2000 Ford Excursion V10 gas. first, fuel gauge read zero on a full tank. drove 5 miles and stopped for 20 mins. would not restart. fuse OK replacedpump relay. inertia fuel shut off switch OK.


Not much point replacing the fuel pump until the supply and ground has been checked and found to be ok.
Gauge sender might share the same ground...

If the fuel gauge sender and fuel pump share the same space, replacing the pump provides the ideal opportunity to test the gauge unit with an analogue ohm meter.

Gas tank will not fill up on 2001 ford expedition


Gas as in gasoline or gas as in LPG gas? If its petrol, the fuel sender may be out of adjustment. (Usually means a new sender) If its LPG, the fuel stations are set to automatically shut off at 80% full. The gas tank will never actually be full to the brim but the gauge should be showing full if the gas nozzle keeps shutting off. Have a look on the LPG tank itself, they have a little gauge on them which shows how full it is. I have 2 tanks on my car , when "full" or when the pump shuts down, the tank gauges show just under full but the gauge on the cars dash shows full (2005 BA Ford)

Gas gauge says full but car runs out of gas just below full


This is one of two things, it could be the fuel level sender or a bad fuel gauge, a bad gauge would mean replacing the cluster,
I would run gas low and drop the tank, remove the fuel assm, the sender is the part that holds the pump, i will enclose a picture to show you.This being a 1996 Bonneville i would bet its the sender in the tank.i would change the fuel pump while you have the tank down. Also check wiring and connector as some of these pumps will tell you to replace the wiring and connector, this is supplied with the new pump.If you are replacing the pump also then replace the fuel filter.\The only problem is make sure you spray the line to the sender on the top side of tank and let soak. this is if there are rusted. in my area they are rusted on these older cars. good day. have enclosed the picture of the fuel pump and the sending unit . hope this is helpful.4_15_2012_10_34_13_pm.jpg4_15_2012_10_34_39_pm.jpg4_15_2012_10_34_53_pm.jpg

Electronic gas gauge Gives wrong reading, after replacing fuel pump and floater.


instrument cluster is just for monitoring. but on modern cars there can be integrated circuits to calculate the actual amount of fuel inside tank. so sender sends signals and dashboard decodes it and show the amount on gauge.

which car do you have? if it is a later model with such system you may need to reset related software to match with new sender unit on pump or floater. (dealer can do this for you)

for example if you have a new daylight driving lights(LKM) controller on new BMW's if you replace it with a new one you need to code it to match with your car. if not it wont operate correctly.,

But there is an exeption. when sockets are broken or connections are wrong, fuel and temp gauges act erratic. they jump, pulsate or dont work at all. before replacing anything more be sure that sender unit or whole asembly is the correct part for your car. second be sure that connection has been done correctly.

Fuel gauge on my 1997 ford ranger not working


It is either the gauge and you need to look around for another used instrument cluster, or it is the fuel level sender and you need to think about dropping the tank and replacing the sender and the fuel pump. Go with new parts inside the tank, you will not be able to find a new instrument cluster and if you did it would cost more than the truck is worth.

Just bought a one owner 1991 Saturn SC - great condition. Need assistance with problem - fuel guage only goes down to 1/2 tank and then car is out of gas. If we put 6.5 gal of gas in, guage is back to full...


Well I would think that the tank's sender unit, or the gauge is bad. As the tank has to be dropped to get at the sender, your easiest bet is the gauge. Look on ebay, most likely have to get the whole cluster, for a few bucks. Look on youtube for instructions about getting the cluster out.

If you are a real geek, you could find the sender's resistance values, find a similar variable resistor at radio shack and use that to fool the gauge. See if the gauge sweeps across the whole range of its motion. If the gauge works fine then it is drop the tank time, get a new fuel pump while you are in there on a car that old. You could well find that someone else has beaten you to the new pump and reinstalled it with something wrong with the range of motion on the sensor.

