Question about 2002 Audi A4
Sometimes the gauge shows empty or full when it is actually half full. Most of the time the reading is okay.
Your sending unit is getting flaky - it's a known issue. You can repair it though, rather than buy a new sender.
Do not do this job with any more than a 1/4 tank of gas or you'll get a fuel bath in the trunk.
Here's a DIY procedure on how to do it - 99% of the time on these cars, when there's a gas gauge issue, it's the broken wire they show in the procedure. I was out of solder at the time I fixed mine, so I used barrel clamp connectors to crimp a jumper wire into place on the broken ends of the wire, and that fixed it permanently.
Here's the link:)
Instead of replacing the sender, fix the visibly broken wire and it'll fix the failure.
