On rare occasions, the fuel gauge does not read the correct level which may result in a no start condition due to a low fuel level.

Upon further investigation, the technician may find DTC P0455/P0461 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit Performance stored in the ECM/PCM. Test it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

SOURCE: fuel sending unit gas gauge dont work could that

It can be the problem. Of course the resistor in the interiors gage can be at fault as well. A OHM METER is used to test these parts.

SOURCE: gas gauge sometimes works 1995 dodge b2500 van

It is a reasonable assumption that the sensor in the tank is bad.The gauge in those are replaceable, try the dealer but first price them online, JC Whitney and LMC Truck and so on. I would try the tank first, it isn't the favorite job, but my bet is there.

Also my gas guage is stuck on full. it goes to empty when I turn ignition swith to off.do I need a new guage ?


It could be the gauge or the sender, in the fuel tank, or the fuse to the sender. On some Hondas there's a voltage regulator, in the gauge assembly, holding fuel gauge and some others to 8V.

Why does my gas gauge needle never go below 3-4 tank?


I would guess the fuel level sending unit is malfunctioning, deposits sometimes build up on the resistor pack, or there is and open circuit in the resister pack, does the fuel gauge needle do a full sweep from empty to full and back when the ignition key is turn to the run position? This is a cluster self check mode, if it fully sweeps than the cluster is ok, I would suspect it needs a fuel level sending unit which is located in the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump modual but usually can be serviced separately

1968 Camaro convertible fuel gage not indicating. Fuses are good. Cannot find the problem.


Pull the connector apart at the gas tank, and ground the fuel level sending wire (on the vehicle side of the connector). Turn key to on. If gauge now goes to full, the gauge is good. The sender unit in the gas tank is bad.

I have a 98 ford ranger that the fuel gauge always reads full even when i pulled the pump out and disconnected the wires when you turn the key on it goes back to full


This could be a bad sending unit, it goes to full when wires are disconnected. the way to test your sending unit would be with a ohm meter connected to the wires and as you move the float the readings will go up or down, if they do not then sending unit is bad, if it is stuck on full it is hard to test by just removing the connector because reading should go to full when connector is unplugged, try jumping the wires at connector and see if it goes to empty, if it does then gauge and wiring are good and sender is bad. good day

My gas gage does not work. After I fill up with gas...withing 20-30 minutes it goes all the way down to empty. Should this be fixed or would it be too expensive to fix. The car is a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am...


Either your gauge is bad or the fuel level sender is. Most likely it's the sender in the gas tank. To replace it you would have to drain the fuel tank and pull the fuel pump/sender assembly and replace. You cannot just replace the fuel level sender with this car, the entire assembly must be changed out.

My fuel gauge on my F350 2005 is stuck on full just started this. whats most likely the gauge are fuel sending unit.


The sender is more likely to fail. If you disconnect the sender electrical connector near the tank, you can ground the sender lead to see if the gauge goes to empty, indicating that the gauge and wiring are OK.

MY GAS GAGE ON MY 1999 CHEVY VENTURE DOESN'T WORK. IT ALWAYS SAYS FULL. DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE GAS TANK?


NO, on the fuel pump assembly is a swinging type arm with a float on the bottom end and some metal teeth on the other, as the fuel leval goes up or down these teeth contact a plate on the body of the fuel pump assemby that send a signal to the gauge. Now either your float arm is sticking, guage is bad, or the sending unit is bad. I would suggest the sending unit, it is availble as a repair unit, you dont have to buy the whole fuel pump. The gauges usually last the life of the car.

Gas gauge stuck on empty


Adam, I like your solution, but this is easier:
1. Get a strong magnet
2. Use the magnet to move the needle into the top half of gage (don't take anything apart)
3. Test it by turning the car on.
