There is ether a broken wire from gas tank to dash or the sending unit in tank is broken. being that it is such an old car the sending unit is probably rotten.

SOURCE: 96 Dodge Ram Gas Gauge always on empty

The fuel pump and the sensor is altogether as one assembly. So if you buy the pump you would also be buying the sensor. Just for your information the pump is located in the gas tank under the bed, so you have two ways to change it. One is take the bed off (which is a lot easier if you have a full gas tank). But if its empty than use a jack to lower the tank down from underneath the truck. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan fuel gauge does not

the level sending unit in the tank is attached to the fuel pump module it is a varible resistor it moves as fuel level changes this sending unit can be replaced but if your going to the trouble of replacing it you just as well replace the fuel pump it comes together.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on and gas gauge goes from it current position to empty going down the road

It sounds like you have a bad wire or connection. Did you have the fuel pump changed? The mech may have been a little sloppy. I'd bet the problem is near the top of the gas tank where the pump is.

Dash gas gauge stops showing proper gas level once it hits half a tank. Then gauge will fluctuate between empty (light will come on), full and anywhere in between but seems fine from full tank to half


If the trouble with the gauge started after you worked on it then you likely damaged or created a restriction to the movement of the sending unit. You will have to remove the tank and double-check your work.

1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working


It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy and my gas gauge has been flowing up and down to empty and full recently it has stayed on empty. How do I fix it?


Ensure that all of the wire connections are clean, secure and corrosion-free.

  • 2 Check your fuel gauge fuse if the gauge's indicator stays on empty when your turn on the ignition. If the fuse is good, join the sending unit connector to ground. Replace the sending unit if the gauge indictor moves to the full line.
  • 3 Ground the terminal located on the back of the fuel gauge with a jumper wire if the indicator doesn't move. If it does move, consider replacing the wire between the fuel gauge and the sending unit. A poor ground is frequently responsible for fuel gauge problems.
  • 4 Release the wire that connects to the fuel tank's sending unit. Confirm that there's no worn insulation that would permit wire contact to the body or frame. A fuel gauge reading of full generally indicates a problem with the tank unit, not the wiring.

    Gas guage only reads empty always, ive took down the gas tank and everything is ok there, i performed risisastance test and the unit went from 16 ohms to 150 ohms whitch i took that it is working, so with...


    If you ground the wire from the gauge to the sender with the ignition on the gauge should go past full. If it doesn't you'll have to trace that circuit all the way back to the gauge. If that circuit is OK you may have a bad gauge or no power to it. If the gauge does go past full when you ground the fuel gauge wire your sending unit may not be grounded. I'm assuming there is a float on the sending unit.
