Question about Buick Rendezvous

1 Answer

My gas gauge stays on Empty when the car is off and when you turn it on it goes to Full and stays there. Sometimes it will move around very fast. So the only way to know if your out of gas almost is to wait for the low fuel ligh to come on. What do i need to do to get the gas gauge to work properly again?

My gas hand is going a little crazy, it will go to full and stay a while then move to empty, and I just put a new fuel pump and sender in it, what should I do now ?


I can only think of two possibilities:
1) The Ground Wire (goes from the sending unit in the fuel tank to the frame of the car) is not getting a good connection or
2) The fuel gauge in the dashboard is bad.

If your description means that the change in the gas gauge is random then check the ground wire. If you have a volt-ohm meter, try checking the resistance from the wire where it attaches to the sending unit, negative side. Remove wire from sending unit first. Make sure negative wire on V_O meter is connected to frame of car. Reading should be almost zero. Anything else and the wire you are testing does not have a good connection.
If your description means that you turn the car on and the gas gauge is reading full for awhile and then goes to empty, the gas gauge is bad.

If my gas gauge doesnt work can it just be a fuse


Doubt it.
The same fuse for the gauge would handle the rest of the cluster.
Probably the sending unit in the tank.

All other gauges work on the hyundai but the fuel gauge wont work shows empty all the time how can i fix this problem


Turn the ignition on and off several times before inspecting the gas tank because a blown fuse is the usual cause for fuel gauge malfunctioning. If the gauge remains motionless, check your fuse box and determine the fuse's location using your service manual.
Replace the fuse if the link is broken or damaged. Then, inspect the gauge's wire connections for cleanliness and make sure the wires are connected.
Turn the ignition switch to the "off" position. Attach one end of a jumper cable to the fuel-gauge terminal behind the gauge itself. Attach the other end to the ignition terminal.
Replace the sender unit in the gas tank if the gauge reads full and your car does not have a full tank. Replace the fuel gauge if the needle remains inoperative.
