Audi A6 2005 2.0 TDI Fuel Gauge Fault

My Audi A6 2005 2.0 TDI fuel gauge developed a fault the other day. it was on half a tank the day before. When I started the car it did not move from empty. After filling the tank to ensure what was in the tank (about half) the gauge gradually moved up towards the full mark over 30 minutes or so. Please advise what could have caused the fault. I am now keeping my eyes on my mileage and don't trust the gauge just in case.

SOURCE: Fuel gauge shows empty

The electrician could be right, I too am an electrician, and my best guess for this is the wireing, make sure all wires leading to and from are in tip top shape. Any electrician can do this, Kragen does it for free I think, and Auto Zone might do it too. But it could be a ground wire, i had a similar situation but it was with my fuel pump. ground wire was worn and lost continuity.

SOURCE: Audi A4 1998 water leakage from centre of the underside of the car

OK more information is needed on the leak.
EXACTLY where do you see it? Inside or out side? What color is it? Dose it have an smell to it?

Now on the light, What light or symbol is lit, get a photo if needed?

A leak in the center of an Audi is generally the AC condensation drain so this is why I need more information. The 2 may be not related.

What causes the fuel gauge to read only half tank


My friend on your attempt to renew the fuel pump which actually is connected with the fuel gauge you either damage the leveling gauge either by bending it or scratched it to a place where the gauge shows half tank. It is better to remove again and very slowly and carefully check for any slight faults.
Good Luck.

Have the speed sensor checked, that's mounted on the side of the tranny, that operates the speedometer. As far as the fuel gauge, probably the fuel sending unit is shot which is in the gas tank.

Fuel gauge


Check the connections to the fuel sender are in good order, not loose, wet or corroded.
Check the fuel sender is properly grounded.
If no fault found as above, a new sender may be required.

You have a fuel gauge sending unit problem, the gauge is not the problem, the sending unit is in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank to replace it.