Gas gage show full all the time


it could be the cluster. but first find out if the pump and the sender unit is one. you may have not disconnected the right plug if you did disconnect the right plug your instrument cluster could be bad

Trying to locate electrical junction to test fuel level sensor


Fuel Level Indication System The fuel level indication system is a magnetic gauge system. It consists of a magnetic fuel gauge (9280) mounted in the instrument cluster (10849) and a sending unit located in the fuel tank (9002) with an instrument cluster gauge amplifier (10E849) in series between the two. No instrument voltage regulator is used with this system. Fuel Gauge
The magnetic gauge movement consists of three primary coils, one of which is wound at a 90-degree angle to the other two. The coils form a magnetic field which varies in direction according to the variable resistance of the sender unit which is connected between two of them. A primary magnet, to which a shaft and pointer are attached, rotates to align to this primary field, resulting in pointer position. The bobbin/coil assembly is pressed into a metal housing which has two holes for dial mounting. There is no adjustment, calibration or maintenance required for these gauges. The instrument cluster amplifier is calibrated to the fuel gauge. The instrument cluster amplifier and fuel gauge must be replaced as a system. Instrument Cluster Gauge Amplifier/Check Gauge Module
The instrument cluster gauge amplifier electrically averages fuel sender readings so the fuel gauge displays actual fuel level and not fluctuations due to sloshing in fuel tank. The instrument cluster gauge amplifier is a small printed circuit board which latches into a pocket on the back of the instrument cluster. The electrical connections for ignition, ground, input from fuel sender and output to fuel gauge are made through a spring-type connector on the instrument cluster gauge amplifier to the instrument cluster printed circuit (10K843) on the instrument cluster. There are no provisions for calibration or adjustment of the instrument cluster gauge amplifier.
Fuel Sending Unit
The fuel sending unit consists of a variable screened resistor made up of a ceramic substrate. It is controlled by the action of an attached float in the fuel tank. When the fuel level is low, resistance in the sending unit is low. When the fuel level is high, the resistance in the sending unit is high. As the float moves from empty to full, the resistance will gradually and continuously increase. f9e3b50.gif

Fuel gauge reads E when first started, jumps to F after awhile


It is more likely to be the fuel guage sender which is faulty.

Fuel gauge not working all the time.


This is a normal concern.
The instrument cluster uses 4 different operating modes to calculate the fuel level:
Anti-slosh (default mode)
Key OFF fueling
Key ON fueling
Recovery
After a fuel fill up, the time for the fuel gauge to move from empty (E) to full (F) ranges from 2 seconds to 55 minutes depending on which operating mode the fuel gauge is in.
The default fuel gauge mode is called the anti-slosh mode. To prevent fuel gauge changes from fuel slosh (gauge instability due to changes in fuel sender readings caused by fuel moving around in the tank), the fuel gauge takes approximately 55 minutes to go from empty (E) to full (F).
The key OFF fueling mode (2 seconds to read empty [E] to full [F]) requires 3 conditions be met:
The key must be in the OFF position throughout the entire refueling of the vehicle.
At least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity must be added to the fuel tank.
The instrument cluster must receive a valid key ON fuel sender reading within 1 second of the key being put into the RUN position. The key ON sample readings are considered valid if the fuel sender reading is between 15 ohms ± 2 ohms and 160 ohms ± 4 ohms.
If these conditions are not met, the fuel gauge stays in the anti-slosh mode, which results in a slow to read full (F) event.
The key ON fueling mode (approximately 90 seconds to read empty [E] to full [F]) requires 3 conditions be met:
The transmission is in PARK (P).
The key is in the RUN position.
At least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity must be added to the fuel tank.
In key ON fueling mode, a 30-second timer activates after the transmission is put into the PARK (P) position (automatic transmissions). When the 30-second time has elapsed and at least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity has been added, the fuel gauge response time is 90 seconds to read from empty (E) to full (F). When the transmission is shifted out of PARK (P), the fuel gauge strategy reverts to the anti-slosh mode. The key on refueling mode prevents slow to read full events from happening if the customer refuels the vehicle with the key in the RUN position.
Recovery mode is incorporated into the instrument cluster strategy to recover from a missing fuel level input during a refueling event. Missing fuel level inputs result from intermittent opens in the fuel sender or its circuits. Recovery mode (empty [E] to full [F] approximately 20 minutes) is initiated when the following 2 conditions are met:
The instrument cluster is in the anti-slosh (default) mode.
The actual fuel level in the tank is greater than what is being displayed by the fuel gauge
