Have removed my washer tank/level sensor. Anyone know how to disable the warning in the ARC? Diode, jumper wire,...?

Thanks,

Derik

All you need to is jump a wire across the terminals at the sensor you pulled and the light will go out.

Thanks! So it just closes the loop?
The sensor is a reed switch. When the float is up, the magnet causes the reed to close and make a circuit. When the tank is empty, the reed is open and you see the bright red LED.

I found that simply shorting the sensor inputs to the ARC does not work. You need to connect a 50 ohm resistor across the offending input.

I connected an in line fuse between the level sensor leads and works perfectly.
