SOURCE: defective fuel guage on a 2005 GTO.How to repair

What you might have to do is check the gauges with a scanner.Not all scanners have this ability.The dealerships scanner can go into your body control module and work the gauges and if they work with the scanner then you can eliminate the gauge itself.The usual problem is with the fuel sending unit which incorporates the level sensor,pressure regulator,and the pump itself.So these are some of your options.Good luck.

I have a 2002 lincoln ls that has gas guage reading only a quarter tank when full. I know there is 2 pumps on this car, one is the primary pump under passenger back seat and a jet transfer pump on drivers...


Fuel pumps outside the gas tank have nothing to do with fuel gauge readings. There is a fuel level sender unit inside the tank with a float which supplys variable ground circuit to the gauge. If you can find the wire to this unit, you can ground it to see if the gauge now goes to full. If so, sender unit in tank is bad, or has bad wiring/ground.

I have a 2006 Pontiac Montana. My gas guage is extremely unreliable. I run out of gas when the guage shows a quarter tank. And the digital readout for fuel range will say I have anywhere from 65 to 130...


I would guess you will have to replace the sending unit in the tank. A mechanic can check the sending unit with a meter and find out if the sending unit is faulty or the gauge on the dash.

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle


The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

05 grd caravan fuel gauge showed quarter tank and


The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

I have fuel pick up problems on a 1995 bonneville....gas guage says 1 quarter tank of fuel


I believe that the fuel pump and gas gauge are all one. They are located in the fuel tank. When they start going bad they sometimes start reading the amount of fuel left in tank incorrectly.

Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas


The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.
