It's in the fuel tank you might have to drop the tank.

Fuel gauge Stuck


The most common way to find out is to test both components.
The sending unit in most vehicles grounds the gauge on the dash.
You would unplug the sending unit - pump harness at the tank and ground the sending unit wire. If the gauge climbs up to full the sending unit is at fault.
You could also measure resistance in the circuit in the tank when the tank is close to empty and after filling it up. The resistance should be different each time.

My fuel gauge is stuck on half i need to locate my fuel filter


This could be the instrument cluster or more likely the sending unit has gone bad. The sending unit is located in the tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly. It is a fairy intensive job. A normal shop will charge around 600-700 dollars to fix this. It may be easier to reset the mileage counter every time you fill up and then always fill up before the 250 mile marker. I hope this helps!

Fule guge


HI, you will need to replace the sending unit that is located inside the tank. this unit is part of the fuel pump assembly and it sends the level of the fuel to the gauge, via wire transfer. there is a floater that is attached to the pump assembly, and it is damaged. replacing this sending unit will fix this issue.

Fuel gauge not working


yea fords with two tanks are known for getting stuck if you dont switch the tank constantly. you have to get to the valve that switches the two tanks, and free it up. it definitley isnt anything but the valve.

Gas gauge problems with 2004 Buick Rendezvous


No, there is not a fuse for this. Unfortunately, you have a bad sending unit. In order to replace the sending unit you have to drop the gas tank. Sooo............drive it more to get rid of all of that gas and it will be easier to put back up.
please remember to rate this solution.
