The most common cause of this is that the fuel level sending unit is defective and it can happen suddenly, often after a fill up. On most models the gas tank must be removed from the car to replace the fuel level sending unit.

2008 jaguar s series gas gage quit working


probably not all that difficult to fix it you have patience. The needle going way past full is an indication of a short before the sender unit or in the sender unit. Pull the power wire from the sender unit and see what the gauge does. IT should stay on the empty mark. IT may be just a fuel sender unit .

1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working


It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

The starter was replaced, but the gas needle moved clockwise to the stopper. The gas needle move the other way around, passed the full mark. I think it is a change in polarity?


Hello: I have had that occur several times, if you will get a strong magnet you can pull the needle back around to the correct position. (leave key off) If that don't work you will have to remove the cluster, remove the clear cover from the cluster and carefully move the needle back to the correct position. (this usually occurs when you connect the battery with the key on. (DO NOT CONNECT BATTERY WITH KEY ON IN ANY VEHICLE)

Need to know how to sweep or reset gas guage needle


I had the same make and model do this to me the other day. I had to remove the cover around the cluster and remove the clear lens, then move the needle around by hand. Then put is back together. It fixed it but what a pain.

Gas gauge stuck on empty


Adam, I like your solution, but this is easier:
1. Get a strong magnet
2. Use the magnet to move the needle into the top half of gage (don't take anything apart)
3. Test it by turning the car on.

Gas(gauge)problem


the sender unit is attached to the fuel pump in the tank.
it can be repaired but it is costly.the other option is to remove the cluster and make sure that the indicator needle is free to move and is not hanging up from a weak return spring or a warped cluster plate

Gas Gauge won't move


Replace the fuel sensor / sending unit, it is inside the gas tank, it is a lot of work to drop the gas tank, I have done it on other cars... If you want to do it make sure the tank is almost empty it is very heavy with all that gas inside make sure there is no open flames or cigarretes close
Good Luck
