I HAVE A 1999 PONTIAC GRAM AM WHEN I START THE THE CAR THE FUEL HAQND GOES TO FULL THEN DROPS TO EMPTY AN STAYS THERE AN I NO FUEL IS IN IT


It has to be the sender unit in the tank, or the gauge in the dash, or the wiring between them. In most cases, it is the sending unit-they are quite fragile often. Usually best to replace them (not very expensive-just difficult to get to.) The sending unit will be located with the fuel pump inside the tank. They are removed as one single unit.
There is a way to test if the dash gauge itself is working properly. You have to find the wire going into the fuel tank that is from the gauge, then with key on, ground that wire to the frame-you can use a jumper wire into the fuel tank electrical connector. When the wire is grounded, the gauge will definitely move to one place (either half full, or full-but it moves and stays there). If you see that, you know the sending unit in the gas tank is bad. Do not ground that wire for more than a couple of seconds, it is lo0w voltage, but it may cause a shorting problem.

2000 Dakota quad cab fuel gauge wont work, jumps to full when started, fuel pump has been replaced. What next?


Check for a frayed wire touching metal and grounding out. The gauge works on resistance and it registering full indicates a short to ground. Either that or your gauge itself is bad.

Gas hand reads full all the time


Fuel gauge may be the problem, but may also be a short in wires going to fuel gauge
Battery power goes to gauge in dash then to resistor in tank to ground. If the wire going to tank is shorted to frame it will always read full. Test this by disconnecting the wire going to the tank. If it goes to empty then you know the reason, either resistor in tank is bad or wire shorted.

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 1996 explorer and fuel filter and put 5 gals of gas back in the tank now the fuel guage is registering full and will not work


Eewww. That's not good. And you're not going to like what I say. I think you bent the fuel gauge sender unit, or misaligned something when you put it back in tank. Try unplugging the connector and plugging it back in. See if that helps the gauge to register right. Here's a quick check to see if your dash gauge is working right: Unplug connector again at tank and use a jumper wire to ground the dash gauge sender wire. With key turned to on and the fuel gauge wire grounded, the gauge should jump up to half or full. If it does, there's a problem with your sender unit in the tank.

Gas gauge wont go past half it stops at half and will go to empty but never past half


There is a fuel gauge sensor in your fuel tank. If the sensor is out of place, it will not read the amount of gas in your tank correctly if it is out of place. This is a fixable job, but I recommend a ceritfied mechanic. Hope this helps! Please give 4 thumbs up!

Fuel gauge alwaya read full


The wire between the dash and the fuel tank is connected to ground somewhere. there is a control that fails too but if the control failed the temperture gauge also won't work. The wire can get in troble inside the tank too as if someone tried to steal the gas with a hose. if you can disconnect the connector ( wireing ) at the fuel tank and turn the key on and the gauge goes to empty you know the troble is inside the tank and the pump sender unit will need to be removed from the tank to correct the problem or even the gauge unit replaced.70198425.jpg

My gas gauge is really empty when it gets to half a tank is there a fuse I need to check I have an 02 s-10 blazer replaced fuel pump 2 years ago


Not a fuse if it reads any thing at all. Find the two wire harness that feeds your fuel pump and sending unit. It is near your fuel tank. It has a ground that goes to the frame near it. Unplug the connector and see what you gauge does. (key on) If you can determine the wire that becomes hot when the key is first turned on (feeds the fuel pump) put a ground to the other one to see if you get a change at your gauge.

Suspected Fuel Pump Failure


first, tap on the gas tank to see if it sounds empty, second, when you turn your key on you should hear the fuel pump turn on (faint whirring sound from gas tank) for a couple seconds.
