Fuel gauge problem, Volvo 960, 1995

I have a 1995 Volvo 960 and suddenly the fuel gauge reads empty with the warning light on, even when the tank is full. I''ve taken it to 2 non-volvo mechanics and they can't seem to figure out whether it's the sender or the receiver and claim to need a $200 part from Volvo for the diagnostics. Is there a simpler way of solving this other than to take it to a Volvo dealer, which there are none of in St George Utah

It is more than likely the sender if you pull out pump you can manually move sender or you can test gauge by grounding sender the gauge should go to full if none of this happens you need a gauge

Gas level indicator says no gas while tank is full in my volvo 960? any idea?


The fuel sender inside the tank, or the wiring tank to gauge, or the gauge. Have you checked the fuses? With a full tank you should be getting 12 volts on the gauge circuit, check at the tank and then in small intervals along the wire towards the gauge, You could try jumping 12 volts to the gauge power wire to see if the gauge works.

GAS GAUGE SHOWS EMPTY AND THE WARNING LIGHT IS ON


I suspect either the sensor was not reconnected (or may have been damaged) when you put eveything back together or the float has sunk. Either way, you will have to do the job over to fix it.
