Was the sending unit replaced

You say you had something done or checked

We have over 300 new people a day, come to this
site alone, that have not found a repair shop or dealer
that can resolve anything, at all

Why is that,I ask?

I have 1992 dakota factory manuals from mine old one

If you get specific about serious wire chasing I will
look things up for you.

SOURCE: 99 Pontiac Sunfire

I have a 1999 Sunfire and the fuel pump fuse kept blowing. I noticed it happened during accelerations only. After tracing this son of gun down by placing a jumper fuse between the fuel pump and the fuse box and also one from the fuse box to the relay that goes under the hood; i found the problem kept coming between the fuse box and engine. Make long story short I found the problem with a corroted positive battery cable (the main red cable). I could not tell before because it is insulated; but once i cut it, the problem was obvious when i saw all the green **** on the wires. I replaced the cable with a new one and the fuse blowing stopped. Hops this helps...........It drove me crazy for 5 months.

SOURCE: silverado 2000 5.3 4x4 gas gauge not working

there are 4 wires at the sender - and 3 wires for the vapour sensor-the two heavier wires are for the pump and the lighter wires are for the guage-the lighter purple wire should have 5 volts on it-if not you may have a wire or computer problem-th guage is an input to the pcm(computor) under the hood and then is transmitted via comm. line to the cluster-if the rest of the guages work in the cluster you need to look at the pcm or wiring to the tank

2000 Dakota quad cab fuel gauge wont work, jumps to full when started, fuel pump has been replaced. What next?


Check for a frayed wire touching metal and grounding out. The gauge works on resistance and it registering full indicates a short to ground. Either that or your gauge itself is bad.

2001 chevy suburban fuel gauge stoped working


If the sending unit was connected and grounded, I would guess the gauge in the cluster is faulty.

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.

    Fuel gauge doesn't work. checked fuses, didn't help


    The issue may be the the in tank fuel gauge float. Over time these can corrode and/or get gummed up which would cause it to get stuck. Another issue maybe the wires running from the in-tank pump to the gauge cluster, if one of the wires has become loose or broken, this would cause the issue as well.

    1993 Dodge Dakota 5.2 318 4x4, turns over, but no spark. Cat converter shot, removed. Plugs, cap, rotor replaced. MAP sensor recently replaced...will start and run once in a great while.


    Try switching the ASD Relay for another relay in the Fuse Box in the Engine Compartment. If the ASD Relay fails it cancels the power to the Hall Effect & Fuel Pump.
    If that doesn't change anything, check the wiring harness that travels down the left wheelwell for damage, It actually goes outside of the engine compartment, into the wheelwell where it can be damaged by rocks, road debris or a tire (if you've flexed the suspension, or had the truck off road). If the wiring there checks out, it leaves one other thing.
    The Hall Effect Sensor inside the Distributor.
