Try supplying the radio with a new power line and earth, sounds like the radio power has been taken from the wrong place or there is a faulty earth commection.

Today while I was driving, The instrument where it telles you how many miles left till empty read 27mi. all of a sudden it started counting down rapidly, within seconds it had went from 27 mi to 4mi left...


Sounds like float in fuel tank is sticking. Usually caused by using cheap gas. Fill it up and add a bottle of STP gas treatment. It might take more then one tankful w/STP to clean it completely. TIP: don't rely on the computer generated "mileage left" especially when that low on fuel, that is only an estimate. And also don't let it get that low on a regular basis because it will damage your fuel pump, fuel is used to cool electric pump in fuel tank and running it that low will shorten the life of your fuel pump.

My gas needle stopped working. how will i know if gas tank is empty. If van sits in park and running the needle drop to E and the low fuel light comes on, then when you drive it goes back to a full tank....


You can take out the part of the dash where the guages are and change the little sensor/fuse behind the fuel guage, they should have a replacement part at orileys or autozone

Gas gauge stuck on empty


Adam, I like your solution, but this is easier:
1. Get a strong magnet
2. Use the magnet to move the needle into the top half of gage (don't take anything apart)
3. Test it by turning the car on.

2001 Nissan Sentra "check engine soon" light comes on after gas fill up, goes out when tank is about half empty. It is not the gas cap.


Do you use only one gas station? Try another station / brand, it could be that the gas supplied to your station is off. I had a similar problem with my old Land Rover, then we found out that there was some illuminating paraffin in the gas. It didn't have a light to show a problem, but just didn't have power everytime I used a certain gas station. The dealer is now under investigation for diluting his gas to make some easy bucks.

I think the fuel pump went out on my 93 GMC 1500 truck.


try changing the fuel pump. When the tank goes empty it sucks the dirt into the lines.

Gas Gauge won't move


Replace the fuel sensor / sending unit, it is inside the gas tank, it is a lot of work to drop the gas tank, I have done it on other cars... If you want to do it make sure the tank is almost empty it is very heavy with all that gas inside make sure there is no open flames or cigarretes close
Good Luck
