You must replace the sending unit in the gas tank to correct this problem, or do you already know this?

SOURCE: 1966 Ford Mustang Gas Guage not working

I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

SOURCE: 2000 buick century custom. fuel gauge fluctuates

The sender unit has a fine resistance wire with a slider to read the level, the slider or wires are worn and making intermittent contact, the low fuel light is a seperate switch so it will still work.access to the sender is usually under the rear seat cushon, under the soundproofing and a cover, have a look and describe what you have .

Common problem on the 03-06 Silverado instrument clusters for the fuel gauge to go out. It's usually caused by one of two main problems, either the stepper motor on the cluster's circuit board is going out or the sending unit on the fuel pump is going out.

2003 Honda crv fuel gauge doesn't register full when filling up tank also twice while driving the gauge goes to empty and fuel light comes on


Could be the sending unit in the tank or the gauge on the dash.
A mechanic would test each component by disconnecting the harness at the tank.

Where is a fuel gauge for when your tank is empty located on a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica


It could be the gauge on the dash or the sending unit in the fuel tank is bad. If it is the sending unit ,the gas tank will most likely have to be taken out. And if the dash gauge the dash will have to be taken apart. Diagnosis of Stuck Fuel Gauge Is it Gauge or Sending Unit Here is a video how to test it.

Fuel gauge not giving the correct gauge level


more likely the fuel gauge in the dash is the problem, you can check this by taking the rear seat out to get to the fuel sending unit, then disconnect the connector while you have the ignition on and see if it change.
if it changes the sender is bad, if it doesn't the cluster is bad.

2002 Chevy Silverado 3500 Fuel gauge reads 1/2 when actually empty and with the ignition switch off the fuel gauge jumps to half the vehicle has dual tanks and the fuel pump module in the front tank was...


If this was not a problem before the pump replacement then the sender in the tank may of faied or is contaminated with sulfer which is corrosive to the silver electrical contacts.

Do a search on sulfur corrosion and fuel sender units. Gm has big problem with this. Its possable the stress from removing the old and installing the new pump created an issue with contacts. If this is the case you will now need a sender unit.

Fuel gauge doesn't register correctly


The fuel gauge sending unit is in the fuel tank in a module along with the fuel pump, and float guage. It sends an electronic signal to the fuel guage on your dash. When it becomes worn or the float may even have a leak in it, the unit sends incorrect info to your guage. The solution is to empty your fuel tank, drop it from the vehicle, remove and replace the entire module.
