Foe some reason, that is a common complaint, my daughter's fuel gauge doesn't work, and I have yet to tear into the tank to fix it. But I think it accessible through the trunk floor. Pull out the gauge and replace it. Hope this helps.

Trace the wire for the fuel gauge. the connection could be bad, or you may need to replace the sending unit. there is a float and it measures the resistance. you can check that which requires removing the tank, and see on an ohm meter when you lift up and down the float the numbers change on the meter. if it does then its a wiring issue

Unplug the fuel pump, turn on the ignition and see if it goes to empty. Is this a 4 or 2 door blazer? If it is a 4 door this will be easy.

2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.


It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.
