Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage
Replaced the entire cluster, yet still does not work. Any ideas? Also, there seems to not be any manuals for the 2001 Mirage ES by Chilton or Haynes?
You could start by replacing the fuel sending unit in the tank this is the first place to start and will fix you problem.

Check for loose connection first. Fuel senders going out all the way like that is very rare. You would get something like it would show empty when halfway full then go back up when it is almost empty and vice versa. Also make sure the new gauge is compatible since instrument clusters are electronically controlled now a days. One ways you can test a sending unit without getting into the fuel tank is to locate which wire it is going into the instrument cluster and measuring its resistance with an ohmmeter. The resistance should vary according to how much fuel is in the tank which determined by a float along with resistive winding of resistive wires (nichrome wires).

Check the voltage with someone cranking the engine. The fuel pump relay is incorperated in the FI relay located under right center of dash. It is a metal relay usually bolted to the floor near the ecm. Double check all the fuses inside and out
