Why does my fuel gauge always register full in my


Open wire or the sender is open, ground the sender wire as close to the pump as possible. If the gauge goes to empty then your sender is at fault. If it remains at full then the wire from the sender to the guage is open.

Fuel gauge does not register and I have replaced


Did you check to make sur you have voltage at the sensor? Before you changed out the sensor did you run a wire from one post to the other post on the connector?
doing this will make your gas gauge go to full,unless the gauge is defective

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.

1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement


A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.
