It could be a problem with your electrical system, or it could just be a faulty sensor. You should probably consult a mechanic.

SOURCE: gas guage always reads full

It could be a faulty sending unit, which will require the removal of the fuel tank. Make sure all of your fuses are good before you do anything else, as all the gauges are electrical. It is possible you have a bad gauge, but 9 times out of 10, it's the sending unit.

SOURCE: gas guage not reading accurate

Your sending unit inside of the fuel tank is probably faulty. Unfortunately you have to drop the tank to change it.

Ajkill is right. I had the same problem with the fuel light always being on and the guage read empty no matter how much fuel is in the tank. I had to have the fuel level sensor in the tank replaced. This is something that they have to drop the tank for. It was about $400 with the part and labor at the dealership.

Fuel guage sometimes read empty when there is gas in the tank?


Check that there are no holes in the float. If the fuel is getting into the float, it will give a false reading. Another thing is to check the ground on the float sensor. If it's not connected tightly, it will create a false reading too.

GAS GAGE WANT STOP READING EMPTY WHEN GAS IS IN IT


To confirm if the fault is with the Rheostat float within the fuel tank or the fuel guage in the dashbboard, you can remove the wiring to the fuel tank float. If the guage reading changes- to full- then the guage is good and the fault can be a jammed rheostat which can be removed from the tank and replaced after draining the tank. The guage can be tested on the outside with a ground wiring to the plate of the fittings and as the float is moved the guage must show a change in reading. if not the voltage must be measured to confirm the working of the guage.

Check gauges light


Possible bad guage, bad wiring, or bad sending unit. Check each one independently of each other, start with wiring first, then sending unit.
