Either fuel sensor is bad or coated with sulfur residue from inferior gas. Try a can of Sea Foam gas treatment OR can of Techuron concentrate. Both available at auto parts and , of course, Walmart ! Add to full gas tank, drive 75 - 100 miles and see if all is well. If not, condide4 sensor change

Warning light for low fuel stays on


The sensor is part of the fuel pump module inside the gas tank.
The signal is sent to the body computer, so it could be a faulty module or a problem with the body computer.
The circuit would need to be checked with a meter.

Low gas indicator light does not come on when guage is on E


The fuel pump is kept cool by the fuel in the tank. It is rare for a Toyota fuel pump to fail but if your running it that low on gas your not helping last any longer. I would suggest not letting your tank get below a quarter tank. That way you will never have to worry about whether or not the light will come on. Typical there would be about a gallon or less of fuel in the tank before the light would come on. If it did come on you would have about 20 miles r so of fuel left in the tank.

I have a Hyundai Elantra 2001. The low fuel light came on and won't go off even though the car if full of gas.


If gauge still shows empty and light is on then inside tank there is a arm thats prob just stuck remove lower rear seat and will see entry to tank gauge has about 3 to 4 screws open and check if arm is down or floating .

Gas gauge quit working just shows low fuel light and noting on gauge even if tank is full


This is a case of the sending unit being bad, this is very common on these trucks, this is like a toilet float, it floats inside the tank with a sensor at the base that controls the gauge, hope this helps,65a8465.jpg

I have a Toyota Echo 2004 , the fuel tank indicator on the instrument panel stop working even if the car is completely full the ligth is on , indicating low fuel.


There is a flotation operated sender inside the gas tank, which provides information to the gauge.
Either your sender has died or become corrupted by taking on gas, or the gauge has died. Probably easier cheaper and faster to have the gauge checked out at a dealer than to pull the tank out. Might be a common problem on that model or year. Ask a dealer service department how much to figure it out.
