Hi,I never herd of reseting a fuel gauge before,I thought they where of a float sender unit in the tank and that showed the amount of fuel on the gauge aldepending how much fuel you have in the tank,if Im right then the sender unit could be falty if you feel that its giving you the wrong reading.
hope this was some help.

SOURCE: can't find reset switch for fuel pump on mazda mpv

It is typically located in the rear of the vehicle in one of the side compartments. It has a red button on it. I would also check the fuel pump fuse, and relay.

SOURCE: 88 thunderbird turbo coupe fuel pump

have you checked all fuses under the hood? have you checked the fuel pump relay? you may be able to swap the fuel pump relay with amother relay in the fuse box.are you getting power into and out of the reset switch? from there it goes to the fuel pump. if power is getting to the fuel pump and it has a good ground, the the pump is bad.

Check your parts sites. It is true that some fuel pumps are unitized with the fuel gauge. But there are also some with replaceable pumps which means the gauges are also separate.

There are also differences in the connectors with some having flat pins, broader flat pins, and round pins in the connection.

But dropping the tank is a must. Also be aware that there can be a plastic screen on the pump and it may fall apart and jam the float.

Gas gauge reads full when underway. However, when


Most likely it a bad fuel level sensor on you fuel pump. You will have to replace the fuel pump as that is the only way to replace the sensor for you fuel gauge. The sensor is built into the fuel pump. The contacts on the sensor become corroded over time and cause the sensor to malfunction causing your fuel gauge to read full all the time. I have a 2001 Montana extended version that had the same problem. In order to know when I needed to fill the tank, I would completely fill it each time I put fuel in and reset my trip odometer. I would go 400 miles on the tank before I would refuel until we were able to replace the fuel pump.

Fuel gauge not give proper reading.. register full


Sorry to say,but the fuel sending unit is the problem,the fuel tank will have to be lowered out of the vehicle to replace the unit.If the fuel sending unit is not available by itself you will have to replace the whole fuel pump assembley.

Water in gas tank and fuel lines on a Chevy 1998 S-10......wont throttle up at all, will run at idle.....when throttle up it chikes itself out like it flooded...but will idle as low as 400rpm..have changed...


THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RESET SWITCH ON THE FUEL PUMP. IF YOU HAVE WATER IN THE FUEL SYSTEM THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS REMOVE IT, PHYSICALLY. DROP THE TANK, CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER, REMOVE THE THROTTLE BODY, AND GET RID OF THE WATER. AND DON'T FORGET TO BLOW IT OUT OF THE FUEL LINES.

WATER MOLECULES ARE BIGGER THAN FUEL MOLECULES AND WILL NOT GO THROUGH THE FUEL INJECTOR NOZZLES. YOU MAY EVEN HAVE TO REPLACE THE FUEL INJECTORS IF THE WATER DID DAMAGE THEM.
