Oil level switch. Had a spare one, so thought of opening one up and see how it works.
Absolute no idea of what is inside.
Cut open the outer plastic shell. First glimpse, its was a capacitor. 4700uF, 16V.
Removed the float. It had the magnet, which operated the switch inside.
It was thick rubbery plastic sealant.
After scraping it off.
After removing the capacitor.
After removing components and cleaning further.
Started with a low value capacitor since I changed the console to LED and not enough load to discharge the big capacitor. (Got all connections jumbled up, rewired second time)
Sealed with silicone.
Even with the small capacitor, the LED was not completely turning off. This necessitated in connecting a bulb in parallel. With bulb in, smaller capacitor was not able to give enough time to get the POST like signal. So opened up everything, put in bigger, original like value capacitor 4700uF, but 25V. Issue solved. Now console works like original. Parallel bulb located near float switch. Low oil gives underbody lighting
Sealed with silicone again, better than before.
Installed. Working 100% perfect.
Wrapped the cover with CF Vinyl (Again).
Bought a lot of bullet connectors, already had many, but wasn't enough. Paid ₹3.00 per piece. AVailable at Sivasakhthi Automobiles in Thakarapparambu. Old connectors were corroded, causing malfunction.
Male and female.
Triple connectors were impossible to get, so got them custom made.
All connectors properly sleeved.
Rerouted brake light switch wiring through front to reduce congestion.
