It sounds like the fuel sending unit, your probably going to have to change the fuel pump. you can also try this first to make sure, take the instrument cluster out and make sure the plugs going into it are seated correctly. the fuel pump is an easy thing these days, remove the rear seat bottom. there will be a door that you can unscrew and the top of the fuel tank will be visible. you just open and swap. you can find a video on youtube to show how to replace it

A few things could end with these results. A faulty Fuel Sending unit, an issue with the gauge directly or a poor connection at the sending unit its self. I would start with the wiring and go from there. Check at the fuel tank where the wiring connects for the fuel pump and sending unit for corrison, a good cleaning and some ***-electric grease will do wonders.

SOURCE: Fuel gage on 2005 altima is way beyond full. Does

It is either the sending unit in the gas tank or the dashboard gauge, either job poses its own challenges take your pick. If it is the gauge if you were lucky in a couple of weeks it will become unstuck in to pegged out position but that is only if it is a mechanical issue with the needle itself wedged in place.

SOURCE: Fuel gauge not give proper reading.. register full

Sorry to say,but the fuel sending unit is the problem,the fuel tank will have to be lowered out of the vehicle to replace the unit.If the fuel sending unit is not available by itself you will have to replace the whole fuel pump assembley.

SOURCE: fuel gage stuck on full

Either there is a short in the fuel sender wiring or the sender in the tank is bad.The actual gauge is rarely bad.Good luck.


Else
The float affixed to your fuel pump in your gas tank is stuck.

It tells the dash you ALWAYS have a full tank.
You have to drop the tank, PB Blast/WD40 the float, get it to drop down.
Finally
Your unit in the tank is bad. Pull it out and move it up and down while someone looks at the gauge. If doesn't work, buy a new one. They are not that expensive.

My 2000 Chevy s15 Rpm and Gas Gauge is not working


I didn't see an s15 in that model year, in my database?
If the speedometer works but the tach doesn't, I think something is wrong with instrument cluster?
GM has had a problem with fuel gage sending units. The sending units are not hard wired to instrument cluster, they send signal to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster, telling the cluster the gage settings.
It may be possible to use different size resistors in place of the fuel level sending unit, to see if fuel gage reacts properly to different resistors, if the gage reacts properly, then I think the problem is the fuel gage sending unit.

When replaced the fuel send unit the fuel gage sits on empty


Try grounding the gauge wire at the tank. If the gauge and wiring are good the gauge will go way past full when you do this.
