Fuel sending unit in the gas tank is defective. Might have to drop the tank to replace it. Sometimes you can get to it by removing the back seat or through the trunk at the back seats. Not all cars have this feature.

Low fuel light on gauge doesnt work


lamp burned out, ?
but does the fuel guage work 100%
and at what tank level do you expect the lamp to come on.?
did you read the FSM on this, its covered
or alldata.com?
free.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

on this car, the PCM reads the fuel level then sets the fuel guage
and if the level (voltage from tank sender) is below a specific
voltage , it glows the lamp, low fuel
so if the fuel guage works, and the lamp is dead, the lamp is burned out. (or conn. bad to it)

Gas guage needle works sometimes other times the guage will read far pst the full mark


You more than likely have a bad fuel level sensor.You should be able to replace just the level sensor without replacing the complete fuel pump module.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Does a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer have a fuel censor?


Hi, The 1999 blazer has a fuel level sensor mounted in the fuel tank. It is mounted to the module that contains the electric fuel pump. The tank must be removed in order to service this module assy. When the level sensor is faulty, it can cause the guage to read erratic, or incorrect. If the computer senses a fault with the sensor, the check engine light can come on, and the fuel guage can drop to empty. A code can set for the fuel level, and this sensor can be replaced seperate. Good luck... Coop

On a 95 chevy truck. the fuel guage goes to E with any motion like turns stops . Had sending unit in tank replaced . No change in problem...


the fuel guage will only be accurate on level ground,, when you stop or go around the corner the fuel sloshes around in to tank causing the level at the float to change,, thus the guage reads different

Gas Gauge not reading correctly


The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.

Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas


The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.

Fuel guage reads 1/4 at all times even when full. How do I repair


1.If the needle on the guage is stuck. you can try tapping the guage to see if the needle moves or turn the ignition on and off a few times to see if you can get it to move. If the guage drops to empty when you turn off the ignition you know that its not the guage. (note that the guage does not drop to zero when ignition is off with all cars of this age).

2. The problem could be with the sensor in the fuel tank itself. Rocking the vehicle up and down from the rear (you will need help doing this) may free the sensor level indicator ball in the tank.
