Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

The fuel gauge on my Deere CT332 track loader shows empty all the time, even after filling the tank. When you unplug the wires connected to the sending unit on top of the tank, the gauge shows full. When you cross those two wires, it moves to empty. Do I have a short in the wiring/connections or is the sending unit bad?

SOURCE: 1966 Ford Mustang Gas Guage not working

I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

Hello,
It is ok for your gauge to go to 1/4 when off. It is even some what normal. The gauge is going to its neutral position. Keep in mind it is also comon for the sending unit to fail in this year / make of vehicle.

I hope this helps.

Fuel gauge Stuck


The most common way to find out is to test both components.
The sending unit in most vehicles grounds the gauge on the dash.
You would unplug the sending unit - pump harness at the tank and ground the sending unit wire. If the gauge climbs up to full the sending unit is at fault.
You could also measure resistance in the circuit in the tank when the tank is close to empty and after filling it up. The resistance should be different each time.

My 1992 dodge van fuel gauge stoped working slowly, it read full when i filled it i would drive about 10 miles then it would show empty a few more miles then show half tank then empty now nothing.. always...


i would check wires leading to tank sounds like you have a bad connection or possiably a bad ground wire if connection s look good and your getting good ground more than likely you have a bad sending unit in the tank

Remove the sender wire from the fuel tank and short it to ground (metal part of tank).

If the fuel gauge goes to full then your sender unit is faulty and replace it.If not ,please come back to me .

Please leave positive feedback if you feel I have helped you.

Petrol gauge was working fine before a 5 week holiday. Car not used during this time. Now petrol gauge shows tank empty, even after I had filled the tank. What is wrong? How do you fix this?


sounds like the float is either got a hole in it and is full of fuel, or the whole float assembly is seized in the empty position.
was the car left for 5 weeks empty of fuel?

2004 Camry XLE fuel gauge problem


Check online in other forums of this particular issue. Others may have had the same issue and have found answers through other sites online. Sound like a bad sending unit "fuel gauge sensor". Unfortunatly, it may be a requirement to remove the fuel tank to gain access to this fuel sensor. If you dont have the means to repair this problem you can always keep track by the mileage that you put on your vehicles tripometer. I know thats a pain but it wont cost you any money until you choose to have the repair done.Estimate your mpg's and the size of your fuel tank by the gallons, and multiply the two. Be sure to keep track and have enough fuel not to run out! Its always better to keep half a tank than an eighth of a tank!

Pajero NK87 petrol guage not working, shows empty even when tank is full


Sounds like the Fuel sender unit in the fuel tank needs replacing however you may want to check that the electrical plugs are contacting properly,Check that the gauge is working by putting a piece of wire from the sender unit wire to the chassis,at the fuel tank sender unit plug,Turn ignition on while watching gauge if it moves toward fill turn ignition off and remove wire to chassis.If gauge moves it means from the fuel tank to fuel gauge is intact and not your problem.
