SOURCE: Fuel gauge registers empty after fill up

It sounds to me like you have a short in your wiring harness at you fuel tank. there is a plug on top of your fuel tank that controls you fuel pump and your sending unit that tells you how much fuel is in the tank. This plug can be a real p.i.a to get to on some vehicles, you may have to take the vehicle to a shop to fix it, if you are not mechanically inclined.

SOURCE: petrol gauge stuck on empty and light constantly

Sounds like a broken gas tank sensor in the gas tank. The sending unit has probably gone out.

SOURCE: gas gauge stuck on empty

Mine did the same thing. If you've tried starting it with a flat battery, the needle twitches and comes back up on the underside of the gauge rest pin. You have to remove the instrument cluster and slowly rotate it so the needle goes back to the top side. Its happened to me three times now.

SOURCE: i have a lexus ls400 and the fuel gauge stop

The sending unit located in the gas tank must be replaced on most of these cars you can gain access to it by removing the back seat revealing an access cover allowing you to get to the sending unit remove retaining screws or locking ring and replace. You probably should be grounded and have a Haynse repair manual handy to walk you through this job it's not the easiest job but not to hard either unless the gas tank must be dropped down to access the sending unit if that's the case have a shop do the job that job is pretty tough.

SOURCE: I just bought a 98'

The computer does a sweep test everytime it senses power. Check it next time you turn the key to run the gages do a little self test. However the fuse and gage won't be your problem. They are very bad for the fuel level sensor in the tank getting corrupted or dirty and doesn't read properly. You can try to add port fuel injector cleaner to the tank, but problem will usually reoccur. You will need the fuel tank dropped and the level sensor replaced.

Also my gas guage is stuck on full. it goes to empty when I turn ignition swith to off.do I need a new guage ?


It could be the gauge or the sender, in the fuel tank, or the fuse to the sender. On some Hondas there's a voltage regulator, in the gauge assembly, holding fuel gauge and some others to 8V.

Guages not working,


If all voltages checked ok,then most probably its faulty instrument cluster board on which gauges are connected.Yes if cluster circuit board looks ok,then also it can be faulty.Somewhere there is minute short or burn on board then such prolem arises.
Also check the fuse box.One under hood and other under dash.Inspect each and every fuse and see if all are fine or not.

Fuel gauge shows full, even tank is empty.


Fuel gauge sending unit might of went out. My first guess, is the fuse. Look in your manual, see where fuel gauge fuse is and first replace it, if it just happend , it is mostly likely a fuse or connection issue.

I have a Volvo S40. The fuel gauge is stuck on empty despite having a full tank


Sounds as though the fuel sending unit is either stuck, or the float is broken. Try tapping the tank with a rubber hammer to see if that helps, other then that your next option would be to pull the sending unit out all together and replace.

I have filled up my gas but the gauge sais it is empty. I'm guessing a fuse is blown somewhere, how do I know which fuse needs to be fixed.


it could be a problem with your fuel sending unit it could be bad or stuck in the down(empty)position... that is the most likely problem but if it is a fuse it would be listed under gauge it is in the drivers compartment fuse box it will be a 10 amp fuse
