If your pump and gauge aren't working, you have an electrical issue. Hopefully just a fuse, but if not, there's a short in the wiring. Check the blocks and get back to me.

Gas gage not working


Maybe a problem with instrument cluster?
Usually the circuit works off resistance to ground. The sending unit in gas tank provides resistance to ground. The signal wire for fuel gage is a purple wire, if goes to fuel pump wiring connector. With key on, use digital multimeter, check for voltage. If no voltage, either problem with wiring circuit or instrument cluster. W/0 looking at instrument cluster, I don't know if you can replace gage itself w/o replacing instrument cluster?

If voltage on the purple wire, ground it, while a helper watches the gage, if the gage starts reacting, then check the grounds for fuel pump wiring connector, if that checks ok, suspect the fuel pump sending unit has a problem.

Gas gage is not working rite


The most common cause of a erratic or incorrect fuel gage reading is a defective fuel gage sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace the sending unit requires that the fuel tank be removed from the car and then the fuel pump module which contains the sender be replaced.

Fuel guage not working


Testing the fuel gage requires accessing the harness from the fuel pump and grounding the yellow / white wire with 160 ohms resistance this should cause the gage to read full, and with the circuit open you should have the gage reading empty. If the gage works in this order then the likely failure is the sending unit in the tank , and will require replacement.

Re fuel gage.


the fuel tank sending unit is defective in your van, this has nothing to do with the fuel pump going out, this was a 100% incorrect statement by the shop that said this, but do understand that if you pull the fuel tank to repair the defective sender for the gas guage u might as well replace the fuel pump which also is in the fuel tank, they (the pump) are are getting worn out at about the miles you have on this car.
