First check the fuses. Then check for power at the fuel tank wiring going to the sending unit for power. also check the grounds coming from the sending unit neither the fuel gauge or the fuel pump will work properly with no ground. mike

2000 ram 2500 5.9 gas motor. Drive down the road and it shuts off gauges are still on. No loss of electronics wont restart until the fuel gauge reads. New fuel pump tps and crankshaft position sensor.


When problem is ongoing, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? At the moment, I'm not sure what the fuel gage has to do with it? You could check voltage and ground for the fuel pump and fuel gage sending unit. I haven't looked at any of your wiring, yet.

96 jeep laredo stopped running gages quit and won't start even after replacing crank shaft sensor but it turns over like it wants to start


Crank sensor wont have any effect on starting, Cam position sensor would. Also check all your fuses.

Won't turn over. The instrument cluster won't work


ok iif the instrument cluster does not work.. before i give a solution can you tell me if it have atach and temp gage not a temp gage witha idiot light but a actual temp gage.. because if temp gage and fule gage hands are not in their proper place like if yo uhave a 1/4 tank of gas and it reads way past full and the temp gage is gone out of site way past say 240 degrees then it is your speedo head .. have this trouble the other day on a chevy 2002 cavalier.. replaced the head and wahla the car started. it seems the speedo head is tied in with the computer system on these cars.. and if the tach is not working you need not worry if you cannot find a head with a built in tach.. a normal speedo head with out the tach part will also work.. just when you change the head count the pins on the old one and compare it to the new one if they match then just plug it in and car should start..

low oil on some models will stop it from starting however I would say you have a fuel filter stoped up this happens sometimes when you run a car out of gas they pick up trash,

My heat gage quit working and my speedmeter quit to as my gas gage to what coud be wrong they all stoped at once and no dash light


That dash board uses ribbon connectors to connect to the wiring harnesses. Make sure the connectors haven't come free. You can pick up a used one that works from a parts yard for about $25 and replace the old one. This all assumes that the fuses for the dash are in good working order. The only reason I recommend replacing the cluster is because you lost too much at once and this could be caused by a short on the board that controls it all.

If the starter doesn't turn over the battery is dead or you need to replace the starter.

The gas gage not working is caused by the fuel level sender located in the fuel tank this will also need to be replaced.

Getting gas and fire but not starting


Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.
