Most likely the fuel level sending unit is defective. I have also seen a faulty voltage regulator cause a fuel guage to peg out. (Go past full and not move). I don't know if it is the problem in this case, but it is something to consider. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My gauge went past full almost back to empty


bad fuel pump. remember the fuel gauge is built into the fuel pumps, so you need to replace whole pump

Fuel Gauge wont move past 3/4 tank even with full tank


There is no easy fix.
Either the gauge on the dash is faulty, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit uses a float which may be getting stuck at the 3/4 mark.

My 97 S-10 Blazer fuel guage wont work


Likely, it's the sender unit in the tank. To check wiring and your dash gauge, you can pull apart the connector at the fuel tank, find the wire for the gauge sender unit (its color coded-I dont kinow what the one for your car would be), and on the harness side(the one going to front of vehicle) use a jumper wire and ground that wire to the car frame(get me? you want to ground the wire going to your dash gauge)-with key on, your gauge working properly will move up to half-way or even full. That tells you your dash gauge is working and your wiring to gauge is good. If gauge doesn't move when grounded(double check for a good ground), then your dash gauge may be bad.

1997 blazer my fuel gauge reads past full all the time how can you tell if the gauge is bad


I would guess that your sending unit from the tank is grounding out which means it need to be replaced in most cases. If the gauge is bad, it will usually effect the other readings in the cluster.

Fuel guage was erratic then went past full mechanic installed a new pump and sending unit now it stayed at 1/4 tank and when I filled it itwent below empty. bad sending unit or bad guage or bad mechanic?


Test the gauge by using a test light ,and grounding the test light clip to a good known ground,then touch the pink wire on the connector harness going to the tank,with the connector unplugged,and key on,the gauge will move slowly to the empty mark,and lower ,then remove the test light and it will go past full,if it does this,it is a good gauge,and the sending unit,was put in wrong,or the part was bad.

1997 blazer fuel gauge doesnt work i put a new fuel pump in and it still didnt work.... its pegged at full


Unplug the fuel pump, turn on the ignition and see if it goes to empty. Is this a 4 or 2 door blazer? If it is a 4 door this will be easy.
