Question about 2004 Chevrolet SSR

1 Answer

I have a 04 SSR and the gas Gage now goes way past the full mark when full and moves when emptying all the way back to full mark when empty. Dic works fine telling me how far I have to go with gas left in tank. So sender from tank must be fine. With key off Gage still reads just past full. Any way to reset Gage stepper motor to Empty again?

Yes it is all one unit, and yes that is what the problem is. don't use aftermarket parts, use OEM, (Delco Remy) they are much better quality.

SOURCE: Gas guage moves back and forth from emty to full with gas in it

it sounds like the level sensor on the sender (fuel pick up pipe in the fuel tank) is getting stuck. the level sensor is a float that is attached to the sender, and you will need to remove the fuel tank to get to it.

hope this helps.

2008 jaguar s series gas gage quit working


probably not all that difficult to fix it you have patience. The needle going way past full is an indication of a short before the sender unit or in the sender unit. Pull the power wire from the sender unit and see what the gauge does. IT should stay on the empty mark. IT may be just a fuel sender unit .

2001 park avenue,after changing battery, the gas indicator went past full and is behind the peg on the empty side


What causes the gas gage to work is the sending unit works in resistance. As the resistance goes up, the float goes to empty, as resistance goes down, it goes to full. Resistance in this case equals ground. So it sounds like the ground has been lost. check for a bad wire and under the frame back to the tank is a good place to start since that is where a lot of corrosion is posible.

My gas gauge was working fine...went to fill it up and it goes to completely empty to 1/4 tank to full then back to empty. What do I do?


you are going to need to get the gas gage sending unit replaced to fix this problem, the sending unit is located inside the fuel tank.

My gas gage is either on full or once in a while 2002 buick regal


there is a float in your gas tank kinda like the float in your toilet. Sometimes they stick and if the bell goes off then back.. it prob. from the gas splashing in the tank. I wouldnt' be concerned too much.
