1998 Chevrolet Malibu 54k miles - replaced fuel pump assembly & now some dash warning lights and clock stay on. Any ideas?


Replacing a fuel pump has nothing to do with instrument cluster lights or the clock staying on. Unless you shorted wires , did you disconnect the negative battery cable before hand ?
The body control module (BCM) performs the following functions:
• A/C compressor request
• A/C cooling fan
• Exterior and interior lighting control
- Daytime running lights (DRL)
- Automatic lighting control
- Fog lamps
- Interior lighting
• Battery rundown
• Chime
• Gauge control
• Instrument cluster indicator control
• Fuel gauge control
• Temperature gauge control
• Theft deterrent
Interpreting all of the driver warnings sent by the control modules on the class 2 serial data line
Sending the information to the instrument cluster in the form of a SPI serial data bus message
The following list of messages are sent by the BCM to the instrument cluster:
• Fuel gauge position
• Temperature gauge position
• Oil pressure
• Low engine coolant
• Check oil
• Volts
• ABS
• High beam
• Low fuel
• High temperature
• Washer fluid level low
• CRUISE
• BRAKE
• SERVICE VEHICLE SOON
• Door ajar
• Seat belt
• THEFT SYSTEM
• PRNDL
Check the fuel level sensor wires , the fuel level sensor is a input to the BCM .

Fuel gauge stays on full mark when empty, but the low fuel indicator light comes on. working the fuel sending unit by hand, I raise up the float and the low fuel light goe off


Fuel gauge could be bad .Depending on make , model and year vehicle ! The instrument cluster would need to be pull from the vehicle and sent out to be fixed or buy a new one .

Why would the fuel filter light be staying on


I am pretty sure that there is no fuel filter light, there is a fuel low level indicator that turns on when the fuel is low, if the fuel is not low then the sender unit is broke.

This indicator is red or dark orange and look like a gasoline pump.

Fuel gauge does not move, stays on E, after car starts. Low fuel light is not coming on.


Hello graytape, was the fuel gauge and low fuel light working and then one day just stopped working?, if so, you have probably blown a fuse and you should be able to locate what fuse and where it's located in the owner's manual.
If you recently got the vehicle and then you found out that the gas gauge and low fuel light doesn't work then that is something completely different.
without knowing the year of the vehicle I can only give you an educated guess.
Many vehicles have a float in the gas tank and this float is directly linked to what you see on the gas gauge. However, after a number of years the floats get saturated from the fuel and become heavy, heavy enough to where they don't float anymore. That is one of the most common causes of the fuel gauge not working.
The sensor that activates the low fuel warning light may be independent of the fuel gauge and the fuel in the tank isn't low enough to turn it on. Your tank has to be very low to activate the low fuel warning light.
Good luck!

Fuel guage stays on empty and low fuel light stays on,no other problems


You might have a leak in the float in the fuel tank sender unit (the float should sit on top of the fuel and feedback info to the gauge - the fuel gauge staying on empty might mean that the float is either leaking or it is stuck).

Low fuel light stays on. gas gauge is inaccurate


It could be a couple things, fuel pump or your fuel float inside the tank is going. Best best depending on what you want to spend. Call a junkyard for a replacement or a scrap yard/ salvage parts.
You may want to also put a large carboard box under the car (laying flat) to see if the gas tank is leaking too.
