Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

Electrical I Have a few problems and would like to know where to begin. At first the fuel gauge would go all over the place. I assumed it was the sensor in the tank. Then a few weeks later, a couple of dash lights(back/night lights) quit working and now the wipers work only occasionally. Is all related or just coincendence? its a 2000 olds silhouette 2WD with 80K on it. And i forgot the traction doesn't work either.

The only thing the items have in common, the G200 ground. I would check the ground attachment to the body, should be located on the driver side under the kick panel trim around the door jam area.
Take a look and let me know.

Where is the fuel off switch on a 2000 dodge intrepid

Fuel off switch ? no such thing ! Which engine does yours have ? Three different ones for your vehicle .2.7 , 3.2 , 3.5
I'm looking at a wiring diagram for the fuel pump circuit of your vehicle , two fuse's a relay , the fuel pump an the PCM -powertrain control module - engine computer ! I'am assuming your vehicle doesn't start an you think there is a fuel delivery problem , why ? Did you hook up a fuel pressure gauge an none was showing on the gauge ? Do you know how to test for B+ voltage at a relay ? An how to test for control by the PCM ? Videos on youtube ! Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation If you can't fix it after watching this your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop !

My ford focus starts but then cuts out after a few seconds.. what could this be?

Assuming all vacuum and electrical connections are ok,replace the fuel filter. If already done, check for proper fuel pump operation. This is done by connecting a fuel pressure gauge to a fitting on the fuel rail.

Fuel gage not working. Only a smsll light seen. Does the fuel pump need changing?

As long as the car is running fine it's safe to say the fuel pump does not need to be replaced. However the fuel tank sending unit may need to be replaced assuming the fuel gauge itself isn't at fault. First check your owners manual if available for your fuse block info and check fuses then I'd look into the sending unit. Let me know if you need help with that

Fuel Gauge reads empty, but tank IS full

the float in your gas tank seems to have water in it....water is heavier than gas, that's why gas floats on top of water....try putting something like HEAT in it to dry up the water in your tank....
