Question about 1998 Ford Escort
I have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2. I had someone replace my battery and he put it in backwards blowing out my gas pump and gas gauge. I did replace the fuel pump and also had a new battery installed. However, my fuel gauge still reads full. I have had all of the fuses checked and they are all working. How can I fix this? : )
Sometimes the pointer gets stuck on the wrong side of the stop post. Try fishing a lenght of stiff wire through the trip odometer reset button and hole. Just lift the pointer over the post and it will fall back in place. If you can't do it that way you will have to remove the cluster part way and drill a small hole in the plastic case above or beside gauge in between the clear plastic cover and gauge face. This happens more times than you would think. The reversed polarity causes the pointer to spin in the opposite direction and it gets hung up.
