Gas gage not working


Maybe a problem with instrument cluster?
Usually the circuit works off resistance to ground. The sending unit in gas tank provides resistance to ground. The signal wire for fuel gage is a purple wire, if goes to fuel pump wiring connector. With key on, use digital multimeter, check for voltage. If no voltage, either problem with wiring circuit or instrument cluster. W/0 looking at instrument cluster, I don't know if you can replace gage itself w/o replacing instrument cluster?

If voltage on the purple wire, ground it, while a helper watches the gage, if the gage starts reacting, then check the grounds for fuel pump wiring connector, if that checks ok, suspect the fuel pump sending unit has a problem.

Gas gage works then goes up and down when going down the road the car will stall a anytime


You need to replace the fuel pump, there is a sensor that is inside the pump called a sending unit, this sending unit measures the amount of fuel in the gas tank, and also since your car is stalling I would definitely say that I would start by replacing the fuel pump!

I have a pontiac 2002 aztec and the fuel gauge goes up and down no matter how much gas is n it.


Replace your fuel sending unit, This is located in your fuel tank. And tell your cars computer how much fuel you have, You will most likely have to drop your fuel tank. Best of luck to you.

2004 Pontic Aztek gas gauge


probably you got a problem with your fuel gauge sender that goes inside in the fuel tank, that sender is only a coil that works together with a fuel lever,if you want to save some money buy it separate from the fuel pump.

My gas gauges on my 2003 Pontiac Aztek will not work. How can I fix it?


First check to see if you have any fuses related to ''gages'' thar are bad. You will have to find the wire near the gas tank connection that ''grounds'' the gage. When you disconnect the wire you can ''ground'' or touch it to the body...The gage should sweep from E to F when you do this,if the gage in the dash is good..If not you probably have a bad''sending''' unit in the tank itself..Better known as a ''float assembly.

Gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on


This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

I have a 2002 Ford Taures and the gas gage goes on empty intermittantly. Then the check engine light goes on. I have flex fuel and don't know how to trouble shoot the problem I can restart the car and most...


i know that if the gas cap is loose then the check engine light will come on. as far as the fuel gauge going up and down the "float" you have in your tank could be getting stuck. This is a pain in the rear to change because you will have to drop the fuel tank and either replace the part connected (best bet) to it or make sure the passage is clear.
