I have a full tank of gas but the fuel gauge needle tries to move when you start the car but just will not register what could be the problem. Could the needle just be stuck or is it broken?

It will take about 30 min to fix. Well that's how long it took me to reapair my 2006 SL. First remove the 3 screws from the shroud around your column they are under your column. Make sure your column is extended and in its lowest position. Second remove the 3 trim pieces on top of the cluster by using a flat blade screwdriver be careful not to damage your dash. Third remove the single screw on top of the cluster and the two that are underneath. Fourth release the tabs that hold the bezel around your cluster. Fifth each lens can then be removed exposing the gauge face and needles. Sixth gently move the needle counter clockwise until it rest on top of the needle stop. Seventh try to remember how it all goes back together haha. No really it is a piece of cake 30 to 40 min versus the 2 hour quote from my local Nissan dealer.

Relieving Fuel System Pressure

  1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal to avoid possible fuel discharge if an accidental attempt is made to start the engine.
  2. Loosen the fuel filler cap to relieve tank vapor pressure.
  3. Connect a suitable fuel gauge to the fuel pressure connection. Wrap a shop towel around the fitting while connecting the gauge to avoid spillage.
  4. Install the bleed hose into an approved container and open the valve to bleed the system pressure. Fuel connections are now safe for servicing.
  5. Drain any fuel remaining in the gauge into an approved container.

This problem is due to a failure of the electronics that drive these gauge displays. What must be done is to have the instrument cluster removed from the car and sent out to a factory approved repair center for repair and upgrades. This is a common issue on the van

2004 Camry XLE fuel gauge problem

Check online in other forums of this particular issue. Others may have had the same issue and have found answers through other sites online. Sound like a bad sending unit "fuel gauge sensor". Unfortunatly, it may be a requirement to remove the fuel tank to gain access to this fuel sensor. If you dont have the means to repair this problem you can always keep track by the mileage that you put on your vehicles tripometer. I know thats a pain but it wont cost you any money until you choose to have the repair done.Estimate your mpg's and the size of your fuel tank by the gallons, and multiply the two. Be sure to keep track and have enough fuel not to run out! Its always better to keep half a tank than an eighth of a tank!
