Sounds like you probably need a fuel level sender. it's located in the trunk on the right hand side attached to the fuel pump. I got one on ebay for about 20.00, but you might as well replace the fuel pump while you're at it, as it can go bad with time.

Gas gauge reads half full when less gas in tank. Also speedometer heads 80 ot sometimes higher when driving slower.

sounds like you have a bad ground in your dash where your gauges are located should come out as cluster check for loose wire!

Why does car shuts off when fuel is low?

If you are still showing fuel on the fuel gauge it could be that the gauge is either wrong and not reading right or could be that one of the hoses in the tank has either a hole in it or is disconnected. If your sender is not reading right it could tell you have fuel left when in fact you don't have fuel.

Gas gauge do not work

You will need to change the fuel pump to fix your gauge, it has a sender on the side of the fuel pump. A new fuel pump at auto Zone is $260.00.

2001 Buick lesabre gas guage not working, heated seats not workin

I have a 2001 and just replaced the fuel pump assembly in the tank because the fuel gauge didn't work or worked irratic. After talking to the partsman it sounded like this was common. The contact for the sensor wears away and looses contact. You will see that the new fuel pump module has different type of metal wiper contact. As for the heated seats, I have an issue with driver side also and haven't had a chance to look into it yet.
