleaner. Use a lighter to bend the straw 90* so you can spray up towards the sensor. Wax and junk accumulates in there and shorts out the sensor. You'll be amazed what you clean out. Count on using the whole can.

Just realized I'm in the 6.7 forum. This works on the older trucks...

I've been having the same problem, put a titan tank in and had a mishap and was sucking in snow so it froze up and didn't tell me there was water in there but when i tells me there is water there isn't. I try and delete it with my mini maxx and it usally takes multiple times turning key on and off and clicking the delete dtc and discontenting the battery also its getting a pain in the a**

The WIF counter in the pcm needs to be reset, make sure harness side connector doesnt have water in it.

Is that something that only the dealer can do?

Yes, or somebody that has an IDS ford scantool. It literally takes less than 5 minutes. I see it alot when people leave them unplugged for a while. Something happens with the the pcm to where that counter has to be reset or the light/derate never goes away. Its in toolbox> powertrain> service functions
The 6.4's would occaisionally do the same thing but the 6.7s are way more sensitive to it.
