The fuel tank has to be dropped and the float has to be replaced, so your looking in the ballpark of about 300.00

Why does the gas gage just stop wrking


you need to check for a broken fuse and replace, make sure the wiring that links your gauge to the tank is not broken. if all this is well you might need an expert to check the system for you. good luck.

Usually you will have a bad ground or a bad fuel level float which are with the pump located in the tank, if your not capable of major repair I suggest you find a repair shop. Part $100 but labor could be up to $500

Gas gage and speedometer not working


You should start with you fuse block itself. For that many different things to be not working the one thing they have in common is the fuse box. if the fuses are good you may have a faulty fuse box itself. Use a voltmeter and test the slots to the fuses for each electrical item. If you dont have voltage going to your fuses then the box needs replacing. If you do then either fuses need replacing or damaged or broken wiring.

1996 chevy cavalier gas gauge stopped working. could it be a fuse???


One fuse operates all the gages, so no the fuse is not the problem, the problem is that the gas gage sending unit (a variable resistor) that senses the level of fuel in the gas tank is defective and needs to be replaced, this is the most common problem with any fuel gage problem

Similar to mezouii, my jeep grand cherokee laredo runs out of gas quite often and sooner than it should. the gas gage is broken but i time the mileage after i gas up and i should be able to go twice as far...


sounds like somone has a garden hose in your tank personaly i would check the fuel tank ground
it is likely the reason your gage doesnt work
once gage works you can properly monitor fuel use

Fuel Guage problem


Most of the time the gauge unit in the tank goes bad but turning the key on and off won't make any difference. Near the tank there is a multi wire electrical connector, With it unplugged and the key on probing the wires to the front of the truck with a test light one of the wires will light in a slow blinking, This is the gas gauge. with the light blinking the gauge should read something. un plugged should read empty and cross the light to ground it should read full. If the light doesnt come on your on the way back to the dash the wire could be in troble anywhere. repairs for other things are ussally the cause. If the test light check worked then the sending unit in the tank is bad and it will need to be replaced. Repairing them doesn't seem to stay fixed. A gas theif may have run into it with a hose and they can't take much banging around. The fuel gage and fuses are next. The temperture gauge works on the same power if it works OK the power is good. Then its the gage or the wire the is a voltage limiter card in a slot next to the gage in the cluster . The dealer can order a new one when you call them with the VIN and tell them you want the fuel gauge limiter module. If you have the skills to remove the cluster and see the module 1 in. X 2 in. flat electrical card. It has a part # on it and the dealer can verify that your looking at the right part. the gages seldom fail unless their submerised in water. Har driving can sometines loosen the connections to the cluster and redoing them and turning it on again, may correct thr problem. do this with the card and the gage too before you but anything, check the wire from the gage module maks it all the way to the gas tank with a jumper wire and a test light as the wire being broken somethere is most common.
