THE FIX FOR THIS IS A NEW GAS GAUGE SENDING UNIT, THE SENDER IS LOCATED INSIDE THE FUEL TANK.

My 2000 Chevy s15 Rpm and Gas Gauge is not working


I didn't see an s15 in that model year, in my database?
If the speedometer works but the tach doesn't, I think something is wrong with instrument cluster?
GM has had a problem with fuel gage sending units. The sending units are not hard wired to instrument cluster, they send signal to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster, telling the cluster the gage settings.
It may be possible to use different size resistors in place of the fuel level sending unit, to see if fuel gage reacts properly to different resistors, if the gage reacts properly, then I think the problem is the fuel gage sending unit.

Code 463 on 2006 Ascender which is fuel sensor high input. Where is the sensor so I can replace it. Gas gage is stuck on empty although my tank is full. Was fine and then it was eratic and then just stays...


It's in the fuel tank. The book says you have to drop the tank, but i'd still check for an access panel inside the car. I dropped a tank once, following the book instuctions, and found the panel after I removed the tank.(not on this type of vehicle though)

OIL PRESSURE GAGE AND SPEEDOMETOR STARTED TO GO ERATIC AT THE SAME TIME


suspect a BCM unit ,the speedo head in common terms ,its has complicated electronics built into it ,and this i think is your problem ,check the output voltage from the alternator across the battery at 2000rpm because if this is high then it will damage the electronics ,it musnt rise above 14.7 v

Where is the fuse box located for the electrical components such as the fuel gauge etc.... also how much is a steering mechanism


The fuel gage is not on a fuse. If there something wrong it will be on the sender unit or the wiring....
Can't answer the cost part....I think it would be five times higher where I am. For that type of info, I think it's a good idea to state your location....

2004 Rendeyvous fuel gage problem


you have to back track the wire from the sending unit to the guage. If there is no power when you put your volt meter to the wire and the body you should get movement. There could be a break in the wire, or it could be a bad guage or a sending unit. obviously the sending unit is the hardest to fix. So start with the wire, then the guage then the sending unit. If you do replace the sending unit. I personaly would replace the wire no matter what. One solid wire with a good heat and weather proof coating.
