Petrol gauge stuck on empty even if petrol full on my ford focus st 2014 model

You need to check if your wiring from the tank unit is connected. If it is check for the no.of wires on the unit and using a test light grounded, probe with the ignition turned on and see if there is any response. One shd be a ground wire and the other shd be for low fuel light and lastly the one for the fuel level. You can connect a wire directly and ground making the light to come on and the gauge to rise to maximum with the other.
Shd you not get a reaction then you need to check continuity from the tank to dash to establish if there is no open circuit. Use a multi metre...
if continuity is there then remove the cluster and check if it is not burnt out on some tracks. Replace or send for repairs

I need to reset the fuil gage on my 1999 chevy blazer. I replaced the fuilpump becuse it always reads empty.. and it is still doing the same thing.

Test the dash gauge by grounding the sender wire at the tank to see if dash gauge rises. If not, the gauge could be bad.

Low on fuel warning light not coming on

My experience is with a 98 and a 99 cavalier but I don't think the changes from 97-98 included the cluster, so here's my experience. There is no designated warning light for the fuel gauge. When the gauge gets to almost empty(just a millimeter or so above empty) the red "check gauges" light will illuminate. I don't know whether you have had the tank this empty or not, but periodic checking of the cluster should make you notice if the level is this low. Hope this helps, it's all I can say with the info posted.

Petrol guage sticking. when refualing guage sits just above empty and warning light stays on.

The float inside the gas tank is probably "soaked" and doesn't float properly anymore. It will have to be replaced to get the gauge to work properly.

My c 240 v6 petrol 2001 displays a low priority warning light on the dash,advising that the oil level cannot be checked i have been advised that the sender unit needs replacing , does the sump need...

Sender can only be replaced. If you actually have a problem relating to oil you will see the temperature gauge rise well into the danger zone. As long as operating temp is normal you can relax when driving and get sender changed at your leisure.

Petrol gauge stuck on empty and light constantly

Sounds like a broken gas tank sensor in the gas tank. The sending unit has probably gone out.

Do you mean that the gauge registers as empty, even after the tank is filled? Probably the sending unit needs to be replaced (it's in the tank, likely partially attached to the fuel pump).
