SOURCE: fuel gauge reading zero and light on ?

Ford has lots of problems with the sender reliability. Typically, the sender (and expensive fuel pump) replacement resolves the issue. To test, you need to take the connection off of the sending unit, at the tank, turn on ignition, and then ground and un ground it and view results at the gauge. If the gauge responds, the sender needs to be replaced.

There are aftermarket senders that cost less than OEM.

SOURCE: cigar lighter problem on 2005 Ford Explorer

even though the fuse is good, change it anyway and look for other bad fuses. it is possible that someone rewired and put wired them somewhere else. i just saw that yesterday. also, check to make sure a wire did not fall off or get broken/fried. if both power points are not working they are connected to the same power and ground points, whereby creating a circle/circuit. also check to see if one of the units is bad. if it take two to complete the circuit/circle and one unit is bad, maybe the circle/circuit is broken. you can test the units with two jumper wires and your battery/a jump box. these units are only + and -.

SOURCE: fuel gauge stops at half full when full of fuel on

There must be a problem with the sending unit it the tank. In order to replace it you would have to pull the fuel tank out and replace the sending unit. If it works for the second half, you may just be better off living with it that way. It is not cheap to replace the sending unit and you may as well replace the whole unit when you are in there. Many times just messing with the pump which is part of the sending unit will cause it to fail.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: 2006 ford 500 fuel gauge only shows 1/4 tank after

On most of your newer cars the fuel level sensor is located in the tank with the fuel pump.The only way to test it for proper operation is to remove the fuel pump and test the sensor.Unfortunitly your tank has to be removed because the pump and sensor as one unit.The fuel pump costs about 219.00 up to 229.00 depending on where your live plus your labor and that price changes from area to area.I hope that solves your problem for you.

Just changed fuel pump on 2005 f250 4x4 and fuel gauge moves up tom 1/8 tank and reads low fuel on full tank, why is my fuel gauge not working correctly


The fuel sending unit rod was bent during the instalation giving you the false readings. This is the thin metal rod that attaches the float to the sender.

2005 ford explorer ABS, SES LIGHT, AND ADVTRAC LIGHT ON


The first thing to do is to have the ABS and engine computers scanned for trouble codes.
The problem with the check engine light could also turn on the ABS and traction control lights. Or it could be different issues.
The gas gauge being out of calibration could be the float in the gas tank or the gauge on the dash. I doubt that problem is related to the warning lights.

Filled the tank to the top on my 2003 ford XR6 and gauge goes to empty and slowly comes back up over the nexy 50kms


This is a well known fault with this model. I am sorry but I cannot remember now if the problem was with the gauge on the dash or the sender unit in the fuel tank. There was also a big problem with the gauges giving incorrect readings when they appeared to be working.

Contact your local ford dealer service centre and they can tell you the fix as they have done hundreds of them.

'05 ford escape - car won't start if fuel below 1/4 tank


Not sure about P0195, but P093 is for a problem with the fuel rail pressure sensor. The sensor could be faulty or it could be accurate when the fuel system is empty.
Your sending unit for the fuel gauge could be off. Can you check the amount of fuel it takes to fill the tank when the gauge reads half ? If the gauge is right it should take half of the capacity of the tank to fill it up.

Why is gas gauge not working correctly since fuelpump was replaced.


Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.

This is due to a problem with the gears in the gauges; there was a manufacturing defect that ford fixed in later years. The cheapest solution is to replace these gauges. I found a local mechanic that knew how to fix it, and did the job for $30 a gauge. I recommend checking craigslist for a local person, because this is a very common problem.

You will need to replace the fuel level sensor which is in the fuel tank.They have a lot of problems because the metal fingers on the sensor wear off and gives you the incorrect readings.This will also cause the check engine light to come on.You will probably have a level sensor code.This will be a lot easier if the fuel level is down to about a quarter tank or less.Also you should be able to get just the level sensor and not have to get the complete fuel pump module.Good luck.
