SOURCE: Trying to locate electrical junction to test fuel level sensor

Fuel Level Indication System The fuel level indication system is a magnetic gauge system. It consists of a magnetic fuel gauge (9280) mounted in the instrument cluster (10849) and a sending unit located in the fuel tank (9002) with an instrument cluster gauge amplifier (10E849) in series between the two. No instrument voltage regulator is used with this system. Fuel Gauge
The magnetic gauge movement consists of three primary coils, one of which is wound at a 90-degree angle to the other two. The coils form a magnetic field which varies in direction according to the variable resistance of the sender unit which is connected between two of them. A primary magnet, to which a shaft and pointer are attached, rotates to align to this primary field, resulting in pointer position. The bobbin/coil assembly is pressed into a metal housing which has two holes for dial mounting. There is no adjustment, calibration or maintenance required for these gauges. The instrument cluster amplifier is calibrated to the fuel gauge. The instrument cluster amplifier and fuel gauge must be replaced as a system. Instrument Cluster Gauge Amplifier/Check Gauge Module
The instrument cluster gauge amplifier electrically averages fuel sender readings so the fuel gauge displays actual fuel level and not fluctuations due to sloshing in fuel tank. The instrument cluster gauge amplifier is a small printed circuit board which latches into a pocket on the back of the instrument cluster. The electrical connections for ignition, ground, input from fuel sender and output to fuel gauge are made through a spring-type connector on the instrument cluster gauge amplifier to the instrument cluster printed circuit (10K843) on the instrument cluster. There are no provisions for calibration or adjustment of the instrument cluster gauge amplifier.
Fuel Sending Unit
The fuel sending unit consists of a variable screened resistor made up of a ceramic substrate. It is controlled by the action of an attached float in the fuel tank. When the fuel level is low, resistance in the sending unit is low. When the fuel level is high, the resistance in the sending unit is high. As the float moves from empty to full, the resistance will gradually and continuously increase. f9e3b50.gif

SOURCE: How to remove fuel lines from fuel tank 2001 Ford Ranger

special tool (about $15 at any parts store). It pushes in around the fuel line to release a clip inside , then the fuel line just slides off. Sometimes takes some wiggling and jiggling.

SOURCE: Do I need to remove the gas tank to fix the fuel

The fuel level sensor is on the recall list for your truck. Take it straight to the dealership and let them fix it.

Fuel level sensor


It is located on the fuel pump module which is located in the fuel tank. The fuel tank will need to be removed from the vehicle in order to service the fuel level sensor/sending unit.

P0463 Fuel Level Sensor Circuit High Input Any ideas on the problem and possible solutions?


P0463 - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit High Input
An excessively high voltage is sent from the sensor is sent to ECM.

The fuel level sensor is mounted in the fuel level sensor unit. The sensor detects a fuel level in the fuel tank and transmits a signal to the ECM or PCM.

It consists of two parts, one is mechanical float and the other side is variable resistor. Fuel level sensor output voltage changes depending on the movement of the fuel mechanical float.


Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
- Fuel level sersor circuit harness or connectors is open or shorted
- Fuel level sensor may be faulty

Possible solution
Replaced fuel level sensor.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

2006 ford 500 fuel gauge only shows 1/4 tank after filling tank, also is saying low fuel warning.


On most of your newer cars the fuel level sensor is located in the tank with the fuel pump.The only way to test it for proper operation is to remove the fuel pump and test the sensor.Unfortunitly your tank has to be removed because the pump and sensor as one unit.The fuel pump costs about 219.00 up to 229.00 depending on where your live plus your labor and that price changes from area to area.I hope that solves your problem for you.
