I have a 2003 chev silverado. The fuel gauge quit working then started working again on an off. Then my radio would go out and the fuel gauge would start working. Now my AC is not working. It's like...


It may seem like the problems are related, but they most likely are not at all, unless it's an actual battery power issue. Your fuel gauge consists of 2 parts and wires to connect them, the sending unit, which is in the gas tank connected to your fuel pump on your truck I believe, and the gauge itself inside your dash. It is most likely your sending unit/fuel pump which sucks cause that's like $350, altho easy enough to replace yourself with very little gas in the tank. As for the radio check fuses, and AC I have no idea...

common problem with chev trucks. the square 4 wire plug on the top of the fuel pump is known to go bad. Often shorting the fuel pump. replace the pump with the new pigtail they provide in a good quality fuel pump.

Fuel gauge stoped working and the low fuel light stay on


The guage stopped working, because a code set , possibly due to a faulty fuel sending unit, or a wiring issue. This would neeed to be scan tested for the current code. After repair is made, and the code is cleared, the guage will work again. Thanks...

FUEL GUAGE IN 89' SILVERADO 2500 NOT WORKING


fuel sending unit in tank but could be fuse or breaker. Are any other gauges not working? if all other gauges working probably not instrument panel fuse or cluster fuse. And if your not having problem with fuel getting to engine then more than likely your sending unit is not in with fuel pump.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Fuel Pump


check the connector to the fuel pump for corrosion or loose pins, the fuel pumps of newer cars and trucks are designed to last at least 100,000 miles, when the new pumps quit did u verify they had power to them?

Change Fuel Pump on 1999 Chev Silverado v8 2 wd automatic 2 door


well the pump is in the fuel tank and it depends if the tank is full or not if it is its very heavy and you will need a jack and 1 other person to help you there are two fuel lines to unhook and the electrical connector. When replacing it replace the entire fuel pump/sending unit and the electrical harness or you will end up having more problems also spend the extra 15$ and replace the fuel filter

Fuel gauge not working on a 98Z71


you may want to check for corrosion or signs of over heating within the connector at the pump. I have seen this condition before. For certain vehicles a "revised" connector is available, that you'll have to splice to the existing harness, to replace the original. I hope this helps.
