Unlikely to be The Gauge Itself, This Is Classical Sending Unit Problem, Fuel Sending Unit Is Located IN FUEL TANK and Is A Bit PRICEY but Necessary

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

2008 mariner will not start


It may be the park switch. Try taking it out of park and starting it in neutral. Hope this helps

How to repair


The problem you have is caused by a defective fuel level sending unit, when you move the fuel moves and the gauge jumps around. Pull the gas tank out and replaced the fuel level sending unit.

I had absolutely no power and I couldn't even jump


No Power? Do you mean that the engine would not crank when you turned the key? Did you have dash lights? Dome lights? If you had some kind of lighting, you had electrical power. and if that is so then it sounds like your transmission range selector switch may be faulty or needs adjustment. Or VERY POSSIBLY, you might not have put it ALL the way in Park when you turned the car off the last time. If you try it now does it start? If not try putting it into park a little harder. Does that work? If not put in Neutral and try it. If that works the Gear selector switch Is bad or in need of adjustment.

My 2004 chrysler pacifica will not start. it cant be the battery because i had it jumped with my other car for about 15 min. and nothing. then when i just gave up. i but the gear in neutral, and it...


It still could be the battery, your trying to jump the car for 15 minutes would have given it a partial charge. BUT I would suspect the park/neutral switch. So I would suggest that you "play" with trying to start your vehicle in park, then neutral, park, then neutral and see what happens.

My friend has on 04 Murano. She couldn't start it due to either battery or alternator. (We're yet to find out) We had to put it in neutral to move it out from her parking spot in order to try and jump...


Most cars have a release button under the steering wheel. It will be recessed and hidden under a plastic plug. You would have to use a long screwdriver to stick in the hole and push on the release button. I think the button releases the gear shift so it can be moved the the park position. It's unusual that you could not jump start the vehicle. I have run into a few cars that the battery was so drained that they would not take a jump until the jumper cables were left hooked up for a few minutes with the jumper car running at fast idle. Since the battery went dead, there may be an issue with the GM anti theft system. Sometimes the security system, will prevent the car from starting, even with a new battery. If it happens, you will have to take the car to a dealership to get the car started. More of GM's faltering engineering.

you may have broken the shift cable, that's why it shows the vehicle is in park and won't go in any gear.
put your car in neutral with engine off and try to push it. if it does not move then you know it's in park and the cable is broke

Gas gauge jumps past full mark by 1/2 inch when key is turned on, then drops back and jiggles while in park, when you put it in drive the jiggling stops.


fuel level sensor it will eventually set a check eng light. the unit is on top of the fuel pump assembly it is a little black sensor that can be changed by itself or if u wish a new pump assembly will fix it also.
