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.

Trouble shootfuel guage94 jeep cherokee


gauge stuck high or low or"??????????????
how to ?
with no tools or with ?
got meter? or nothing.?
is tank full now, empty?
knowing that we can check the sender.
using an OHM meter, dmm set to resistance
unplug sender and check its ohms to ground.
infinity reading is bad sender
btw at 63ohms the sensor is at, cause the low fuel lamp to glow.
page 8e-6 in the factory manuals shows doing all this.
its in every jeep book in print. XJ jeep.
8e-23 shows.
empty tank is 105 ohms
1/2 full is 33 ohms
and full is 5 ohms.

first is fuse good to cluster, do all other guages work?
then unplug C203, below near tank
see that wire,DB, (dark-blue)
measure it to with ohm meter, must read 5 to 105 ohms
if not and is why too too high .
unplug C307, and measure black to VT, (violet?)
100 to 5 homes if ok now, the ground wire there is rusty.
if not ok, the sensor is toasted.
if all this check ok.
then at c203, DB wire ground that wire,
and gauge must go to fULL key on,
if not . the DB wire is bad, or custer guage, bad,
if this test fails we do this same grounding test
at the actual gauge. if fails, gauge is bad.

2009 Cadillac Escalade ESV Issues ?!!!


Drop the gas tank and check for contamination/corrosion. You're going to have to do that to replace the fuel level sender anyway and check both the fuel pump (it's in the tank) and the primary filter on the pickup tube.

What is wrong - The fuel gauge on my YP125R X-Max is constantly showing full


A constantly full fuel gauge is usually caused by a short circuit on the sensor wire. Check the wiring by isolating the wire as near as possible to the fuel gauge. Measure with an Ohm meter between the wire and earth, the reading should be more than 10 and less than about 200k. A short is indicated by a reading of around 0 Ohms, depending on the accuracy of your meter.
A second possibility is the sender unit in the fuel tank which could be faulty, and then finally, and only finally, the head gauge could be faulty.

GAS GAUGE STUCK ON FULL


well its not connected>? or you forgot to ground the ground wire?
if you had a DMM meter , this would be easy,
you can measure the sensor ohms, at any time with tank in car.
and id have never put back any tank with out checking it first.
not me, pulling tanks is no fun.
and empty tank the gauge sender is at max ohms, (lever down)
so is about 100 ohms and 10 ohms full (ball park) RTM
read the FSM read alldata.com
heck the FSM has a flow chart for these tests. amazing huh?
i dont use it, i use my meter and ohms law.
ill now look online at alldata.
the only think complex is which of 2 systems it is,
in the late 90s most cars changed. to indirect way.
ok , i looked, your car is direct way, (cave man)
its just 2 parts, a gauge and a sender. (sure wires)
the sender is grounded at G751
if the dash temp guage works , then the fuse is not blown , fuse 1.

the tests are cave man simple , all FSM show this.

1: unplug the Yellow/Blue sender wire, at any point
from front (gauge) to sender, any place, there are many.(4 junctions)
now, on the upstream side, key on, and ground this pin for 1min
max, if guage moves pull the ground. (i use $#194 lamp for tests )
i connect my lamp to ground and the other side to the guage,wire.
then key on and see guage move. bingo gauge is 100% good.
cave man easy. (

now the sender.
i measure the ohm.
DMM on 200 ohm scale if manual meter.
i connect black meter to body ground (shiny steel not plastic)
i connect red lead to down stream wire above..Yellow/Blue
it must read 100 ohms empty
not 0 ohms.
not infinity.
if read infinity? the wire is cut, or gound it open or the sender is bad.
if reads 0, the wire is grounded to the body or the the sender is bad (shorted)
do not take my facts on ohms as verbatim,
read the FSM and get the facts.

but i think your tank sender wire is shorted to ground.
some gauges work backwards, and my poor online version
dont cover this. well.
unplug the sensor does guage go full or empty?
most go empty, but not all.
use the lamp to test the gage, get to swing both ways
with lamp to ground and with lamp and wire disconnected.
cheers.

More than likely the fuel sender in tank, but try connections, if it works when full or in between its sender

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

I have a 1993 toyota camry v6 and my speed meter and gas meter doesn't work how do I fix the problem my self


This may be two diffrent problems, first start by checking the fuses, check them all. next if you now how to unplug the fuel sender and then ground it, when unpluged it will read full when you ground it ,it will read empty, this is a way to see if the gauge is working, if the gauge reads when this is done then the fuel sender is bad and wiring and gauge are good, if it doesnt read then you will need to check gauge and wiring to gauge. next is speed, i would start by testing the sensor or cable to see if its working, your car may have a cable being a 1993, remove the cable and spin by hand and see if needle jumps also check for broken cable when removing, you can pull cable out of housing sleeve to see if its broken, start with these tests.
