    Just Bought a 1997 3500 from local dealer Diesel Gauge say E and low light is on but tank is full.

    Is this common or maybe wires just broke or not connected?

Sounds like the sending unit has a flat spot very commmon on dodges .the sending unit can get replaced with out replacing the whole pump. the pump has to be removed from the yourself a favor and do the wires one at a time so they are in the right spots. the fuel module which is a pump and asending unit is very expensive over three hundred i believe but the sending unit is less than a hundred maybe even less.this should repair your problem

1994 dodge ram 1/2 ton. It runs fine until I have less than a half a tank of gas. Then it tries to cut out/backfire and won't even go over 30 mph.

Is it possible the gauge is broken? Or it is possible the filter on the pump is plugged and it only runs right when gas can spill over the top, into the pump. Have you hooked up a fuel pressure gauge?

96 Dodge Ram Gas Gauge always on empty

The fuel pump and the sensor is altogether as one assembly. So if you buy the pump you would also be buying the sensor. Just for your information the pump is located in the gas tank under the bed, so you have two ways to change it. One is take the bed off (which is a lot easier if you have a full gas tank). But if its empty than use a jack to lower the tank down from underneath the truck. I hope this helps.
