Proton satria neo 007,fuel guage problem,it will show gas level and then suddelnly the guage will go down and stay there showing no gas and the petrol light dont even work


You need to determine if the sender is bad or the gauge is. If you can get to the signal wire at the fuel tank for the gauge (this goes inside tank to sender that provides a variable ground circuit) ground that wire briefly to see if dash gauge rises. If so, part inside tank is bad. If not, gauge or some part of its wiring circuit is bad.

Where do I find the ground unit for the gas gauge on a 95 Honda passport. I went and changed the dash board lights and the gas gauge started tripping and stopped working need help


If the fuel guage worked prior to changing the bulbs the ground should be ok. The only thing disturbed was the cluster assembly when you removed it. Recheck the connections at the back of the cluster again for tight connections and making sure there are no bent pins. You can also try tapping on the cluster near the fuel guage area to see if that helps

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.

Just bought a 2000 honda passport, and the gas gauge does not work , is it a fuse that needs to be replaced ?


if the light works for low fuel it is not a fuse, most likely cause is a bad sending unit in the gas tank.

My fuel gauge was just touching the red section and I put $40 of gas in (just over12 gal) and the gauge just moved to between the 1/4 and 1/2. do I need to replace my gauge?


These usually have large tanks, although the guage is attached to the fuel sending unit located in the gas tank. Essentially a level in the tank that tell the guage where the level of fuel is. I would start with the sending unit, usually sold with the fuel pump.

Gas gauge is not registering level consistently . level changes up and down. i fill gas tank up and it will go down to a3/4 of a tank fairly accuratly then gets erraic, going to full and back 3/4 very...


sounds like its time for a new sendinding unit, this is the part that hold the fuelpump inside the tank, and has a float arm, this is what tell you how much gas is in the tank, heres a picture of it,this comes with everything even the pump,also make sure to wire in the new connector,these trucks have connector problem,good luck.also check the ground that go to that connector, follow them,may go to rear frame on the leftside, remove and clean them.d2f4ba0.jpg

2006 GMC Envoy XL gas gauge reads empty after filling continues reads empty and the light is on then the check engine light came on what can be the problem how ca i fixe it to save mesome $$$


It is most likely your fuel level sending unit has gone bad. It sits inside your fuel tank to tell the fuel guage how much gas you have in the tank.

The sending unit for the gas gauge is in the fuel tank and part of the fuel pump module, it is not sold seperately. Price is around $350.00, 2 hours labor to install the part.

Gas gauge not working property


Pontiac has a problem with the sender for the fuel guage. A quart of transmission fluid in a full tank of gas usually fixes it. The "engine" light, won't be on because of that. Quite often that is the air filter or fuel cap.

2004 Dodge Stratus gas guage starts to go empty


You likely need a new fuel sending unit (it's in the trunk, and is what drives the gauge).
