Turn the key on (engine off), then press and hold the RESET button until the flashing TPMS warning light goes off. Or, if it is not flashing, hold the RESET button until the light flashes three times. Turn the key off. But the relearn procedure is not complete until the vehicle is driven at 19 mph or faster for at least an hour.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on

This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

SOURCE: gas gauge

The float that moves the gas hand is possibly stuck in the tank. If there's isn't an access hole in the rear of the vehicle you'll have to drop the tank. Unless it becomes free on it's own. Hope this is helpful. Please rate. Thanks

SOURCE: 2002 honda crv fuel gauge moves really slow.

I had the same problem. My battery was going bad. When I replaced it with a new one, the fuel gauge worked fine.

SOURCE: Full tank of gas and getting low fuel indicator on dash

Bad fuel level sensor. Unfortunately it is located inside the gas tank. Fairly common problem on GM's. Due to sulphur in fuel. Corrodes the sensor tabs. Expensive to have repalced and NOT a do-it-yourself project, unless you have dropped a tank before.

Died while driving on freeway, no spark or fuel. but dash lights work. And it turns over but no start


Sounds like the fuel pump went, check the fuses to make sure that's not it. If it is, you can swap it out with a fuse you're not going to need right now. One simple test is to turn the key almost to the start point but not quite, just enough to light up the dash and power up the console - that's when you should listen for a 2 to 5 second humming noise coming from the gas tank, that's the fuel pump pressurizing the tank. Older cars vacuum gas, newer ones blow it out. If you don't hear the noise then it's probably the pump.That would explain while it died while driving as well. Hope that helped , Grim

I have a 2010 Toyota Tundra. How do I reset the low washer fluid warning light?


With a Hammer. No, seriously, it should reset just by it gauging the fluid level. If it doesn't, then it is probably just stuck, and needs a little help. Hitting on the tank with something like a rubber mallet should do the trick.

Truck dies, acts like it is getting to much fuel, used a quarter tank of gas in 8 miles


Clogged Gas Filter

Worn out & Blocked Exhaust Converter

Bad Ground at Fuel Pump

The different gas gauge readings would indicate a ground
issue with the sending unit in the fuel tank & possibly the
fuel pump shares the same ground or it is worn out.

I would check fuel pressure with a gauge & the fuel may be
there, but not enough volume

A fuel pump can last 4 years or 18 years

2000 Ford Contour hesitates or stalls when turning left or on inclines at or below 1/2 tank of gas


Your best bet , take an have a fuel pressue an flow test done . If you think it's fuel related . I'm sure you probably don't have the tool's to do these tests. We test , not guess as to what could be the problem . If clogged fuel filter it wouldn't get any fuel an it wouldn't start an run at all .

Car dies on freeway.Never overheated!!! What could it be.I'm guessing the fuel pump


Hopefully you don"t need gas first in the tank.While driving did your motor seem to ruff suddenly and as you went slower to a stop did you pull over and turn car off? When you turned it on again did it start up really ruff without giving gas.Can be that you need a fuel injector replaced you can not clean it because it also works electronic.Toyota runs better on higher octane period.

02 yukon died on freeway electric problem or fuel


When you said checked the fuel filter, did you mean changed the filter?? And does the Battery hold 12 volts?? Check the battery to make sure it has 12 volts. If you have a second car, take the alternator off and bring it to a auto parts store like Auto Zone and they can test it free of charge and battery too. Change the fuel filter, if both are good then check all the fuses and relay, Pay attention to the fuel pump fuse and ECM fuse. If everything has is good then it's going to be a bad fuel pump, which is located in the gas tank. That requires to dropping the tank to get to the fuel pump. Good luck and hope this helps.
