Gas guage light coming on when you know you have enough gas indicates the fuel tank sensor is bad. If engine light is on, you have a problem, but without diagnostics, you won't know what is wrong, so stop by an Autozone, they will hook up diagnostics to determine what code and what it points to as problem.

The service engine soon light came on and at the same time the gas gauge stopped working. Why?


SEL is probably on because you don't have gas cap on correctly, or gasket on cap is torn. Gauge not working is separate issue I expect. Could be fuse, bad gauge, bad sending unit inside tank, or broken wire.

My engine light keeps coming on and my gas gauge


The check engine light means you should have the engine computer checked for trouble codes. The gauge problem could be the sending unit in the tank.

Hello, the gas gage problem is caused by a defective gas gage sending unit, the sending unit is only sold as the entire Assembly which is called the fuel pump module, that said the gas gage problem is not related to the check/service engine light issue, that is an indication of a problem in the electronic engine control system or emission control system, when this light is on a fault code is put into the memory of the computer called the PCM, to retrieve this code requires a test be run called the OBD2 fault code test, this is done through the diagnostic connector that is in front of the steering wheel and under the dash, a code reader is needed, you can also get the code read for free by most discount auto parts stores like Kragen or Autozone.

There is a FLOAT in the gas tank that bobs up & down in the gas in which the gauge gets a signal from to let u know your fuel level. they can go bad & send erratic readings to the gauge. (like a toilet bowl float) That is the most common cause of your problem. Good Luck

2004 Ford Explorer XLT.....The radio and gas gauge quit


The check engine light will represent fault codes that the computer is sensing. Have a mechanic, or go to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. This will at least give you an idea about some of your problems.

I have a 1999 Jaguar XJ8, there is a Check Engine


the gas gauge is not related, that would be a defective gas gauge sending unit in the gas tank, the check engine light indicates that one of around 200 poss faults has occured in the electronic engine controls, you will need to have the OBD 2 engine control system tested for the fualt code that is stored when the light is turned on.

Gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on


This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

Temp gauge and gas gauge not working


I had the same problem with my 2001 Pontiac Montana and the intake manifold gasket. This is a major problem with these 3.4L engines, if you are in the states I'm pretty sure there is a class action law suite against GM for this. I had my manifold gasket replaced and it was about $1000 CAD. You need to get your vehicle looked at right away as this could cause major engine damage, coolant will leak into the engine and soon enough you will be replacing that too. Good Luck
