SOURCE: fuel gauge stuck on half full

I can tell you almost for certain your fuel level sending unit is bad, I have been able to fix them though. It requires removing the gas tank and then the fuel pump. You can if your inclined, bend the brushes on the small circuit board over more so they will make better contact on to it. Other wise its a new fuel pump assembly, check all plugs and wiring by unpluging and repluging them to insure no bad connect. It is possible it could be the guage itself, but in thirty years of fixing cars never had a bad guage

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

Fuel gauge Stuck

The most common way to find out is to test both components.
The sending unit in most vehicles grounds the gauge on the dash.
You would unplug the sending unit - pump harness at the tank and ground the sending unit wire. If the gauge climbs up to full the sending unit is at fault.
You could also measure resistance in the circuit in the tank when the tank is close to empty and after filling it up. The resistance should be different each time.

2006 Dodge Durango - Fuel gauge stuck on full, and won't move? What's wrong?

Either the circuit is shorted to ground, or shorted to power.
The sending unit in the tank provides ground to the gauge.
I would disconnect the harness at the tank and see what the gauge does. You may need a new sending unit.

Fuel gauge not working dodge intrepid 2002

A mechanic would check for voltage from the gauge at the sending unit connector at the tank. The sending unit grounds the gauge on the dash.
Not sure what the humming noise is, the computer controls the gas tank venting by a solenoid and the vapor canister.

My fuel gauge starts showing empty and dings when i know the fuel is full in a 2000 dodge intrepid. What needs fixed, gauge or sensor? If it is the sensor where is that located?

The fuel tank has the Rheostat that has a float and on which the float moves up to change the resistance to the gauge which is a volt meter.
So you need to locate the fuel tank to see the fittings here, removal of the wires to the rheostat will change the fuel readings, so as to confirm the gauge.
If so remove rheostat and move float on the outside with the connection of ground and lead externally to confirm as you will notice the change on the meter.

Fuel gauge on 1993 Dodge Dakota V8

Definitely the gauge can be changed, provided the float in the fuel tank is OK, i.e. no leaks. This float connects to a potentiometer which records the current flowing thru it and displays it in the gauge. So before replacing the gauge measure the current and match that against the quantity of fuel in the tank...............sodeep

When I fill my gas tank on my 2000 Dodge intrepid, the fuel gauge will move from full, drop to empty and then back to full again. It does this over and over until the tank is down to about 3/4 full.

HI, the fuel gauge sending unit is malfunctioning. this is located inside the fuel tank and, it is part of the fuel pump assembly. replacing this failing component will fix this issue.
