SOURCE: Gas gauge in the dash malfunctioning - 1990 Nissan Hardbody truck

It sounds like the float on the sending unit is sinking. Don't know what the float is made of, but over time, it will soak up gas and start to get heavy. This would cause your problem. I don't think it's the gauge, but if you want to test it, disconnect the wires at the tank. The gauge will either go to full or empty. If you ground the sending wire, the gauge should respond the opposite way it was. good luck

SOURCE: I have 1986 Alfa Spider that won't start. Car has been sitting for a year. I replaced battery, fuel tank, fuel sender unit, both fuel pumps. I seems that the in tank pumps is not getting any po

Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.

Gas guage does not work problem in tank


One problem is the non-working fuel guage sender, the other is ...? Well, it doesn't really matter because the tank pump (even if working fine) and fuel level sender are an integrated unit and must be removed and replaced as a unit after the tank is unbolted/unstrapped and lowered down for acces to its top. It might seem bothersome to not be able to replace only pump or sender (which would be cheaper) but, in the long run, why not reinstall the tank with full life expectancy for both sender and pump before you have to face a difficult and unpleasant tank removal the next time...which could be years, weeks, days in the future. In most cases, the job is one they they have neither facilities, help, tools, patience or confidence to perform; so for them its bite-the-bullet time. Get several bids, for sure.

First check to see if earth on tank sender unit is OK. If unit is on top of tank, remove and see if float is OK.

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working


There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options

2002 Chevy Silverado 3500 Fuel gauge reads 1/2 when actually empty and with the ignition switch off the fuel gauge jumps to half the vehicle has dual tanks and the fuel pump module in the front tank was...


If this was not a problem before the pump replacement then the sender in the tank may of faied or is contaminated with sulfer which is corrosive to the silver electrical contacts.

Do a search on sulfur corrosion and fuel sender units. Gm has big problem with this. Its possable the stress from removing the old and installing the new pump created an issue with contacts. If this is the case you will now need a sender unit.

Fuel gauge reading zero and light on ?


Ford has lots of problems with the sender reliability. Typically, the sender (and expensive fuel pump) replacement resolves the issue. To test, you need to take the connection off of the sending unit, at the tank, turn on ignition, and then ground and un ground it and view results at the gauge. If the gauge responds, the sender needs to be replaced.

There are aftermarket senders that cost less than OEM.
