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.

Gas gauge is not reading correctly. Shows a full


the problem is caused by a defective gas gauge sending unit, this part is located inside the gas tank, you must remove the gas tank to replace it.

When the gas tank is full the gas gauge shows as empty. When the gas tank is empty the gas gauge shows as full.


Well that tells me that someone installed the wrong fuel level sensor. Your going to have to drop the tank and pull the pump and float assymbly out. Then go to a parts store and get a sending unit that has the opposite resistance of that sending unit. Just wait until the tank is empty so its a lot lighter. You can call the parts store or go down and see if there is multiple sending units. The sending units work by resistance, when the tank is full the float moves up and turns a wheel in the sending unit, which either removes or increases the resistance causing the gauge to lower. The sending units either give full resistance at full or no resistance at full and then changes as the level goes down until it does the opposite at empty.
