SOURCE: 1995 Honda Civic fuel gauge always shows full.

Well, theres a sending unit/float in the tank that sends a signal thru wires to your instrument cluster's fuel gauge. You should have an auto electric repairperson determine where your problem lies. It's not often the needle's just 'stuck' to where you could dislodge it. More often, it's pegged overfull or underempty-signaling a shorted component upstream of the gauge.

Similar problem and found the solution:
In the back of the gauge, where the 2 coils are located, there are very tiny copper wires which connect all the resistors/diodes. they each travel from within the coil and are soldered to 3 out of the 4 mounting pins. if any of these wires are shorting out or disconnected, the gauge will malfunction.

- take the gauge and flip upside down
- temp gauge has 1 resistor (blue) and 1 diode (copper)
- fuel gauge has 2 resistors, no diodes
- 1 wire should be attached to bottom mounting pin (letter E for EMPTY)
- 1 wire should be attached to pin holding both resistors (half tank)
- 1 wire should be attached to the stand-alone ground pin (no mounting bracket)

Hope that helps!

The fuel sending unit is bad,it is in the tank,you may have to buy a fuel pump assy,to receive the sending unit ,if it is not available by itself.

The speedometer not working right why? and the left front seat want move why how do i fix it what is causing it not to move? i can hear a sound when i press the seat switch.


A few possible issues that may cause your speedometer to not work are a bad speed sensor / gear. Could be an internal gear inside the transmission, not as common of a problem.

What type of sound do you hear when trying to move the driver seat ? Is it a clicking or the motor seat motor running ? This can help determine what may be your problem.

Heat gauge needle pointed the wrong way. Catches on fuel gauge needle


I have fixed speedometer and RPM gauges before. Never had the temp gauge do this. You have to remove the instrument panel and rotate it clock wise. Watch the needle and see if it moves. If it does, take it back to the original position. I check them with a scanner. But they seem to work right. The just have glitches sometimes that drives the needle to the other side.

The fuel gauge isn't affected by the pump. Maybe there's some varnish on the sending unit and when it's really cold it just kinda sticks, then when it warms up it will move again

Fuel gauge doesn t work


Most of the time it is the sending unit in the fuel tank.Remove the connection from the fuel tank,and using a test light,test the wires that you removed from the fuel tank. Clip the alligator clip on the test light to a good known ground,and use the probe on the test light to touch the terminals in the connector you unplugged.Make sure the ignition key is turned to the on position,right before start position.Have someone to watch the gauge.At this point the gauge should be showing past the full position.When touching the right terminal in the connector you removed from the tank,the fuel gauge should move down toward the empty mark.If this fuel gauge doe do this when you are testing it,then the gauge in the dash is good and the sending unit is bad.

When jackaroo 1988 is motoring where does the needle in the temperature gauge normally be


If your temp gauge has only the cold (C) or hot (H) letters then the operating range would be the width of the needle under 1/2 way between c and h. If it remains steady at slightly over 1/2 way that would be just the setting of the gauge. How to get to know where the needle would sit at a specific position in relation to water temp. Do the following
Remove the temp sender unit and attach an earth wire to the body of the unit to earth. Place the sender unit in a container of water up to the threads .Put a mercury thermometer in the container beside the sender unit Apply heat to the container and watch the gauge needle move in relation to the thermometer reading. Operating temp will be about 80 degrees C on the thermometer and that would be about 1/2 way on the gauge.

All other gauges work on the hyundai but the fuel gauge wont work shows empty all the time how can i fix this problem


Turn the ignition on and off several times before inspecting the gas tank because a blown fuse is the usual cause for fuel gauge malfunctioning. If the gauge remains motionless, check your fuse box and determine the fuse's location using your service manual.
Replace the fuse if the link is broken or damaged. Then, inspect the gauge's wire connections for cleanliness and make sure the wires are connected.
Turn the ignition switch to the "off" position. Attach one end of a jumper cable to the fuel-gauge terminal behind the gauge itself. Attach the other end to the ignition terminal.
Replace the sender unit in the gas tank if the gauge reads full and your car does not have a full tank. Replace the fuel gauge if the needle remains inoperative.

I have a 95 jeep cherokee the gas needle doesnt read. can you tell me how i can fix the problem


Most times that problem can be traced to a bad sending unit inside the tank.(requires tank and fuel pump assembly be removed) If you are getting a good connection at the harness, that's the next place I'd look.(the feed side of the harness should have one terminal that is sending a pulse signal to the tank...check with a normal volt meter, not digital) Otherwise the problem is in the gauge itself.
That requires you to remove the gauges from the dashboard in order to fix (replace) it.

1998 Honda Accord V6 3.0L LX Coupe --- Temperature gauge issue


I'm guessing that you have resistance in the wire from the gauge to the instrument cluster or that the grounding is bad somewhere. Still have a problem? Leave it alone because you know what is 'right' or insert a resistor in the line to recalibrate it.
