Could be the gauge on the dash, or the sending unit in the tank, or the wiring between the two components.

you need a new fuel sending unit. it is in the gas tank. you have to remove the tank and fuel pump assy. not an easy job. if you do it yourself $300 with new pump and sending unit. a dealer will be $1200, we just did our 2001 suburban

2007 F350 4x4 regular cab V10 gas guage quit working I had the sending unit and fuel pump changed the fuel guage went to 1/4 and sat there. Any tips? Fuel guage wont work.


I'm assuming this has dual tanks, do you know if it is not working on both tanks ?
Most people would check the circuit for the gauge at the tank. The sending unit grounds the gauge on the dash.

My gas gauge on my 93 ford mustang quit working. the gauge is stuck on full. Help


i suspect a broken wire between guage and sender unit in tank, but the sending unit could be bad,find the wire to the float guage in the tank and disconnect it, if fuel level does not change then then touch the wire to a ground, if the guage changes then the wire is ok and the unit is bad, if it does not change check wiring and guage for faults.

I have a 2004 trailblazer 4 wheel drive and the gas, tac, and oil gages have quit working, they all point due south, service engine light keeps comming on, could this be a major problem?


Honestly i am having sort of the same problem with my guages but my rpm's and fuel guage are not working..... this is my second trailblazer and there always has been something wrong with the guages... what i think it is the cluster itself.... maybe the cluster or the wiring is screwed up........ if u got the engine light then go to auto zone and get it tested for FREE.... they will give u the code then go see inside whats wrong with your car.. i did it last night and kind of figured the problem........ goodluck

Gas gauge not working property


Pontiac has a problem with the sender for the fuel guage. A quart of transmission fluid in a full tank of gas usually fixes it. The "engine" light, won't be on because of that. Quite often that is the air filter or fuel cap.
