Question about Cars & Trucks
The visual warning lights for Temp, Oil, Fuel and Volts all came on nearly at the same time on my 2001 Blazer; yet all guages show OK and the fuel tank is full, the oil is at perfect level and the temp is nominal.
Check for a broken or bad ground strap from the engine to the firewall of the engine compartment. This may be causing the problem. Hope this helps

this problem sounds like a bad ground to your gauges first check your fuses with a test light take the end of light ground on battery with a long wire with alligator clip on end so you can reach around to test second thing take probe tip touch pos of battery to make sure tester lights then test all fuses first both sides most fuses have two little holes one on each side on top to put probe on fuses should light up on both sides some fuses wont light on both unless the ignition is turned to acce or for instant a headlight switch has to be on to test fuse if fuses check out okay you will have to get into the gauge instrument cluster possible if these gauges are pushed into a pin type or flat circuit board its possible loose scews and a good bump would make a bad contact in the cluster

yes you have to drop the tank. you will also need a fuel line tool to unhook the fuel lines. before you drop the tank see if tou can reach and wiggle the electrical connection on the top of the tank. these pumps have a pigtail issue. please rate

The level sensor is bad. They are easy to do. You don't have to pull the fuel tank down. There is an acsess hole in the trunk. Look in the rear of the trunk at the rear of the seats. You will notice there is a spot in the middle that the capet comes together, Pull them apart and there is metal plate with some 10mm nuts, pull that off and your fuel pump is there, remove and replace the sensor.
Also there will the a code in the pcm. you will need to clear it to pass emissions

I had a similar issue and started to notice other electrical failures along with the gas gauge. My rear doors would not lock and my rear wiper stopped working. I started pulling fuses and relays to see if this would reset, no go. But then I hit the jackjpot. In the rear electrical panel, below all the fuses and relays is a 2" x 2" black plastic square with a big screw in it.
Remove the screw and pull evenly on the black square. This seems to be a major electrical hub for the car. I reconnected and all 3 of my issues disappeared...I read somewhere that a fix might be to disconnect the battery for a few minutes, which I guess re-sets some relays and circuits, but I guess this did the same thing. Good luck.
