I wish you could back up & start over

Why was the dealer unable to continue on
or resolve it the first time?

I would have gone back to the dealer,
they have some experience already with
your car

Here in the US we do not to my knowledge,
some 50 years, have what you call auto electric
shops, nor do you need one, as the dealer & any
local shop should find the problem

I also hope you did not take advice that did not
come from actual test results & you were there
at the shop to see & understand fact based info

I do not have an answer-- nor a guess

What is done at the best dealers & local shops,
is to look in their data base for a common vehicle
problem as a way to save time

They also have tech lines they pay for to get ideas

No one,not even a dealer can test or find any issue
until they study the problem & learn how a system works

Then you look at scan tool data,wiring diagram & more

Now your into a few hundred in labor & the shop is just learning
your product,that is what is required with current technology

I never suggest a dealer because of the cost of labor factor

But that is the only place I think you should go for that issue

I can not speak for the original problem or the dealers work

But I think it all went south after that & the proper testing
was never done, to even find a problem or you wouldn't
still have one

Frustrating & expensive,when you don't have decades of
automotive experience,the required electrical back ground,
many shops still don't have & a hundred thousand in tools
& equip, plus the data, just to walk out to a vehicle,but that is
what it takes

A car today is like going to a doctor,only their are not as yet,
many out there up to speed

Some cars have a second fuse box under the hood near the battery. See if your car doesn't have one of those.

SOURCE: Fuel gauge shows empty

The electrician could be right, I too am an electrician, and my best guess for this is the wireing, make sure all wires leading to and from are in tip top shape. Any electrician can do this, Kragen does it for free I think, and Auto Zone might do it too. But it could be a ground wire, i had a similar situation but it was with my fuel pump. ground wire was worn and lost continuity.

SOURCE: Replacment of a dash light. Toyota Corolla 1998

There is a plastic garnish surrounding the instrument cluster held in by 2 philips head screws. remove the screws and gently pry the garnish from top first then sides then it should pull out.

Then remove the 3 screws holding the cluster in place (2 bottom 1 top). Once that is done gently flip the cluster bottom up and pull out some to expose the wiring harness. Remove the 3 connectors from the back and then the cluster will pull out.

There are 3 bulbs that control the overall lighting of the cluster. They are spaced about every third across the rear of the cluster. They are the larger Green knobs. Remove the 3 large green knobs and replace the bulbs with the appropriate size. You can call your local parts store to find out the size.

Its a 5 minute job and does not require the entire removal of the dash board.

1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working


It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

I have a Toyota Echo 2004 , the fuel tank indicator on the instrument panel stop working even if the car is completely full the ligth is on , indicating low fuel.


There is a flotation operated sender inside the gas tank, which provides information to the gauge.
Either your sender has died or become corrupted by taking on gas, or the gauge has died. Probably easier cheaper and faster to have the gauge checked out at a dealer than to pull the tank out. Might be a common problem on that model or year. Ask a dealer service department how much to figure it out.

fuel gauge voltage is controlled by the dash board, there is a board on the back of the dash that connects the rev counter the voltage is controlled by this board. you would need to change this board. but to do so you would need to open up the dash board display to get to the board or just replace the dash.

Gas gauge in the dash malfunctioning - 1990 Nissan Hardbody truck


It sounds like the float on the sending unit is sinking. Don't know what the float is made of, but over time, it will soak up gas and start to get heavy. This would cause your problem. I don't think it's the gauge, but if you want to test it, disconnect the wires at the tank. The gauge will either go to full or empty. If you ground the sending wire, the gauge should respond the opposite way it was. good luck

Fuel gauge acting up!


There have been problems with the dash guage module that may cause this problem. Could also check the sender in the tank. If you can access the wires for the fuel sender you can check it with an ohm meter. The reading should stay relatively constant as long as fuel is not sloshing in the tank. If it is the sender, then a fuel pump module is in your future. There are aftermarket fuel modules available and many independant shops that could easily do this repair if the dealer is not inclined to help. If the sender checks out, then it could be the guage/module.

Gas gauge issue


you got a problem with your fuel gauge sender that works together with the fuel pump inside in the fuel tank, that sender is a wire that could be burned and is sending wrong voltage to the fuel meter on the dash board,replace it as a unit or if you want to save lot of money buy it separate from the fuel pump.

I had the same issue with my 99 Silverado, The sending unit and fuel pump had to be replaced. (the fuel pump and sending unit are one piece units) Chevrolet dealers are aware of this issue, but its still not listed as a recall. I received a lifetime warranty w/labor when I had mine replaced. I also had an issue with the instrument cluster in dash that had to be sent out for repair unrelated to fuel gauge (speedometer)...also dropping the fuel cell is how mine was done also.

My guess would be the fuel pump purchased was bad...
