Gas gauge problems with 2004 Buick Rendezvous

Does anyone know how to fix the gas gauge on the 2004 Rendezvous? Mine is stuck at the bottom between the full and empty mark... Way past full, it won't move. Is there a fuse I can try replacing?

    I have a similiar problem. My gauge will read empty, then when I pull into the gas station, it will only allow between $10 to $22. It will at that time read full, but about 40 miles later, read empty again. Do you think I still need to replace the sending unit and please give me an estimate of it's price to repair?

    Thanks

    I have a similar problem. My gas gauge bounces up and down. It will read full for awhile, then half, back to full, then below half. Well you get the picture. It that also the sending unit? Not sure if it's my imagination, but it didn't start happening until I used a certian brand of gas.

No, there is not a fuse for this. Unfortunately, you have a bad sending unit. In order to replace the sending unit you have to drop the gas tank. Sooo............drive it more to get rid of all of that gas and it will be easier to put back up.

How to adjust gas gauge to read right not reading way over filled like it does now. When 1997 chev 350 vortec truck gauge is at 1 st red mark close to empty, better not past gas station ! ! !


the fuel level sender is inside the fuel tank, part of the fuel pump assembly. did you or was the tank replaced before??they may have bent the float arm on reassembly . you can buy the sender from your parts supply store .you will have to drop the tank to do this it clips onto the side of the pump assembly. run it almost dry first as the tank is big n very heavy even 1/4 full. you can try to bend the old arm

but its very hard on the "sender" as for level indicator full to empty, think of the shape of the tank narrow at top to widest point in the middle (full to half) wide middle to narrow bottom( half to empty)

its just an overall volume thing

The gas gauge for the front tank on my 1992 F150 is stuck past full


You probably have a ground wire not making contact to ground on the front tank sending unit. OR the sending unit itself inside the tank is faulty. Either way, when a gas guage goes to full all the time (empty or full), this indicates that NO ground is available for the sending unit.

Fuel Gauge wont move past 3/4 tank even with full tank


There is no easy fix.
Either the gauge on the dash is faulty, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit uses a float which may be getting stuck at the 3/4 mark.
