The most common cause of an inoperative gas gauge is the gauge sending unit insde the fuel tank is defective, to replace this u must remove the gas tank and replace the sender.

Broken gas gauge

It can be done, but it's hard. It can be either the guage on the dashboard or the sensor that's in the gas tank. Because gas is flammable, I'd let a professional do it for you. You don't want to blow yourself up!

Fuel gage not working on a 1998 vw jetta

i believe he means how can he fix the fuel gauge not working problem not the running out of gas. since we already know why that happened (didnt know he was out of gas due to broken fuel gauge) theres only a few things it could be. the gauges power source or ground could be corroded or broken, the guage itself is broken or the sending unit is worn out or the wiring is faulty or broken to it.

I need to know how to reset a gas gauge on 1997 pontiac grand am se

If gas guage is pegged either full or empty, it is most likely a broken wire to sending unit on the top of the tank. If guage reads wrong, like too much or too little is either bad sending unit in tank or bad guage in dash.

Vehicle runs until gas guage is at half full, then dies, gas added will cause vehicle to run again

Remove the fuel tank an check the line connections at the pump, good time to check the fuel guage also

Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas

The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.

2004 Dodge Stratus gas guage starts to go empty

You likely need a new fuel sending unit (it's in the trunk, and is what drives the gauge).
