Question about 2000 Buick Park Avenue
I had my car in for a supercharger belt change and some pulleys. In the course of the repair the machanic had to remove my battery. Now the gas gauge needle has gone fully clockwise to stop UNDER the fixed stop pin. Turning the car off and on has not changed the problem ? The mechanic doesn't know what caused it ??? Any ideas?
We use a magnet wrapped in a soft cloth [so as not to scratch the dash] to turn the needle completely around again. No special tool needed

The magnet trick works. You just need a stong magnet, wrap in cloth (as mentioned above). and play around with it as close to the needle as possible and you will see it begin to turn.

Well, you need to go back to the mechanic to get it fixed. When he unplugged the battery, it reset everything and when he replugged it backed in, the sudden charge from the battery made the needle go all of the way around the fixed stop pin in the opposite direction. He may need to open that part up and turn the needle back to the fixed stop pin.
