Gas light is stuck on and shows empy, even though there is a 1/2 tank of gas.
You need to replace the fuel level sensor that is parted with your fuel pump assembly. Before assuming this, we want to make sure fuel sensor connection is fully connected and seated. You can locate the fuel pump via the rear left passenger seat. You need to pull back the backseat, and there is a sqaure carpet panel, open this... and you will be able to see some wiring that goes into a cap. Check these wiring if there is any dirt, corrosion or maybe loosen. If everything seems fine, then definitly your fuel level sensor needs to be replaced, It either stuck at the half tank indiactor, or damaged. For a 05 sorento, If you decide you want to replace this, I recommend you to change the entire unit, about 250.00+ for a new unit includes the (fuel filter, pump, and level indicator). If you need direction or help installing it, I would be gladly to help.
