You may need a new fuel level sending unit. Check Nissan's help forum. You can get a free login and than will be able to download upto two files a day. Check their service bulletins out. They had a problem with the older Frontiers and created bulletin NTB99-064 check and see if any thing new has come about. This bulletin details fixing a ground connection under the passengerside kickpanel. Your check engine light may be something else, you might check and see if any of your local part shops do free code reads. FYI My 1998 frontier had a similar problem which I ignored until it started blowing fuel pump fuses. Turned out the fuel level sender started to short out and take the fuses.

2013 Kia Optima. Fuel gauge shows 1/16th of a tank and the low fuel light is not on. Engine shut down. Out of gas. Add gas. Car starts up. What would cause the gauge to misread in this way?


most fuel gauge readings are not that accurate anyway so its out of fuel but not what the is guage reading. but the fuel level sensor in the tank may be at fault sound like its the prob but the instument pack should put the low fuel light on if its fitted on your vehicle spec but not always fitted even though the warning light is present hope this helps

Gas gauge not working but it has power


you may have crossed the wires. on the read wire some were but if your pump is in the tank then you have put the wires in the way of the gauge sensor easy thing to do when putting the top back on. just take the top back off and move the wires to the oher side wile holding the top and putting it back on.

The fuel gauge goes to full but it drops rapidly what could the issue be?


you might have a leak or it just happens to be that most cars have this issue. even if you have a lot of gas in the car, the gauge shows a higher amount than it really has in the tank. this is caused by the actual shape of the gas tank. the less gas you have, the more accurate the gauge is.

Gas gauge flys from quarter tank to way past full mark and sticks


This isn't a definite fix, but it may be that the gasoline in your tank is 'sloshing' forwards and backwards and your sensour is getting readings when the gasoline is in different positions in your tank. The connection is actually above your gasoline tank and you'll have to take off the tank harnesses and drop the tank if you want to check to see if the connection became slightly loose, otherwise you can just fill your gas tank and reset your temporary milage gage (that's the little black button near your RPM meter) and remember how many miles you get per tank.

Gas gauge


Sounds like you have a bare or broken wire earthing out on the chassis/body Trace the wires from the tank back to the engine bay and check that the wires are intact.

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!
