Hello, you didn't mention if the seats are power or not. If power, do you hear any clicking when you push switches? If not blown fuse for drivers seat. If not power seats than cable for locking mechanism broke or came off and won't unlock seat from current position. Your sending unit inside your tank is faulty, most likely. It is due to faulty or bad connections on sending unit which in probably attached to fuel pump inside tank. My gauge moves alot when I drive and I replaced my
pump/sending unit 5 times already. It's just the way they are making them. The only time I get an accurate reading is at a stop or smooth road.

SOURCE: 99' blazer gas gauge eratic

I have the same problem on my 99 ZR2 Blazer. This is the rheostat in the gas tank. I bought my part in Ebay for $27. The only issue is that you have to drop the gas tank and pull the sending unit to install. Hope this helps, I hear from other message boards that it is a very common problem in these vehicles.

SOURCE: faulty gas gauge

Have a 2001 chev and it does the same thing. It is a common problem. It is a faulty in tank sender, not the fuel pump. You can just replace the sending unit by removing tank. If you want more information please get back to me.

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: Full tank of gas and getting low fuel indicator on dash

Bad fuel level sensor. Unfortunately it is located inside the gas tank. Fairly common problem on GM's. Due to sulphur in fuel. Corrodes the sensor tabs. Expensive to have repalced and NOT a do-it-yourself project, unless you have dropped a tank before.

Fuel pumps outside the gas tank have nothing to do with fuel gauge readings. There is a fuel level sender unit inside the tank with a float which supplys variable ground circuit to the gauge. If you can find the wire to this unit, you can ground it to see if the gauge now goes to full. If so, sender unit in tank is bad, or has bad wiring/ground.

2008 Kia Amanti power seat is not working on the drivers side, passenger side works


You will need either a new/salvaged motor or switch for your seat. One way to troubleshoot is to apply a 12-volt current to the seat motor's power connections and see if the motor moves. If the motor moves (even sluggishly), then the most likely culprit is the switch.

Why does the fuel gauge stay on full all the time?


Fuel sender unit could be faulty and showing a full tank all the time. Basically the gauge is a volt meter and the float arm adjusts the voltage going to the fuel gauge when it moves up and down. If it's stuck for some reason it'll show full when it's at the top.

A local garage or auto centre can fix this easily or if you're good with spanners, it's usually located under the rear passenger seat where you can find the access to the top of the tank.

Sounds like a ground is loose somewhere, Electrical problems are hard at that point especially when it is a ground because there is no 12v currant to chase. Ground wise, they are all easy to find on this car, Two are under the battery tray, one ground bolt will have 5 wires, the other two, the others are on the corner of the valve cover (drivers side), The drivers side on the "dash Bar"( the bar that your dash mounts too) and on the front of the block toward the passenger side
Good luck

Gasoline gauge is erratic; does not show true reading


Most likely it's the sender unit inside the gas tank. Here's a quick test to determine if problem is your dash gauge or the sender unit. At the gas tank, unplug the electrical connector and use a jumper wire to ground the gauge sender wire on the car side of connector (not the tank side of connector). With key on the dash gauge should move to full, meaning your dash gauge is good, but the sender inside tank needs replacing. Check with Ford or a ford guy to see if your tank has to be removed from car to access sender unit. Some cars today have access panels to tank under rear seat.

If both passengers and drivers side retractable belts have stopped moving, then it's likely the controller that's located under the passengers seat has gone bad. If only one side has stopped retracting and moving then that side motor has probably gone bad.

Maybe you problem is with the switch, or check if power seat circuit has the regular fuse or rather one of those thermal ones.

The fuse panel is located on the left hand side of the instrument panel facing the drivers side door.

It might not be anything wrong with your fuel sending unit. Keep an eye on your other gauges. I own a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville GXP. All of my gauges have started acting erratically. It started with my Temp. gauge, moved on to my speedometer, and now my oil pressure , fuel level and batty volt gauges are affected too. Its a very common problem with GM vehicles.
