Question about 1997 GMC Sonoma
The gas gauge is pegged out all the way to the right. Its not giving me a correct level
To the right , i am assuming to the "full tank" reading. am i right?
if i am right, the wire from the gas tank is sending a full tank signal what ever the content of the tank.
meaning the wire is shorted to ground.
or the sending unit is faulty. there is a short to ground reading between the sending unit.
you can test which one is faulty. remove the wire from the sending unit. observe the gauge. if the gauge would go to " empty" then the culprit is the sending unit. if it stays on " full tank", then the wire is faulty.
WARNING: GASOLINE IS EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE. BE VERY CAREFUL IN HANDLING NEAR THEM.
