Why does the fuel gauge stay on full all the time?


Fuel sender unit could be faulty and showing a full tank all the time. Basically the gauge is a volt meter and the float arm adjusts the voltage going to the fuel gauge when it moves up and down. If it's stuck for some reason it'll show full when it's at the top.

A local garage or auto centre can fix this easily or if you're good with spanners, it's usually located under the rear passenger seat where you can find the access to the top of the tank.

Just replaced fuel pump/sending unit in a 2004 Bravada for a no start condition....now the gas gage doesn't work? Dropped the tank again and put OLD sending unit in....key turned on tank reads full (full...


Your replacement fuel pump assembly float got stuck somehow rendering it useless. also make sure the electrical harness was connected properly on the replacement. I take it for granted that the replacement was new? Perform a bend test on your replacement fuel pump assembly with an ohm meter. Move the float and see if the ohm meter resistance changes.

If gauge is pegged full then while driving goes empty then full then 1/2 it is the circuit board inside the fuel tank that has gone bad. to get the tank to register correctly then you must remove tank remove fuel pump module the float arm can be adjusted to read correct level

2003 Honda Civic Gas Guage says 3/4 full on full tank of gas


The fuel meter inside the tank has malfunctioned. One option is to replace the fuel pump. Second option is to bring down the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump and check see if the metering rod was bent. Now if you are not having problems with the fuel pump. I would deal with the gauge being low and continue running the car until the time comes to replace the fuel pump.

My fuel meter doesnt work how do i fix it?


This is a common issue caused by the sensor connections to be corroded off (in the fuel tank). If you can do the repair yourself it only costs about $30.00 and an hour of your time. But you have to be comfortable getting into the fuel tank to get to the fuel pump.

If you take it in for repair it will probably cost about $600.0 to have a new fuel pump put in.

98 oldmobile cutlass fuel gage will go to full when filled but as soon as it uses 1/4 of a tank it (the gage) drops and i dont know how much gas is in there


there is a fault with the sending unit in the fuel tank, if the gauge can move to full when you fill the tank it is good.
only way i know how to test the sending unit is to take it out of the fuel tank and hook a meter to the float wires, move the float manually and the meter will go to zero if the unit is bad

Faulty fuel guage 1997 blazer reads past full


This could be one of two problems:one could be that the magnetized gauge flipped all the way around, you will need to take a paper clip or a thin piece of wire and stick it through the hole for the trip meter reset button(its tricky) and flip the gauge needle back around to fix it. The second reason could be that the fuel tank sending unit could be faulty and needs to be replaced. this is located inside the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly.

I have Nissan Altima with incorrect guage reading


The Correct Rerpair for this to to REPLACE the FUEL LEVEL Sending UNIT. It is Located INSIDE the Fuel Tank, After Reserching this through Numerous Resources I Have Fould that it is Incorperated into the FUEL PUMP. So You can Use your Current Calibration Method or Replace Fuel PUMP. Looking at the Vehicle AGE and IF IT HAS OVER 100K Miles on it , It is Advisable for you to Replace the INTIRE UNIT. It is OBVIOUSLY Not Manditory as the Vehicle is RUNNING, But If you Wish to Have Accurate FUEL LEVEL Reading Replacment is the ONLY OPTION.
