Fuel gauge not working 1997 suzuki vitara

The problem is this, had a new petrol tank put in my Suzuki Vitara put in as well at Suzuki dealership, since this my fuel gauge has not worked. They are saying that it is because my fuel pipes are corroded? Had mot done since this and mechanics say fuel pipes are fine. Are they passing the buck when it is a simple problem and should they be responsible to fix it?

    I hope this can be a simple repair, at least one without replacing my fuel lines, paid a small fortune to have new petrol tank fitted and ended up with another problem, thankyou for your help.

Rusted fuel pipe's or lines as we call them would not cause an electronic fuel guage to do anything, the problem is most likely the level sensor in the fuel tank, 99% of the time that is the problem

Is there an ascending unit in a 2000 suzuki Grand Vitara


you used to service stations to prove its full.
using auto shutoff? if not do that first.
no need to condemn any gauge for that. or use a dip stick into
tank filler and see if it is really full.
sure there is a sender unit in all cars. all.
the sender test is covered in the FSM. clearly
alldata.com too.
and at suzuki pit stop plus (google those. 1s hit every time)

only 2 tests. tell you which is bad. the gauge or the sender
first check the fuses, for ever and ever all electrical failures.
but usually the whole meter sections go dead with a fuse.

MY SUZUKI GRAND VITARA 2.O TD FUEL GAUGE IS AS STARTED TO RISE TO THE FULL MARK WHEN I KNOW IT IS ONLY QUARTER FULL


This is because the "fuel sender" in the tank has an open in the resistor. The sender works much the same as a float in a toilet bowl, but instead of closing a water line, it sweeps an electrical contact over a small wire. Depending on the position on the wire, a certain voltage is sent to the gauge, moving it up or down. When you have an open on the small wire, it does exactly what you are describing.

Car repair manual for a 1997 suzuki vitara v6 2ltr petrol 24v


Haynes don't cover that engine. I've found a copy of the H25 engine manual which is similar to the H20 engine we have. If you search for SQ416 in google you'll find a copy you can buy or if you're lucky you'll find a free download somewhere like I did!! :-) It has helped me loads.

Can I replace a suzuki vitara 1998 v6 engine with


If everything is the same - yes I would say check with Suzuki dealership. BUT in most cases the service department and the parts department will say no because they have different part #s. But if you have a good parts man he will do his homework to get the sale.
