Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Fuel Gauge bounces from F to E and stops nowhere in between.

Does anyone know why the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire fuel gauge does not work properly? Mine goes from F To E without warning and it does not register anywhere in between. Thanks for your help.

Fuel gauge not working properly. change fuel pump and the problem happened


Chances are the gauge sending unit was either damaged or not plugged in after the install of the pump. It's mounted on the pump assembly and likely has its own electrical connector that needs to be plugged in.

Hello mcammdf.
To properly test the fuel gauge circuit you will need to check the purple wire at the connector to the fuel tank.
Run a wire from the purple wire at the connector to body ground. If the gauge moves when you ground it the circuit to that point is good.
These cars are noted for fuel gauge problems and most probably the issue will be the sending unit in the fuel tank.

The gauge problem sounds like the common issue on the 03-05 Sunfire instrument clusters where the stepper motors on the cluster's circuit board fail over time. It can be fixed, check out this page for more on how to get it repaired - Sunfire instrument cluster fix

2005 pontiac sunfire


I have the same problem.. i installed a toggle switch for the fuse so at least I can reset it while driving.. its still a pain so Im thinking my next step will be to drill a hole through the plastic and put in a small metal post to stop the tach from going past 7

has anyone taken theirs into a shop?
