SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2002 Grand Prix Sending Unit

the fuel sending unit is located on the top of the fuel tank, On the grand prix you will have to drop the tank down (remove the tank straps) and the remove the ring that holds the unit in and then you can just pull the unit right out of the tank. You then place the new unit in and the installation is the reverse of removal

The temperature gauge sending unit is located in the front section of the intake manifold, just to the right of the alternator on the 4.6L engines. Got this from autozones repair manuals

Fuel guage not working


I would guess that not many would do this as there is requirement for them to be both the same to balance out . GM had a problem for a while when the supplier of the gauges could not match the sender units and the gauges generally didn't work well. The real answer is to go to a wreckers that specialises in you make of car and get the dash unit to replace the damaged unit.

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 ?

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.

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.

Fuel guage dosent work is there got to be power to the sending unit


Yes, there needs to be power to the sending unit (usually located with the fuel pump in the fuel tank) for the sending unit to work. Check the fuel pump fuse and relay to be sure both are OK.

Gas guage stop working where is the fuse for it?


These trackers are notorious for the wiring to the sending unit on the top of the fuel tank rotting. My bet is this is your problem and not a fuse. If you do drop your tank and your luck is anything like mine :( you will see there is allot more in need of replacing. I replaced my tank and sending unit due to all the rust. Somewhat costly but in the long run it was worth it. you may be able to just replace the sending unit by removing the screws on the top of the tank and dropping in a new one but mine was so far gone I could not get the screws out. If your wires to your sending unit are rotted I would bet your wires to the fuel pump are not in very god shape either.

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.
