Why won't none of my dash gauges work? The gas gauge needle goes all the way past full and the rest of the gauges do the same and don't read correct

If they are electrical gauges i would start checking wires for grounding spots or worn spots for shorts.if they are mechanical then i would start checking for correct pressures.

2008 jaguar s series gas gage quit working


probably not all that difficult to fix it you have patience. The needle going way past full is an indication of a short before the sender unit or in the sender unit. Pull the power wire from the sender unit and see what the gauge does. IT should stay on the empty mark. IT may be just a fuel sender unit .

1989 silverado gas gauge shows full even when cluster removed from dash.


The sending unit in the tank provides a ground to the gauge depending on the float level. The gauge can "rest" anywhere if the power and ground circuits are not connected.
You would need to know if the gauge has power and is getting a ground signal from the tank.

Fuel gauge reads past full all the time


when the tank is full the resistance is low so the power through the gage make is read full
as the tank empties , the resistance increases so the less current means the gauge reads less until empty there is little or no power , the gauge reads empty
simple check , turn the ignition off, no power , no gauge reading

Gas gauge wont go past half it stops at half and will go to empty but never past half


There is a fuel gauge sensor in your fuel tank. If the sensor is out of place, it will not read the amount of gas in your tank correctly if it is out of place. This is a fixable job, but I recommend a ceritfied mechanic. Hope this helps! Please give 4 thumbs up!
