My 2003 Navigator fuel gauge is all over the place. All other gauges are fine. Any ideas why? Also, the red light for my gears is also out, whether I'm in park, neutral, or drive, the red light is...

First I suggest, in fuel tank, located the fuel sending unit and...
  1. Check connector at fuel tank for poor connection or signs of corrosion.
  2. Check all fuses in system.
  3. Verify ground circuit at fuel level connector.

If aparently this its ok, them there is a sensor in the fuel tank that goes bad, when it does it can give you a erratic readings. The fuel level sensor is mounted to the fuel pump but can be replaced by itself.

Fuel Level Sensor Replacement - Removal Procedure

Important: Always maintain cleanliness when servicing fuel system components.


Fuel Sender Assembly Replacement
Removal Procedure

Caution: Fuel Vapors can collect while servicing fuel system parts in enclosed areas such as a trunk. To reduce the risk of fire and increased exposure to vapors:
• Use forced air ventilation such as a fan set outside of the trunk.
• Plug or cap any fuel system openings in order to reduce fuel vapor formation.
• Clean up any spilled fuel immediately.
• Avoid sparks and any source of ignition.
• Use signs to alert others in the work area that fuel system work is in process.

Notice: Clean all of the following areas before performing any disconnections in order to avoid possible contamination in the system:
• The fuel pipe connections
• The hose connections
• The areas surrounding the connections

Important: Always maintain cleanliness when servicing fuel system components.

Remove the fuel tank. Refer to Fuel Tank Replacement .
Disconnect the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor electrical connector.
Remove the fuel tank pressure sensor.
Disconnect the fuel sender electrical connector.
Clean the fuel pipes, and fuel sender assembly to prevent possible fuel contamination during removal.
Disconnect the quick-connect fittings at the fuel sender assembly. Refer to Plastic Collar Quick Connect Fitting Service .


Important: The retaining fuel sender assembly will spring-up when the ring is removed.
Use a breaker bar to unlock the fuel sender lock ring. Hold down the fuel sender and remove the fuel sender retaining ring.
Remove the fuel sender assembly.
Remove and discard the fuel sender seal.
Clean the fuel sender assembly sealing surfaces.
Inspect the fuel sender assembly sealing surfaces.zjlimited_527.gif

Keep in mind that the sensor runs around $120 at the dealership, labor is about $300 depending on the labor cost per hour where you have it replaced at.

Hope this helps.

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working

There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options

Low fuel message and fuel gage reads empity

If you still have the original fuel pump and sender, you're looking at a bad sender. As it's in the gas tank attached to the fuel pump, it's best to replace both at the same time, as they typically are sold as an assembly. The pumps are good for about 100,000-150,000 mi, the senders are good (on the original) are good for about 80,000 before they start giving problems. Bottom line, your sender needs replaced, whether you do it with or without the fuel pump.

Starts runs realy rough then dies put new fuel

It sounds like you already solved your problem. Attach fuel gauge to fuel rail pressure line and monitor for fuel pressur (above 30 p.s.i. @ crank). If pressure low suspect pump. If pressure o.k. but dies out and pressure drops but restarts, check oil sending switch as this controls fuel pump. Computer primes pump for start, then oil sender powers up pump for normal operation. Check for oil leaking at terminals on sender. Also check plug connector at fuel sender on tank as they are known to melt and fail. If fuel not problem, check for spark as ignition module failure is common. Have obd2 diagnostic run to check for codes as this may help with diagnosis.

Fuel pump not staying on 1993 k1500 350

Some GM products also incorporate the oil sender switch into that circuit for fuel pump, so that in case of an accident, engine shuts off, oil pressure drops, in turn, shuts off power to fuel pump. May be worth a look at what your getting for oil pressure, as well as checking switch/sender.
