What cases this is a bad signal from your sening unit in the gas tank. Before you go out tearing that apart check the wire harness from the tank to the frame. The wire's may have a break in it and Good luck

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump shutoff switch located on a 1996 chevy silverado 1500 located

Should be on the passenger side kickplate below the glovebox and to the right. You may have to remove the plastic panel to access it or look for a small hole in it and feel around for the button

SOURCE: 2001 chevy silverado,low fuel light on w/full tank

My 2001 Silverado with 113,000 mi has the same problem. I was told that with the fuel formula change in last few years it has affected vehicles 2002 or 2003 and older because it has corroded the metal that the float moves on. Mine will at times start working when it's 3/4 or less gas in the tank. My solution is to reset the trip od at every fill up. I get approx 450 mi on a tank but refill at 400 to be on the safe side.

This answer I got makes sense to me, but who knows.

all you need to do is listen to hear the tank switching valve is working. It will make a soft noise under the rear cab section with the key on with the engine off. zif you do hear it sounding the switch your tank unit for that one tank you try to switch to is a fault. Sorry no illustrated diagrams are on hand, just knowledge

I have a 1986 454 C30 silverado dual fuel tanks . my fuel pump is split so got a new but the new 1 only has one 3/8 in port , and the old has two a 3/8 and 1/4 , is the 1/4 one a return line


Short answer, yes. It is to reduce the chances of a vapor lock forming by returning vapor and hot fuel back to the tank and keeping cool fuel circulating through the pump.

I own a 2003 chevy silverado diesel dullay 4x4 and none of the controls work for the passenger side window, I need a wiring diagram.


Hi I have a 4x4 2003 chevy 3500 silverado dually with dual tanks
rear tank stoped pumping into front tank and was full . I siphoned the fuel out of rear tank and fuel gauge reads 9/16 full . is there a way to reset the fuel sending units so they can calculate the fuel readings. I always filled the two tanks with the same amount of fuel
until now ? I'm thinking there is a inkine fuel pump
