Question about 2006 Isuzu Ascender

I have a 2005 Saturn Relay. Everytime we fill-up

I have a 2005 Saturn Relay. Everytime we fill-up the tank, the gas gauge will stay on empty and the low fuel light will come on. Finally, after about 30 min of driving the gauge will slowly go up and finally register the right amount. I was thinking it is a float or pump issue, what do yo think?

Some of these GM's have a seperate fuel guage relay under the dash. Their not cheap. Since you could have anything from a bad sender in the tank to a bad relay its best to leave this to a professional. Next time this happens try smacking the fuel tank a few times hard. If the gauge goes up its most likely a sender in the tank issue. If nothing happens then it really needs to be diagnosed correctly.

Pick up a diagnostics module with reset capabilities, plug it in to the port below the steering column and reset the error codes. This will reset the sending unit and it should read correctly after the rest. I had a similar problem and this inexpensive solution fixed the issue. Saved or $500.00 in repair and diagnostics.

Gas gauge shows empty after filling gas tank. Eventually the gas gauge will register the proper level.


The gauge circuit is shunted on most cars, this is wierd, but needed to stabilize the readings... Your description sounds like normal function. Drivers would complain if the qauge were to be instant, going around corners, starting, stopping, all move fuel, and the gauge would indicate this, cauing driver alarm...Been this way for ever, although yours sounds like it is on the far side of the scale...if it reads correctly after a while, you could replace everything and you would have the same performance.

Take it back to where you had it serviced. They probably simply missed connecting the fuel level sensor. The engine light is probably from a missed emissions hose that goes to the gas tank.
