So the fuel restriction sensor was leaking on my 96 fuel bowl. I replaced it with a plug and now , I dont know if it's related or not but my new western plow glowplug relay buzzes when I turn the key on and now I have a draw of power somewhere. Battery gauge stays low and doesn't come back up like normal. Where and how should I start please

Unplug the sensor and see if the problem goes away maybe?
Otherwise I’d look for chaffed/burnt wires, make sure other connectors in the area are fully seated where you worked.

Yep it was me. The alternator plug was loose. Kinda just sitting there. Connected it better ad it's fine now. Thanks. I hope that's what it was anyway.

Sounds like the relay is staying on.

Have you tested it to see if it is?
