Default Water in Diesel indicator in palio D

I have this indicator coming up randomlly especially when conering hard. This issue has been there for many months & the last couple of times it was taken to the Auth Service centre they could not figure it out.

last week i showed it to a mechanic who used to work for fiat in the past & he says its probablly water in the diesel tank. and that i should have the tank cleaned out.

I always thought the sensor was somewhere near or in the fuel pump and am not sure whether this is a good angle to investigate.

and ideas or suggestions from the Palio D gurus ?

Water needs to be drained out of Fuel filter. Please take it to the A.S.S and
they would do it for you in 5 min.

Clean Your Tank, Fuel Lines and Drain the Filter.

BTW how old is the car and where do you fill up.

Default Hi!

the quick way ,switch off the ignition switch ,
disconnect the water sensor coupler of the water sensor which is located on the botom of the cartridge fuel filter ,
just unscrew the bottom drain bolt cum fuel sensor .drain the diesel+water out , refit in reverse order, crank for a while check for the light function.
the technically correct way,,, <and the costly one too>
first remove the water+diesel from the tank,clean the tank with a lint free cloth ,
then disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel injection pump. disconnect the pipe lines to and from the diesel filter.
blow clean, water separated air<all good workshops have water separators in the penumatic lines>from tank side making is sure that all the diesel+water is out.
remove the diesel filter drain plug which also acts as a water sensor too .
drain the fuel in a container .
if there is more than 20 ml of water, too much dirt, 30+k kms on it .REPLACE THE FILTER TOO
then fit everything properly .
pour good quality fuel ,
crank the engine.. it will prime the fuel filter,
after the engine starts, check for any leakages if any ,
check of u have not damaged, forgot anything else!!
check the diesel water contamination indicator for proper functioning.
enjoy the drive!
