    I fill up and the needle for the fuel gauge goes full then to zero.



    I went to a repair shop and they said it was the float in the fuel tank so I simply drive with zero gage now.

2005 Chevy Malibu the gas guage has stopped working. The guage will go from full to empty over and over. The gas cap light comes on and now my engine light is on constantly. How do I get this fixed for...


hey the reason your gas gauge is going from full to empty is that your fuel pump which is in the gas tank has a sensor that relays how much gas the tank has in it, the sensor is gone bad and will have to be replaced. And your engine light problem is probley due to putting gas in the car while it is running, my wife has a 2005 malibu and we have had the same problems with her car hope this was helpful

Just had a new fuel pump installed in 2002 Chevy Malibu. Worked great for about a week and then the fuel gauge started reading "empty" when the car has a full tank of gas. What happened?

The fuel gauge is'nt working.I tryed to ground it


When testing a fuel guage you should disconnect the wires to it,guage should read over full,ground the float wire,turn off key then turn back on should read empty.You have to cycle the key for guage to move.If still inop the wire is broken in the harness between the tank and the dash.Voltage on the float wire is low.When tested with a test light it will barely light the light and pulsate.This test indicates the wiring is good.

Hi there..I have a 99 Chevy Malibu with a Fuel gage stuck on Full tank...any tips how to fix it please ? and second question and it might be very General but i well give it a shot..my instrument panel has...


i suppose you have checked all the fuses and they all checked ok,the fuel gauge may be reading incorrectly due to a faulty sending unit which is mounted in the fuel pump module in the fuel tank,and the instrument lights may not work because the multi function switch may be faulty ,other than that you could have a electrical problem

I have an 04 chevy silverado v6.3, and my dash doesnt work none of the gauges speedometer, fuel, nothing works, but they did yesterday. What could this possibly be?


The stepping motors in the gauge go bad, but uusually they fail gradually, or just one, The dealer charges $300 to fix, do a search on ebay for CHEVY SILVERADO INSTRUMENT CLUSTER for cheaper repair options. gauges are powered by the pcm, no fuses inbetween, so if it runs ok, problem is in cluster

Gas guage no longer works when below half a tank.


You are probably looking at dropping the fuel tank down and removing the float and sending unit ( all in one unit). Once it's taken apart, you may see that you can fix it or you may have to replace it.

Fuel an temperature gauge quit working


There is a voltage regulator for the instruments, usually located on the back of the instrument panel. This may be kaput or it may just have corroded/loose connections. I would check this first.

Carbon monoxide coming through the vents. My fuel guage.


go to a muffler shop and hve the system tested for leaks, don't take chances, the gas guage issue is caused by the fuel tank sending unit being defective.
