It's either the gauge or the sending unit in the tank. I would wager that the sending unit is bad in the tank, or the wires leading to it.

It's possible the fuel gauge itself is bad, but try the fuel tank first.

You'll have to drop the fuel tank to access the sending unit.

What would cause the fuel gauge to stop working


It's possible the guage has died, or your fuel level sender has died, or become stuck. You could check the connection on the back of the guages.

GAS GAGE WANT STOP READING EMPTY WHEN GAS IS IN IT


To confirm if the fault is with the Rheostat float within the fuel tank or the fuel guage in the dashbboard, you can remove the wiring to the fuel tank float. If the guage reading changes- to full- then the guage is good and the fault can be a jammed rheostat which can be removed from the tank and replaced after draining the tank. The guage can be tested on the outside with a ground wiring to the plate of the fittings and as the float is moved the guage must show a change in reading. if not the voltage must be measured to confirm the working of the guage.

Fuel gauge stoped working and the low fuel light stay on


The guage stopped working, because a code set , possibly due to a faulty fuel sending unit, or a wiring issue. This would neeed to be scan tested for the current code. After repair is made, and the code is cleared, the guage will work again. Thanks...

the fuel guage will only be accurate on level ground,, when you stop or go around the corner the fuel sloshes around in to tank causing the level at the float to change,, thus the guage reads different
