Mercedes C240 estate strange fuel guage readings

Hi,
My mercedes fuel guage has gone weird, instead of the needle pointing to the right it has swung around and now points to the left and bashes against the temperatur guage needle when you turn the ignition on.

It sounds like it might have lost its ground, or maybe the electrical connection to the sending unit on tank, chk. all that first, if no change on guage it might be a problem with the flote in the tank.

Fuel gauge stays on full


You may have a unique problem!!! Normally I would say it is the sending unit- in the fuel tank!!!! But Buick LeSabre had a weird thing happen from time to time. Look closely at your fuel guage and focus on the PIN that acts as a stop for the fuel guage to not go beyond the Full mark. Make sure the pin is on the correct side of the pin!!! Sometimes the needle will somehow jump the pin on "E" or "F", and literally hold the needle in place.

May sound strange but sometimes, a fuel additive\booster can help this problem, if it is caused by corrosion of the in tank sensor and it is an intermittant problem.

Fuel gauge erratic


you will need to have the cluster (guages) repaired or replaced. (for the vibration). You will need to do this first.

They also have problems with the fuel level sensor in the tank, the contacts corrode and will give false readings. BUT this will not cause the guage to vibrate as you have described.

940 1991 volvo estate


Your problem is fuel gauge is hanging up on the fuel pump. The slide bar/fuel sender is located inside the fuel tank alongside the fuel pump. Today I removed my fuel tank and replaced the pick up strainer on my fuel pump and previously my fuel gauge didn't work, but all I needed to do was slightly bend the slide mechanism and my fuel reading read correctly on my gauge. Previous to that I showed no reading on the dash meter.
