I have a 2003 GMC Envoy and my gas gauge has been flowing up and down to empty and full recently it has stayed on empty. How do I fix it?


Ensure that all of the wire connections are clean, secure and corrosion-free.

  • 2 Check your fuel gauge fuse if the gauge's indicator stays on empty when your turn on the ignition. If the fuse is good, join the sending unit connector to ground. Replace the sending unit if the gauge indictor moves to the full line.
  • 3 Ground the terminal located on the back of the fuel gauge with a jumper wire if the indicator doesn't move. If it does move, consider replacing the wire between the fuel gauge and the sending unit. A poor ground is frequently responsible for fuel gauge problems.
  • 4 Release the wire that connects to the fuel tank's sending unit. Confirm that there's no worn insulation that would permit wire contact to the body or frame. A fuel gauge reading of full generally indicates a problem with the tank unit, not the wiring.

    Gas gauge quit working. Is there a fuse or sensor?


    It sounds like your Fuel Level Sending Unit, usually located with the Fuel Pump inside the gas tank, has gone out. The Fuel Level Sending Unit sends the signal to your ECU, and then it goes to the Fuel Level gauge. Replace the Fuel Level Sending Unit and your gauge should be back to normal.

    Fuel gage not working. Only a smsll light seen. Does the fuel pump need changing?


    As long as the car is running fine it's safe to say the fuel pump does not need to be replaced. However the fuel tank sending unit may need to be replaced assuming the fuel gauge itself isn't at fault. First check your owners manual if available for your fuse block info and check fuses then I'd look into the sending unit. Let me know if you need help with that

    My gas gauge wont register


    this problem is caused by a defective gas gauge sending unit, the sending unit is located inside the gas tank, check in the trucnk for an access plate, look under the trunk carpet area over the tank, if no access is found the fuel tank must be removed to replace the sending unit.

    Fuel gauge bouncing on 2000 chevy tahoe where is fuel pump relay


    I had previously replaced the failing fuel pump on my '98 K2500 when it went out entirely. I was ready to replace my 2000 K3500's fuel gauge as it was acting up.
    When I started the engine, the gauge would bounce from the middle to way past full then back. It would also jump sporadically while driving on level ground.
    I checked the electrical connections at the tank and made sure the frame ground strap located nearby was making good contact. Nothing changed until I removed the instrument panel and cleaned the connections on the back. The fuel gauge seems to be operating correctly now.
    There are videos on YouTube that show how to remove the instrument cluster if in doubt. Mine dash has a pop-in plastic bezel followed by 4 screws to hold the cluster in place. It took about a half hour to inspect & clean the dash connection vs. $250 to replace the pump/sending unit combo. Hope this helps.
