I'd look for a bad or broken ground somewhere, either feeding both tanks, or the gauge itself, but start at the sending units and see if there is a common ground wire coming forward & joining into one.

Dual tank pickup. Fuel gauge doesn't work on either tank?


You just have a ground problem between the frame and tank ground. It has to be connected to a clean tab on the tank at the fuel sending unit. Check and clean them, both tanks. It gets confused and don't know what to do without a complete circuit.

Fuel gauge is inop and reads past full but still reads past full even with purple wire disconnected


single tanks or dual tanks, and if it is not working properly it will dive over the top end. Did one last week and it was a dual tank with a diverter valve that wasnt working right, and the sender wasnt getting contact either through the ground or the purple had to rewire both into an undisturbed part of the loom.

My f350 1997 will not run on the rear tank . how do i go about finding what the problem is?


well, first, to find out if its the in tank fuel pump or the tank selector valve, the cheapest and probable easiest thing to do is find the selector valve under the truck and switch the incoming fuel lines. front tank to rear tank inlet, and vice versa. If the truck still doesnt run, you either have an electrical delivery problem to the in tank fuel pump or a bad fuel pump. If after switching the lines, it does run, then you need a new selector valve

Fuel gauge wont work on 7.3 diesel. is there a way to test it ?


is it dual tanks? it could be in the switch if it is, most of the time it is bad grounds to the tank unit. grounding the wire from the sending unit to the gauge should make it move, one way or the other

There was a recall on some of these dual tank valves. Call a dealer with your VIN number and ask if yours is involved.
