How to check to see if the fuel level sensor is getting correct voltage

My husband and i just replaced the oil pressure sensor since the code p0522 came up. Also there was code p0462 that was with it. Now since we fixed the oil sensor, it reads "done" but the fuel pump wont engage. It was running a few days ago, and it has a full tank of gas. What would be causing it not to run anymore?

DTC code 0462: Fuel level sensor A circuit low input
Probable causes:
1. Faulty sensor or solenoid
2. Connector terminal damaged or corroded
3. Wire harness problem. Check for correct voltage, open, short to ground or short to voltage
4. Control unit software needs updating
5. Faulty PCM or ECM
6. Low battery voltage

Any or all of these could be causing your PT Cruiser to not run anymore.

If the check engine light is not on, stay away from sensors for now. First when is the last time you have had a tune up? PLugs , wires, air and fuel filter. Stalling at a stop can be from the air filter, fuel filter (clogging up), It can also be from the catalytic conveter, these also clog up. It can be from vacuum leaks, this usually has a rough idle also. It wouldn't hurt to check for codes, intermittant codes don't always pop the light on. On some vehicles the o2 sensors can cause a rough idle and stall at stops, ut they usually set a code/ light.

There's a computer controlled circuit that will kill fuel pressure on some cars right at the last inlet valve at the fuel rail.A bad key or ignition can cause this. don-ohio

SOURCE: 94 Chrysler Lebaron Convertible will not idle but will start and run at high idle.

Try your Idle Air Control Motor. It is located on the throttle body under the throttle position sensor

I have a 93 3.0 that is doing something similar but has not gotten to the state yours is in. If you find anything out let me know. Mine is going to the shop.

SOURCE: 2005 PT Cruiser showing P0456 and P0522. Cranks but wont start.

The sensor that is most likely causeing the problem is the low oil pressure sensor. It is telling the cpu that you have a problem that unless you correct it, the motor will suffer serious damage from insufficient lubrication.Have the oil pressure checked with a manual gauge then replace the sensor unit if faulty.

05 neon, shutdown while driving, has p0522 and p0340. Has no fire. Cam sensor replaced, no obvious signs of damage to any wiring. Help?

Usually dodge--Chrysler--Plymouth, the computer has to see both the cam and crank sensor signals or it won't ground the asd relay. The asd relay supplies voltage to several systems, dark green wire with orange tracer, primary voltage to ignition coil and fuel injectors just to name a couple. There could be other issues, like a problem with wiring circuits, somewhere or voltage.
The p0522 is oil pressure sender, low voltage. The other code does relate to cam sensor. Before I replace a sensor, I try to check wiring circuits.

How can i fix a p0522 code that is read by my engine light? Can i reset it and forget it? Or is it dangerous?

code p 0522 refers to engine oil pressure sensor/switch---low voltage === causes --wiring short to ground ---engine oil pressure sensor/switch---ECM
any reference to oil pressure warnings should be taken seriously as a destroyed engine is a result of inaction
first get it to an accredited service shop that handles your make of vehicle and have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge
if it not a pump/ oil level problem , replace the sensor

I had the error code for the cam shaft sensor, I changed it , started ok for a few times. Now truck won't start and I get the code P0522

The oil pressure sensor or sender may be at fault.

The vehicle computer is called a PCM - Power Control Module. The oil pressure sensor/sender sends a signal to to it. If the PCM detects an out of range signal (i.e incorrect) it can shut off the engine to prevent damage.

Your fault is more likely to be electrical than mechanical (i.e you don't have a faulty or broken oil pump).

Your first course of action should be to check the oil level and condition of the oil, then check the wiring around the oil pressure sensor.

An oil pressure sensor is easily replaced. You can do that job yourself, if needed

Codes po171 and po522 on my dash board

P0171 Fuel system lean bank 1, P0522 Engine oil pressure/switch circuit low voltage. Take care of the P0522 get the oil pressure check out first. As for P0171 that can be from a vacuum hose leak from false air.Worn out sparkplugs. To a contaminated MAF(mass air flow sensor).Lean bank is a easy fix but low oil pressure get that look at.

My jeep liberty 2004 3.7 . Is showing these code`s... po300 , p0522 , po335...and I find she`s hard to start....why...

there appears to be a problem with your crank position sensor and your oil pressure switch.
  • P0522 Engine Oil Pressure Sensor/Switch Circuit Low Voltage
  • The crank position sensor or its connection is probably at fault. The engine needs the signal that the crank postion sensor provides to inject fuel and supply spark at the correct time.

    Make sure battery has a full charge. Have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse.

    Engine lite on two codes p0440 p0522 what are

    p0440-Evaporator Emissions Control Malfunction. P0522- Engine Oil pressure low. Replace the Gas cap and double check your engine oil level to make sure your not low. Reset the computer and see if the codes return. If your oil level is good when you check it you may have a problem with your oil pump.

    Engine light on faults p 456 p522

    P0456 is Evap Emission control small leak detected.
    P0522 Engine oil pressure sensor low voltage.
    The first code could be related to a loose, defective, or missing gas cap.
    The second code, could be a defective sensor but you will need to confirm. Check oil level and condition first then onto the sensor and related wiring.
