2002 Grand Prix Sending Unit

I have a 2002 Grand Prix and the fuel guage doesn't work. It shows full after filling up then goes up and down in the mean time. Do I have to change the fuel tank or can I access the sending unit elsewhere and what does it look like?

The fuel sending unit is located on the top of the fuel tank, On the grand prix you will have to drop the tank down (remove the tank straps) and the remove the ring that holds the unit in and then you can just pull the unit right out of the tank. You then place the new unit in and the installation is the reverse of removal

When my fuel tank is full the guage registers empty


Could be a problem with the gauge in the instrument cluster, or the wiring that goes back to the tank, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit has a float much like your toilet which could stick or fail to move.

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 gauge non Digital car does check system then while sitting it goes from full tank to empty and no reading's in between.


This problem is caused by a defective fuel gauge level sending unit, the sending unit is located inside the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly (known as the fuel pump module) and not sold separate from the fuel pump. To replace the fuel pump module you must remove the fuel tank from the car.

Grand prix gas gauge not working


should be a grey wire going to the top of fuel tank connects to fuel guage / when the guage in the tank reads grounded it shows full , no ground it shows empty. if you ground that grey wire and the guage jumps to full then faulty guage if nothing maybe bad ground on the tank itself. the guages are a reostat like a tyco race car gun the more it moves the more it grounds .. good luck

The temperature gauge on my 2002 grand prix dose


the temperature sending unit on a 97 grand prix 3800 gt(which is also the coolant temperature sensor) is not accurate. the sending unit part of this sensor only sends info to the guage on the dash. the coolant sensor part sends info to the computer of the car. it is located under thermostat and somewhat difficult to get at. i had put a brand new one in and my temperature on my dash is all over the place---even with good thermostat and properly bled system. when i hook up a scanner to my computer, the coolant sensor is sending the computer(ecu??) what seems to be the right temp. anywhere from 194 degrees to 217 when hot. the guage however on dash go from 160 to 260 in less than 2 minutes.
