SOURCE: fuel gauge not working

yea fords with two tanks are known for getting stuck if you dont switch the tank constantly. you have to get to the valve that switches the two tanks, and free it up. it definitley isnt anything but the valve.

SOURCE: pump relay

The relay is located on the cab on the drivers side. Locate the fuel pump inertia switch up against the firewall.
Check and see if you have a fuel shut off switch in the trunk of your car. It should tell you in your owners manual. you can see if you have power there when you turn your key on. it only powers it up for 4 to 5 seconds

I have a 1988 ford f-150 custom with a straight six with a 4 speed manual trans. the fuel gauge and temp gauge is not working but the speedometer and odometer and oil pressure is working what could it be?


could be the guage itself, the sending unit for those guages or the wiring in between. find the sending unit, should be two wires the sending unit actually changes the amount of voltage going to the guage. cross the two wires over at the sending unit, the guage should read all the way in one direction, do this for both guages. if the guage moves to an extreme position when the wires are crossed the guage and wiring are fine and the sending unit is the culprit. if you cant get the guages to move by crosing the wires, suspect the guage itself. find you a freindly garage to help w your repair. hope this is useful

How do you fix a gas hand on a 1988 f150 this is killing me running out of gas every where I go...?


you need to replace the sending unit inside the gas tank, if you have a broken gauge then replace the gauge, most of the time is a sending unit in the tank that goes bad, drop fuel tank to replace. heres a picture of it, hope this helps.d6cd1f2.jpg

Where is the water temp sensor located on the motor the temp guage on the instrument panel is not showing engine temp


It's not the temp sensor you need, it's the temp sending unit you need.
The sending unit operates the gauge
The sensor activates the electric cooling fans.
If you have the 4.9 6 cyl. it's on the passenger side, in back of the engine, just below the end of the exhaust manifold, it has a one wire push on connection.
On the V8, it's next to, or just below the distributor, with just a one wire push on connection.

1989 Ford F150 Instrument Cluster Problem


Some of the gauges are on the same fuse as the dome light; check the fuses. The other main source of gauge problems for this vintage F150 is the sending units and I don't use the term sending unit lightly, so when you go to the parts store make sure you say you are looking for sending units not sensors (sensors hook to the computer) sending units are of 2 types for this vintage F150, lights and guages you need the ones for gauges, the oil sending unit is about 4 dollars and the coolant temp sending unit for a guage is about the same.

I have 4 fords and you will come to understand that the wiring is a jury rig, all this come out when they are the age of your 1989 PU.
