Hi derek_bai286,
9 times out of ten, the problem is inside the gas tank.
As far as diagnosing the problem, you might shake on the wire that comes from the fuel tank and see if the gauge moves any. Dropping the tank is fairly simple and check the float.
Good luck and if you have any more problems or questions let me know.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Kevin

98 gmc jimmy fuel guage not working


No issues with the fuel guage that I know of , but you can follow the basic troubleshooting guidelines. Starting with the wiring disconnect at the fuel tank for a bad connector or bad connection. Only other connection would be up to the instrument cluster in the vehicle. Only replaceable items would be the guage or the sending unit in the fuel tank. You can disconnect the return line circuit or connector at the at the gas tank and jump a wire to the ground the that feeds the gauge and see if the guage moves, but don't and i repeat don't hold to long because the guage will go over hard over and could damage the guage. If the guage moved and I would suspect a bad float on the sending unit or a bad sending unit, either case the fuel pump assy would have to come out for repairs.

Low fuel light on gauge doesnt work


lamp burned out, ?
but does the fuel guage work 100%
and at what tank level do you expect the lamp to come on.?
did you read the FSM on this, its covered
or alldata.com?
free.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

on this car, the PCM reads the fuel level then sets the fuel guage
and if the level (voltage from tank sender) is below a specific
voltage , it glows the lamp, low fuel
so if the fuel guage works, and the lamp is dead, the lamp is burned out. (or conn. bad to it)

Where can I find a fuse for the gas gage on a 2004 Chrysler T&C


The gas guage does not have its own fuse but instead gets its power from the "integrated power module" that handles power delivery to the entire instrament cluster and beyond. If the guage is in-op,[doesnt work] then you will need to have a few "hands-on tests run to verify if the sending unit in the tank[fuel pump module] is functional or if this problem lyes else-where, wiring problem, bad ground,ect,ect.. One hint would be if the low fuel level l;ight still functions without the fuel guage working,then your problem is NOT in the tank and very likely is in your dash-electrical or faulty guage.

97 Silhouette Fuel guage not working correctly


drop fuel tank. if guage moves all around its probably the fuel level sensor on fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank. If the guage stay's in one spot its the guage , replace instrument cluster assembly. you can take just the glass off the cluster and move the fuel guage needle and it will work (if stuck) but for how long? The wires to the guage come from the sending unit to the power train control module to the instrument cluster. pray its not in the wiring.
