Reasons for a gauge on your diesel not working could be an aftermarket speaker wire grounding out, or a brake controller. Check all wiring to make sure things are connected properly.

    i got this van not long ago and i was told that "dont believe the fuel gauge, when the orange fuel light comes on, there is about 20klm's left till it runs out" so i dont know wether its the dash gauge or the actual sender on the tank, i just wanted to find out if this was a common problem and could be directed what to do first, this is an 1984 2Y petrol model.. ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated..??

    The most common way to check it is to pick a point on the gauge and fill the tank. If the gauge shows half full it should take half the capacity to fill it. About the only way to determine if the problem is the gauge or the sending unit is to replace one or the other. A mechanic could measure resistance of the sending unit if it is out of the tank.

Does the fuel gauge works with a separate fuse


most fuel gauges draw power from the dash gauge or panel accessory's fuse ,if only that one gauge is bad , most likely the sender in the fuel tank has let out and died on you , tank will need drained and removed to change this sensor , also I did have the little plug on sensor on tank pop off one time on me that kept the gauge from working too

If your fuel gauge isn't working , it's not a fuse ! The gauge or the sending unit in the fuel tank is bad . If you had other thing's not working in the instrument cluster I would say probably a fuse. There is not a fuse just for the fuel gauge .

How to replace fuel gauge on 1984 Grand Marquis


Are you sure its not the fuel sending unit and not the fuel gauge itself.Because the sending unit controls the fuel gauge level and if the float gets stuck then the fuel gauge will not work.

Temp gage and fuel gage will stop working at the same time, then will start working at the same time.


you need to change the fuel gauge, fuel gauge goes bad so does the temp gauge, runs thru fuel gauge then to temp
