Water in fuel light off and on

I get the water in fuel light on every once in a while. Sometimes it comes in solid and sometimes it just flashes on and off. I drain the bowl and have never gotten any water. Should I get a new sensor or is there something out there that I can delete it with? Where do you recommend getting it from?

Inspect the wiring around the fuel bowl. Leaking diesel fuel can turn the wiring insulation to goo. You can get away with not having the fuel restriction sensor, but I would want to keep the Water-In-Fuel circuit fuctional. Look for the WIF switch (which is cube-shaped on the drive's side engine harness). Cheers!
