2005 GMC SIERRA 5.3l 1500 CODES P0449/P0463 FUEL GAGE NOT WORKING AND LIGHT STAYS ON CAN IT BE THE CLUSTER OR FUELGAGE CAUSE LIGHT STAYS ON


What light stay's on ? GM had stepper motor problems 2003 to 2006 . stepper motor in side instrument cluster is what controls the gauge needle . Video's on youtube GM stepper motor problems . Do you know what evaporative emissions systems are ?
DTC P0449 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) vent Solenoid Control Circuit
A battery positive voltage is supplied to the evaporative emission (EVAP) canister vent solenoid valve. The control module grounds the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve control circuit to close the valve by means of an internal switch called a driver. The scan tool displays the commanded state of the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve as ON or OFF. The control module monitors the status of the driver. If the control module detects an incorrect voltage for the commanded state of the driver, this DTC sets.

DTC P0463 Fuel Level Sensor 1 Circuit High Voltage
The fuel level sensor changes resistance in response to fuel level. The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the signal circuit of the fuel level sensor in order to determine the fuel level. When the fuel tank is full, the sensor resistance is low and the PCM senses a low signal voltage. When the fuel tank is empty, the sensor resistance is high and the PCM senses a high signal voltage. The PCM uses the signal circuit of the fuel level sensor in order to calculate the percentage of remaining fuel in the tank. The PCM sends the fuel level percentage via the class 2 serial data circuit to the instrument cluster in order to control the fuel gage. The fuel level information is also used for misfire and evaporative emission (EVAP) diagnostics.
With this code stored would suspect sending unit in the fuel tank or a wiring problem . Your best bet mite be to have a qualified repair shop check it out .

Fuel guage wont read


The wire to the sender in the fuel tank is shorted. If it was open or disconnected it would read full.

1989 volvo gl fuel gauge not working properly


Your sending unit in the tank is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a short in it. That is the only thing that can go wrong with it. There is probley a broken wire on it so it wont read right.

My fuel gauge floats from full to empty when I stop at a light! And its stays on empty until I drive for about five minute why is that? I can't get an accurate fuel reading!!


I have the same vehicle and my car actually was full of gas, registered empty & left me on the side of the road..It was the sensor in the fuel line that had to be replaced.

Fuel gauge not give proper reading.. register full


Sorry to say,but the fuel sending unit is the problem,the fuel tank will have to be lowered out of the vehicle to replace the unit.If the fuel sending unit is not available by itself you will have to replace the whole fuel pump assembley.

88 fiero starts on it own, but wont stay running.


the brain is not sending the proper fuel pressure codes to the fuel rail to evenly distribute the fuel to the intake and fuel rail.
perform a fuel pressure test check on it ok? also run a diagnostic scan on it and see what codes come out.
