Question about 1992 Chevrolet Caprice
1998 Chev Malibu. Had damage to passenger doors.
Body shop replaced one door, and repaired the other. They transferred window motors, and all electrics from original door into new shell. Since thenFuel Guage hangs down to bottom of guage, and when key switched on it jumps to
Empty, and stays there even with full tank.
Could wires have been damaged or is guage just
shot, or fuse blown or what? Any suggestions.
Shop says they did nothing wrong.
Hello: Thanks for the follow up. Yes I did fix it. Somehow the needle had slipped over the rest pin
on the guage face, so it rested down in the bottom of the guage. When power was applied it came
up but was now stuck UNDER the rest pin at the EMPTY mark. I got a suitable piece of wire, and
manouvered it through the Odometer reset shaft hole, and carefully worked the needle back on TOP
of the rest pin......Problem solved. I have leared that this happens quite frequently to these Malibus.
