You can unplug the harness at the tank and see if the gauge circuit is shorted to ground between there and the dash.

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.

most of the time this is simply just the float in the gas tank getting stuck had the same problem in my car. unfortunately you have to access the gas tank to fix, but it is an easy fix. hope this helps any questions let me know.

SOURCE: Replaced Fuel Sending unit on 1986 Chevy Truck

Check the ground wire at the wiring harness at the fuel tank. If it has a good connection then check the power wires to the tank. You may have a bad pigtail going to the tank. A replacement harness is available at NAPA.

Common problem on the 03-06 Silverado instrument clusters for the fuel gauge to go out. It's usually caused by one of two main problems, either the stepper motor on the cluster's circuit board is going out or the sending unit on the fuel pump is going out. Check out this blog post about the problem - Silverado fuel gauge problems

Gas gauge and tach do not read proper readings! What will cause this? The gas guage will peg past full when there is only quarter tank and tach reads 4500 RPM at idle

The gas tank sounds like a bad ground usually located under the car at the gas tank. I do not know but maybe they both tach and fuel gague get their ground from the same place.

I have a 1999 Buick Century Custom and my gas guage doesnt work right, it moves from full to empty and everywhere in between when im driving it. What could it be?

the sender unit might have gone bad or it could just be the gauge. pull the dash cluster and check for continuity on the gas gauge lead

Fuel& Temperature Gauges are sticking Example gas tank full of fuel but only reads half full, temperature reads hot but engine is running at normal temperature What is wrong and how can we fix it

they could be seperate problems. the fuel level sender in the tank may be bad. the 2 wire coolant temp sensor may be faulty. there may be a bad ground some where or a bad connection in the harness. although it is common for the circuit boards in the cluster to go bad and you get funny readings on one half or the other. i would start diagnosing the cooling problem first. those engines have an air bleed valve above the t-stat. make sure there isnt a pocket of super heatad steam in the system (first indication of a small leak). the cts also controls the fan relays through the pcm. are the fans comming on as the temp guage passes half way? what does the guage do when the key is on, engine off, cts unpluged, and the connector jumpered or grounded? the guage should have a full sweep if it doesnt sweep the cluster or harness are suspect

Just bought a one owner 1991 Saturn SC - great condition. Need assistance with problem - fuel guage only goes down to 1/2 tank and then car is out of gas. If we put 6.5 gal of gas in, guage is back to full...

Well I would think that the tank's sender unit, or the gauge is bad. As the tank has to be dropped to get at the sender, your easiest bet is the gauge. Look on ebay, most likely have to get the whole cluster, for a few bucks. Look on youtube for instructions about getting the cluster out.

If you are a real geek, you could find the sender's resistance values, find a similar variable resistor at radio shack and use that to fool the gauge. See if the gauge sweeps across the whole range of its motion. If the gauge works fine then it is drop the tank time, get a new fuel pump while you are in there on a car that old. You could well find that someone else has beaten you to the new pump and reinstalled it with something wrong with the range of motion on the sensor.

Gas guage not working properly ,it has a full tank of fuel but the guage only shows a half of a tank

If it isnt in the cluster, its more than likely the fuel level sending unit. That is in the fuel tank.

Fuel gauge stop working

Most likely the sending unit has gone bad.Removal of the tank is how to change the sending unit in the tank,It may only be available with the fuel pump assembely.To check it,disconnect the fuel pump at the fuel tank.With the key on,the gauge should peg out past full.

Fuel gauge reads E when first started, jumps to F after awhile

It is more likely to be the fuel guage sender which is faulty.
