Fuel gauge alwaya read full


The wire between the dash and the fuel tank is connected to ground somewhere. there is a control that fails too but if the control failed the temperture gauge also won't work. The wire can get in troble inside the tank too as if someone tried to steal the gas with a hose. if you can disconnect the connector ( wireing ) at the fuel tank and turn the key on and the gauge goes to empty you know the troble is inside the tank and the pump sender unit will need to be removed from the tank to correct the problem or even the gauge unit replaced.70198425.jpg

Fuel tank show empty when full


either the wire feeding the gauge is broken somewhere between the gauge or the fuel tank, or the sender unit needs replacing. Anyone recently work on your fuel delivery system?

I have a 2004 Caddy van, (South Africa) the fuel gauge shows empty even when the tank is full


You need to pull the fuel sending unit out of the tank and replace, if you have any other gages out it culd be in the instrument cluster, however that is the most common problem for that car. Sending unit. It The wire may have come off too.

You don;t say whether the fuel gauge is reading accurately, or whether it's always on empty. If the gauge is always showing empty, it's most likely a problem with the sending unit in the fuel tank. Check the resistance across the two terminals of the sending unit.

On a C900, the fuel sender level unit is separate from the fuel pump and located on the right side top of the tank, accessible by removing the trunk floor lift up panel (the pump is located on the left side top of the tank.
Possible problems are: electrical line off or broken, float not working (it's fairly delicate); or gauge not working.

Test the resistance of the sending unit with the lines disconnected, the resistance should be 2.6 to 3.8 ohms full tank, 63.3 to 67.5 ohms empty tank; and test for voltage across the top of the sender unit, if no voltage, that's likely the problem!

If the gauge is otherwise reading accurately (showing 'full' for a full tank, etc) then the problem is likely a gauge malfunction and can be simply replaced.

Good luck!
