SOURCE: Fuel gauge not working

Normally I'd say the float/sending unit in the gas tank is the culprit, however the fact that your service engine light is involved requires further investigation, You need to hook up an obd2 reader to the interface mounted under your dashboard and see what it has to say, there might be a simple error code preventing your gauge from functioning. Many auto parts stores will do this for you for free...

2005 chevy cavalier gas gauge doesnt work goes into the temp gauge and when i try to put gas in it spills out like it is full.


It sounds like the fuel gauge sender unit is faulty, probably causing a wiring problem with other dash dials. Also sounds like you already full of fuel. The float and sender unit need checking and/or replacing.
(float in fuel tank). The fuel tank needs to be drained completely to do this work. Is it something you can do ? If not, it's not a major operation for a mechanic and the parts are cheap. Good luck... Red.

Check gauges light on, Temp gauge at 0, vehicle wont start.


Could be connected, but could also be two different problems.
It could be something in the key switch, or a wiring problem. Or it could be a wiring problem with the temp gauge and something else causing the engine not to start.
Do you have spark and fuel pressure at the injectors ? And does the gas gauge work ?

How do you check the fuel pressure


First disconnect the fuel relay and start the engine and let it run until it cuts off.There is a fuel service port that is on the fuel rail.You will need a fuel pressure gauge then connect it to the service port and turn key on and read gauge.After reading gauge you can put the relay back in.

I have a 2001 L100 seires Saturn and My service light and the security light both are on and the car wont start. the battery seems to be fine all the lights work i left it alone for a while and it started...


No, the fuel gauge not working wouldn't have anything to do with your not starting problem , probably the gauge is bad . With the SECURITY light lit , anti-theft system problem ! Service light ????? Service engine soon ? Or service vehicle ? With the light's on code's DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are stored . Have it checked , don't guess as to what the problem is. This would prevent the buying of un needed parts .

Fuel gauge does not move, stays on E, after car starts. Low fuel light is not coming on.


Hello graytape, was the fuel gauge and low fuel light working and then one day just stopped working?, if so, you have probably blown a fuse and you should be able to locate what fuse and where it's located in the owner's manual.
If you recently got the vehicle and then you found out that the gas gauge and low fuel light doesn't work then that is something completely different.
without knowing the year of the vehicle I can only give you an educated guess.
Many vehicles have a float in the gas tank and this float is directly linked to what you see on the gas gauge. However, after a number of years the floats get saturated from the fuel and become heavy, heavy enough to where they don't float anymore. That is one of the most common causes of the fuel gauge not working.
The sensor that activates the low fuel warning light may be independent of the fuel gauge and the fuel in the tank isn't low enough to turn it on. Your tank has to be very low to activate the low fuel warning light.
Good luck!

My gas gauge does not work at all is it my fuel pump filter or is it something else


Fuel gauges in general are a separate from fuel pump circuits. Usually you start by finding the fuse panel and check the gauge fuse, if the rest of your gauges are working this usually means the fuse for all gauges including temp, oil, fuel are ok. Next you'll have to locate the sending unit wires at the fuel tank and look to see if any are disconnected or damaged and have good clean connections. Next consult a factory manual regarding the method of checking the gauge some companies ground the wire or while others manufacturers require a variable poteniometer usually between 0-100 ohms resistance. slowly turn the pot from 0 through the specs to cause the gauge to sweep from empty to full while watching the gauge making sure it sweeps smoothly. If the gauge is fine the tank will have to come down and a new sender installed, also while you in the tank check that the fuel gauge float does just that floats!

All the light on instrusment panel are on,none of the gauge work.


Fuel gauge, is fuel sending unit or gauge itself.
Air bag could be a faulty clock spring, bad bag, bad module, or something else. Air conditioner I would need to know what is not working right to elaborate on that.

Fuel gauge doesn't work on a 1989 dodge omni


Hi

Sounds like he forgot to reconnect the wires ?

Check this first, if they are OK, bridge them, and the fuel gage should read full.
If this is so, you can get a new tank unit.

Expect he has left the wires off !

Good Luck !

a FixYa rating would be appreciated Please !
