I was testing a new radio to se if it worked. Now the fuel gauge and amp gauge dont work. when I check for power on the radio leads the temp gauge goes all the way up and fuel goes below e. All of the


I would sugest when the temp gauge goes up you are actually earthing the wire for the temp guage. I think you have entered the wrong harness for the wires & you have connected the radio to your guages. Remove radio & reconnect wires where they were before.

Fuel gage not working on a 1998 vw jetta


i believe he means how can he fix the fuel gauge not working problem not the running out of gas. since we already know why that happened (didnt know he was out of gas due to broken fuel gauge) theres only a few things it could be. the gauges power source or ground could be corroded or broken, the guage itself is broken or the sending unit is worn out or the wiring is faulty or broken to it.

Fuel gauge stoped working and the low fuel light stay on


The guage stopped working, because a code set , possibly due to a faulty fuel sending unit, or a wiring issue. This would neeed to be scan tested for the current code. After repair is made, and the code is cleared, the guage will work again. Thanks...

Fuel guage wiring from tank to dash not responding in a restored 88 crown vic interceptor do you have a wiring diagram or just some hints as to the wherabouts of all the connections between the two. A...


It kind of sounds like the Anti-Slosh Module. The fuel gauge is connected to the fuel gauge sender through the Anti-Slosh Module. The sender is a variable resistor connected to the float in the fuel tank which determines the amount of fuel in the tank Anti-Slosh Module. The Anti-Slosh Module provides a delay circuit to the fuel gauge which prevents the fuel gauge from fluctuating due to excessive movement of gas in the fuel tank. The Anti-Slosh Module is part of the instrument cluster and to replace it, you will need to replace the instrument cluster. I had to do one when I worked at Ford on one of their cars.
