The fuel sender inside the tank, or the wiring tank to gauge, or the gauge. Have you checked the fuses? With a full tank you should be getting 12 volts on the gauge circuit, check at the tank and then in small intervals along the wire towards the gauge, You could try jumping 12 volts to the gauge power wire to see if the gauge works.

Volvo 960 gle estate self leveling suspenstion 1995 model. car lying low onto wheel arch when not loaded


IF self leveling (gas struts) are faulty,when you come to a stop after driving for about 10 mins,the rear will not have risen to level.(still low).then they will need replacements fitted,they are not that expensive,compared to some air suspension types.(just in case im not clear,the rear pumps itself up AFTER moving off/driving and will settle when stopped for awhile after.)

Volvo S80 gauge indicates no or low fuel even when tank is half full.


The most likely culprit is a faulty Fuel Level Sending Unit (sends fuel level from tank to dash gauge). It may be stuck, or beyond repair and in need of replacement. Dealing with electronics in your tank can be tricky and should be dealt with by a professional.

Good luck!

Gas gauge jumps from empty to what ever the tank is filled at .some time it shows half full etc then just drops to empty, then after a few minutes driving it goes back to a level.


I own two 1993 960s and on one the gas gauge sits on 0 until I thump (hard) the plastic lens in front of the gauage in the instrument panel. It is most certainly due to a cold solder or cracked solder joint. Can be a corroided contact.

Thump the gas gauge arrow like I do when it is registering 0. If it does not move then it is the sender in the tank that has a flat spot.

1. Check the Fuel Pressure Regulator. No sign of fuel should exist when the vacuum hose is pull out.
2. Check the relay (one by the side of dashboard and one in the fuse box engine bay) for the fuel pump and the injection system.
