I know that the plunger wire inside the tank is yellow, I just replaced the fuel pump today. If that doesnt help, find a wiring diagram, and follow that yellow wire from thats inside the tank to the guages on the schematics.

2000 Dakota quad cab fuel gauge wont work, jumps to full when started, fuel pump has been replaced. What next?

Check for a frayed wire touching metal and grounding out. The gauge works on resistance and it registering full indicates a short to ground. Either that or your gauge itself is bad.

Gauges won't work on a 1987 dodge dakota

Most cars have a voltage regulator behind the dashboard that supplies a stable voltage for the gauges. Have a look, if you follow the wires from the gauges you will probably find one wire from each gauge going to a small regulator box. If you cant get a new one an electronic technician can build one for you.

After market fuel pump installed in 2004 malibu maxx why did the fuel gauge stop working?

it sounds like a problem with the sending unit. This is usually with the fuel pump itself. The wiring may not have been hooked up quite right or the sending unit may just be bad. That will cause the fuel gauge to stop working. The wiring harness for different cars is different and even varies sometimes just on year of the vehicle.
