Gas gage doesn't work

2006 GMC Envoy- gas gage worked intermittently (went to full when filled tank, then dropped back to E shortly thereafter)
Has not worked at all for past 5 months-
Is this something that can be fixed w/out bringing to dealer?

    My 2006 Envoy's gas gauge drops to E and light starts beeping, not long after I have put gas in the car. registers ½ full after I add gas...then slowly drops down to empty. I also noticed the clock on the radio has stopped keeping time. Does this have anything to do with the gas gauge? Can it be fixed at home, or does it need to be taken into the dealer? Thank you!

    I have the Same Problem where the Gas Gauge doesn't Register. Can the Leveling sensor be accessed from under the rear seat?

It is possible the sender has failed, and can be replaced.

This sits in the fuel tank, so access has to be gained, usually be removing rear seats, access cover, and removing rivets and fixings.

It would be worthwhile to gain access to it and check first for any corrosion on electrical connectors. With a meter, you can check if it is working or not. If not - order a replacement before replacing it.

Please observe all safety precautions when working on fuel systems.

Gas gage not working, gas tank seems full but it is not

You will need to remove the fuel tank from the truck and replace the fuel pump/fuel level sensor module that is inside the fuel tank. Use extreme caution when doing this as there is a real fire hazard.

Fuel gage goes to zero and then to full while driving

Sounds like the sending unit is bad, which is in the gas tank.
