Question about 2005 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

Faulty fuel gauge

I have a 2005 2.0 D but the fuel gauge seems to be working upside down. The needle on the gauge has gone past the full mark when the iginition is off. When it is turned on the needle moves from the right to the left but at the bottom of the gauge as opposed to moving from left to right at the top of the gauge!

    Thanks. Any idea where the ground is for this?

    Thanks. All the other gauges are ok. Just the fuel gauge. It has happened before but then it seems to cure itself.

I'd suspect a bad ground in that circuit.

    If i remember right the ground is actually the ground straps for the gas tank... check and see if they are rusted alot.... it did occur to me just now it could be the relay located under the dash in the fuse panel for the fuel sending unit. any other guages on the dash working "funny"

Fuel Gauge wont move past 3/4 tank even with full tank


There is no easy fix.
Either the gauge on the dash is faulty, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit uses a float which may be getting stuck at the 3/4 mark.

I had the oil pressure sending switch replaced and the needle is still past the 80 mark


you will most likely find it is a faulty instrument cluster. what should have been done before replacing switch was a gauge sweep test this will run all gauges thru their range of motion and would show the oil gauge not responding. this is done with a scan tool. have that checked

2005 Pontiac Vibe Fuel Gauge stuck


The fix, unfortunately, is inside the fuel tank. You have to have the unit replaced. It's pretty maddening that something like that wouldn't even last 5 years. I have a 63 chev 1/2 ton that the gauge still works, and to my knowledge has never been touched.

Fuel gauge needle way past full, holding temp needle down so I cannot read temp either! 2005 with no low beams. Could problem be related?


Most likely this is the common 03-05 Cavalier instrument cluster problem where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board go out. It can be fixed, check this page for more on how to get it taken care of - Cavalier fuel gauge broken
