Question about 2005 Honda CR-V
My 2005 Honda CRV is having an issue with the dashboard guage needles. They suddenly jump around (gas guage needle goes to full when there is only 1/2 tank of gas, rmp guage needle will go to 4 or 5 even when the car is slowing down) etc.... All four guage needles jump around at the same time. When the car is turned off, one or two of the guages stick in the wrong place, then go back to normal when the vehicle is started after a while. The car seems to be running fine otherwise. This happens approximately once per month. Is this the beginning of a larger issue? Honda Dealer said they have never seen this and could not help.

SOURCE: High fuel consumption
Check the following things: air filter, wheel alignment, and timing belt, all of them if not serviced on time can affect your fuel consumption. I do not think its the heat because I drive my car in Phoenix AZ with temperatures comparable to Dubai and I still get 500+ km/tank.

If you remove the sending unit in the gas tank, move it manually by hand as u saw done earlier, the gauge on the dash should also move. As long as the sending unit in the tank isn't 'stuck' at the half full level, the gauge should register empty to full as it moves. To be honest, I'm not sure if I would bother taking the sending unit out. 1st, u must be very careful not to blow yourself up when working on the gas tank (no sparks, etc), all u really need to do is fill up your car, see how many miles a tank of gas will go (carry a can of gas with u to see how many miles before u run out). If it's 350 miles, just set the trip gauge to zero every time u fill up, and get gas every 300 miles so u don't run out. If the sending unit moves freely, everything (wiring ) is connected properly, then it probably is the fuel gauge. good luck!

SOURCE: Guages malfunctioning
This problem maybe solved a couple ways. The first, (and cheapest) is check all your fuses. BMW's sometimes have multiple fuse boxes. In the dashboard behind the clove compartment, under the driver's side or passenger's side dash( near your knees or sides of your calfs), and in the engine compartment under the hood. Fuses are relatively cheap if you do it yourself and are available at nearly all auto parts stores and many WAL*MART'S or TARGET'S.
If you've checked all the fuses with either a fuse checker (about $5 at an auto parts store) or by pulling out and checking each fuse visually (making sure to be very careful not to touch the contacts or not getting shocked by disconnecting the positive battery cable very carefully), another problem may be in your ECU (the car's computer or brains).
If the fuses are fine, I'd take it to a dealer to have them look at the ECU, it is one of those parts that you can't really diagnose yourself with out the right software and computer connections (very expencive tools, around $500-$3,000 each) but many local mechanic shops and all BMW dealers will have these tools.
First check the fuses. If you have trouble finding the fuse boxes, look in the owner's manuals.
I hope I could help you fix the problem.

SOURCE: Fuel guage stays on full
the problem is the fuel gauge sending unit is an open circuit, this is caused by the sender and it will need to be replaced, use caution when removing the gas tank, also try to have the tank at less than 1/4 full, above all be careful, there is a signifigant fire/explosion hazard when doing this job.
