Likely need a new level in the tank. There is a float in there that may be stuck or corroded to the point that the signal isn't getting g to the gauge. It's also possible the gauge in the dash is bad. I would go with the level sensor in the tank first.

Fuel gauge is not reading properly 2006 Mercury Mountaineer


Fuel gauges are not meant to be precision instruments. You might want to fill up a 2 gallon can and drive the car until it runs out of fuel to see how low the gauge will go before it's really empty. Use the 2 gallons to get back to a filling station.
I once spent three working days trying to get a 1972 Chrysler to read full when it's full, half when it's half and quarter tank when the tank has a quarter amount of fuel. The customer did not want to accept anything else, but in the end all I did was to get close, not exact.
It is possible that the fuel float in the gas tank is "drowned", that is, the plastic float might have a slow leak and some fuel found its way inside. This will cause the float to submerge slightly and give you a low reading. To check this you will have to remove the float unit from the tank.
In any case, if you feel up the job (not easy) remove the float unit from the tank and manually move it up and down while checking the meter reading. You can bend the wire holding the float to correct misreadings.
Personally, I wouldn't bother, just be aware that when the reading is low, feel safe that you still have enough fuel to get to the next filling station.

2005 mercury mountaineer power window will ot let down, radion will not play and fuel gauge not working. This all went out the same time what is this?


Initially look at the fuses. The windows will have their own fuse and the radio may work on the same fuse as the gauges. The fuses must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown ones. A small pair of pliers will ease removal of the fuses.

2005 Mercury Mountaineer..gas gauge including miles to empty digital failed at the same time the radio and power windows did. Other guges and digital notifications work. fuses are good. Any ideas?


You have to have a professional scan tool put on
most vehicles today, to look at the systems data

If I had your truck I would start there

Then I could do nothing without wirng diagrams,
just to see the systems it has & give me a guide
to start some testing

I have a 2005 Mercury Sable that suppose to have a 18 gallon gas talk, but I can only get at most, 13 gallons of gas in it and it never will fill up. I have never been able to fill the gas tank up in full,...


With the gas gauge not working right, you have probably never let it get completely empty. And as far as the gas gauge goes, it's probably the fuel level switch. you can not purchase these separate from the sending unit. It would be a $500.00 + I would live with it untill the pump goes out, because this is part of the sending unit also.

Fuel gauge problem


Got the same problem, when empty fuel gauge shows full but fuel indicator light lights on.
Problem was the gauge itself and replaced by a second hand one.
How to remove: Remove the front glass (8 screws), remove the black frame (free), pull out both gauges (Fuel & Temp) they come togheter with their frame using a little screewdriver under their corners. Push the new unit in.That's it. Michel
