I would guess that your sending unit from the tank is grounding out which means it need to be replaced in most cases. If the gauge is bad, it will usually effect the other readings in the cluster.

Fuel gauge reads past full all the time


when the tank is full the resistance is low so the power through the gage make is read full
as the tank empties , the resistance increases so the less current means the gauge reads less until empty there is little or no power , the gauge reads empty
simple check , turn the ignition off, no power , no gauge reading

My 97 S-10 Blazer fuel guage wont work


Likely, it's the sender unit in the tank. To check wiring and your dash gauge, you can pull apart the connector at the fuel tank, find the wire for the gauge sender unit (its color coded-I dont kinow what the one for your car would be), and on the harness side(the one going to front of vehicle) use a jumper wire and ground that wire to the car frame(get me? you want to ground the wire going to your dash gauge)-with key on, your gauge working properly will move up to half-way or even full. That tells you your dash gauge is working and your wiring to gauge is good. If gauge doesn't move when grounded(double check for a good ground), then your dash gauge may be bad.

Faulty fuel guage 1997 blazer reads past full


This could be one of two problems:one could be that the magnetized gauge flipped all the way around, you will need to take a paper clip or a thin piece of wire and stick it through the hole for the trip meter reset button(its tricky) and flip the gauge needle back around to fix it. The second reason could be that the fuel tank sending unit could be faulty and needs to be replaced. this is located inside the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly.

Fuel guage was erratic then went past full mechanic installed a new pump and sending unit now it stayed at 1/4 tank and when I filled it itwent below empty. bad sending unit or bad guage or bad mechanic?


Test the gauge by using a test light ,and grounding the test light clip to a good known ground,then touch the pink wire on the connector harness going to the tank,with the connector unplugged,and key on,the gauge will move slowly to the empty mark,and lower ,then remove the test light and it will go past full,if it does this,it is a good gauge,and the sending unit,was put in wrong,or the part was bad.

1997 blazer fuel gauge doesnt work i put a new fuel pump in and it still didnt work.... its pegged at full


Unplug the fuel pump, turn on the ignition and see if it goes to empty. Is this a 4 or 2 door blazer? If it is a 4 door this will be easy.

2 problems.1997 Chevy blazer, OBD2 and fuel gauge wont read


Problem number one. The circuit that powers up your data link connector (where you plug the code reader into) is the cigarette lighter fuse. Check that fuse to make sure it is not blown. Second problem: You more than likely need to replace your instrument panel cluster.
