Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Fuel gage on 2005 altima is way beyond full. Does

Fuel gage on 2005 altima is way beyond full. Does not matter if car is on or off. This happened after I jump started the car several times yesterday because the battery had gone bad. I was hoping that a new battery would fix the gage (you never know since there is no voltage gage and thoguht it my be the fuel gauge might be a bad battery indicator) but it did not. Checked and there is no single fuse for the gage, so ruled out a blown fuse. Any other ideas? Maybe the one of the jump starts fried the gage?

    Thank you for the response. Turns out, holding out hope worked:) A couple hours after my post, the gage returned to normal operation. Thanks again!

It is either the sending unit in the gas tank or the dashboard gauge, either job poses its own challenges take your pick. If it is the gauge if you were lucky in a couple of weeks it will become unstuck in to pegged out position but that is only if it is a mechanical issue with the needle itself wedged in place.

The fuel gage problem is either from a bad ground to the gage or the sending unit in the tank is bad. They will normally read a half tank or less when the car is full if the sending unit goes bad. I would put a scanner on the computer and check for any codes set.

Fuel gage always reads as full in 89 chevy camero rs. at first it would read semi accurately until it hit 1/4 tank then over a period of approx. 4 weeks it read accurately a smaller portion of the time....


It's very possible that the fuel sending unit inside the tank has failed. It has the classic symptoms of working erratically for a while then reading full or beyond full as the sender finally stops working. Hope this helps and good luck!
