Hello, has anyone had a fuel guage problem where the guage just goes from empty to full whilst driving along, its on a 2005 308 cdi sprinter, any solutions would be appreciated thanks brett


the fuel gauge works on an electric pulse. if it is unplugged it will go to empty if it is plugged i it will go up as fare as the tank is full. if it goes higher then the known fuel lvl. you have a bad gauge if it goes up and down when you know it is full you have a bad connection

Fuel guage always shows empty


It sounds as if the fuel tank sending unit is faulty. This is a small float connected to a variable resistor on the fuel pump/sending unit assembly. Unfortunately this assembly is fairly expensive (over $300) and the fuel tank may need to be removed to replace it.

Fuel guage


the guage gets a earth signal from the sender ,, depending on the amount the guage rises accordingly ,, if the wire is touching earth any where the guage will go up to full,,,, disconnect the fuel sender and see does the guage drop,, it should if there is no short in the wiring ,,,,if it does drop you then have to recheck the sender ,,, if the guage stays full you have to check wiring for a short ,,,,, if you are able you could strip out the guage and disconnect the plug at the rear of it to make sure that the guage itself is not faulty,,,,

Fuel guage doesnt work. ive tracked down all i can. Anyone got any suggestions. 1983 grand marquis 302 fuel inj


Open circuit - gauge will read full.Grounded circuit - the gauge will read empty. If it reads empty all the time - then the wire that goes to the sender is broken and/or grounded somewhere along its length to the fuel tank. run a jumper wire from bottom of the fuse box in the spot, all the way to top of sending unit on tank. disconnect old wire at both ends, and then turn on the key and observe guage. if not this, check guage itself for sticking.

Fuel guage on87 olds cutlass goes past full and will not move down.


Check the connection at the tank to see if it is connected.Then take a test light and ground the test light to a good ground.With the key on,probe the wire going into the tank,there is more than one so the one you probe will have a dim light,and when this happens,the gauge will fall to empty.This will happen if the sending unit is bad in the tank,
