SOURCE: fuel guage doesn't work

Most common cause of this is a defective fuel level sending unit inside the gas tank. Remove the gas tank and replace the sending unit.

SOURCE: 2007 F350 4x4 regular cab V10 gas guage quit working I had the sending unit and fuel pump changed the fuel guage went to 1/4 and sat there. Any tips? Fuel guage wont work.

I'm assuming this has dual tanks, do you know if it is not working on both tanks ?
Most people would check the circuit for the gauge at the tank. The sending unit grounds the gauge on the dash.

SOURCE: where is the sender unit for my Mitsubishi L300 fuel guage

The fuel sender in located inside your fuel tank. it will most likely be screwed to the side or the top of the tank so you may need to remove your tank to gain access The fuel hose(s) go to the same place so simply trace the fuel hoses back to the tank. Some vehicles have an access panel in the floor of the van so check for this. To test the fuel gauge, turn the ignition key to ON ( warning lights lit but do not crank the engine), remove the wire to the fuel sender and ground it to the body of the vehicle - the fuel gauge should go tho the FULL mark if all is Ok

Honda accord 95 gas gauge not working


Hi, The Sending UnitThe sending unit is located in the fuel tank of the car. It consists of a float, usually made of foam, connected to a thin, metal rod. The end of the rod is mounted to a variable resistor. A resistor is an electrical device that resists the flow of electricity. The more resistance there is, the less current will flow. In a fuel tank, the variable resistor consists of a strip of resistive material connected on one side to the ground. A wiper connected to the gauge slides along this strip of material, conducting the current from the gauge to the resistor. If the wiper is close to the grounded side of the strip, there is less resistive material in the path of the current, so the resistance is small. If the wiper is at the other end of the strip, there is more resistive material in the current's path, so the resistance is large.First of all, the guage needs a 12 volt electrical supply to operate. The entire system extends from the fuse block inside the front passenger compartment, through a resister (which lowers the voltage), on to the float assembly inside the gas tank then on back to the fuel guage itself,

First , test the fuse responsible for the fuel guage. Note: this fuse is usualy responsible for the fuel guage only or several items.

If the fuse checks OK, then a check must be made to troubleshoot the entire length of the system or until the problem is located.

If the fuel tank sending unit is faulty, the fuel guage can read any position, including full or empty. The sending unit can be tested by first checking to see if the unit can be removed from the fuel ttank by either partially or fully lowering the tank.

Prior to removing the sending unit, check to ensure there is voltage at the wires leading into the fuel tank.

With voltage confirmed, remove the unit and check for continuity at each end of the float arms travel .with a multimeter If the unit does not check good, replace the unit. Note: Sometimes after a long time in service the strip of resistive material can wear through and plainly be seen.

If the unit checks good, there could be a bad ground somewhere along the line.

If all else checks good, then the fault most likely is a bad fuel guage. The guage also can be tested by applying varying degrees of voltage (0-12VDC ONLY) to the teminals at the rear of the guage.

If the guage is bad, it must be replaced.

I hope this information has been of assisstance to you,

My fuel guage doesn't work


you don't, it either works or does'nt, check all grounds, put power to it (12) volts, sending units are very delicate, care must be taken when replacing, in tank, . a wire diagram would show you the power wire, the ground wire, etc., maybe you can check it ?

Gas guage only reads empty always, ive took down the gas tank and everything is ok there, i performed risisastance test and the unit went from 16 ohms to 150 ohms whitch i took that it is working, so with...


If you ground the wire from the gauge to the sender with the ignition on the gauge should go past full. If it doesn't you'll have to trace that circuit all the way back to the gauge. If that circuit is OK you may have a bad gauge or no power to it. If the gauge does go past full when you ground the fuel gauge wire your sending unit may not be grounded. I'm assuming there is a float on the sending unit.

2001 chevy 1500 5.3l 4x4 fuel guage not working. changed sending unit no change. grounded gauge in dash went to full not guage. not getting power to sending unit fuses/ wiring good


You won't get power at the sending unit. The sending unit provides a variable ground to the dash unit. Where did you ground the dash unit? If you disconnect the sending unit at the tank and ground the fuel gauge circuit there the gauge should go to full. If if doesn't the problem is between that connector and the place you cheched it before. If it does the problem is with the sender. Occasionally new parts are found to be defective.

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.

Fuel guage does not work 1999 Chevy Tahoe


the 100% for sure cause of this problem is the sending unit for the fuel guage, it is located in the gas tank. U may have to replace the fuel pump module to get the sending unit, as a rule they are one piece, if u have over 100,000 miles that is a good idea anyway.
