Sounds like the Vehicle is POSESTED LoL ,
I would Hardwire a Key on wire around the origanal wires. Fuel Pump IS NOT going to set a Trouble Code at all ever, as it is an electrical component like headlights, as for the missfiring & guage reading above full I see nothing in commen with the 2 as long as the Supply and return hoses are
not swaped witch they cant be because it wouldnt run (thinking on keyboard) LoL-- Also check Fuel presure regulator. Hope this Helps you.

97 CHEVY ASTRO VAN - NON WORKING FUEL GUAGE


When you replaced the fuel pump, did you have you switch to the new harness? Check your wiring.
Could it simply be a relay?
My dash gauges went nuts but the car runs.
Do you hear the fuel pump running?
Did you replace the fuel filter? Should be on the frame under the driver.
Bosch fuel pumps are the way to go. The ret seem to **** out after 60,000.
Good luck.

Fuel gauge dont work i put a new fuel pump in it and it still do'nt work 1997 blazer


Was the wire harness replaced from the fuel sending unit to the frame, it's a good practice to replace the wire harness when the sending unit is replaced. The wires are know to break and cause sending unit issues from weak fuel pressure to faulty gas gauges.
The other possibility would be a faulty connection to the stepper motor in the gauge it self or just a faulty stepper motor that would need to be replaced. You can do a search on Ebay for stepper motors for your fuel gauge which runs for around $15.00 which is much better then $400.00 for a new cluster if it is and bad fuel gauge stepper motor.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

Gas gauge indicater stopped working


On these model of cars they have trouble with the sending unit in the gas tank on the side of the fuel pump. You can normally buy a new sensor with arm at an aftermarket parts store. However, the gas tnak has to come out to replace the sending unit. hope this helps you. good luck

No fuel delivery from the Brand new fuel pump and filter. 1988 Ol


The pump is only suppose to run for 3 seconds if the engine is off. It will only stay pumping if the engine is running so the circuitry seems to be just fine. You prabably just got a bad pump again. Its common for repair shop to put 2, 3, and 4 pumps sometimes before they get one that works. We find it very common that a gauge will malfunction and the real problem is you just ran out of gas.

01 chevy impala. power mirrors and gas gauge not working


Check all fuses and relays. As far as the gas gauge, you may need a new fuel pump, fuel pump relay, or the float on the fuel pump is loose or came off from ear and tear.The mirrors: check the fuses; also, check, or have the button panel in the door checked to ensure the connection are secure. May need a new switch for the mirrors. I am not familiar with this vehicle; but this is what I suggest doing to solve the issues.
