Yale GP080VX:
fuel level sensor/running issues

Just wanted to make sure if the fuel level sensor would make the computer diable the lift if it were not reading correctly? I wouldn't think so but with the computers on these things who knows?!! Its a v6 gas powered unit by the way. The lift was running fine and then just wouldn't start one morning. I narrowed that down to it not getting fuel due to a faulty connection going to the pump through the top plate that holds the pump assembly. I have it hard wired for temp purposes just to make sure I am getting fuel which I am now. While I had the pump out I noticed that there was a lot of rust in the bottom of the tank so Iremoved all the old and rusty gas and cleaned the tank as best I could and put new gas in along with a new inline filter. Now when starting the lift it starts fine for about a second and then starts to backfire through the airbox and runs extremely rough. When trying to give it gas it stumbles and dies! I'm pretty sure that the injectors are my problem at this point but wanted any input you may have on this bc I don't see how a fuel level sensor could cause this issue. I do have a battery that I have been using that I have to use jumper cables to start the lift. I need to replace it. Could the weak battery be a possible issue even though the alternator is working correctly?
