You more than likely have a bad ignition switch.The wire that powers all these things comes from the ignition switch.The switch is bad internally and you will need to replace it.This should take care of your problems.Hope this helps.Good luck.

ABS, ASC, Handbrake, Airbag lights lit on dash, speedometer now working and fuel gauge playing silly beggars too


The abs,Asc,Handbrake all this is related to most likely a sensor that has gone out is not functioning properly. I would not drive this myself, especially with the air bag light on as if computer is throwing these signals out, you do not want to take the chance of air bag accidentally going off. Most this I am sure can be fixed at dealer. They will hook up there fancy equipment diagnostic machine, and reset the computer. Worst case is there might be a sensor that has to be replaced. This could be also a short in wire harness. Bottom line take it in and have them hook up to machine. This will pin point problem, because next step would be car could automatically shut down.

My 2005 Impala Gas Guage is showing full all the way to the right. It doesn't move even when the gas is all gone.


It could be a defective sending unit inside the tank, a defective fuel gauge/instrument cluster, or the MOST LIKELY cause would be a fuel gauge sending unit circuit that is shorted to ground.
The instrument cluster can be easilly diagnosed or eliminated as a possibility by connecting a scanner and accessing the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) and commanding the fuel gauge up and down with the computer. Also the IPC and/or Body Control module can be checked for fault codes that may lead to the cause of the problem. If the "Service Engine Soon" or "Service Vehicle Soon" light is on, you can BET that there are fault codes present. There also may be fault codes present that will not cause these lights to be illuminated. To be honest, a thorough scan of your entire onboard computer network is where I would BEGIN diagnosis.

P.S. I did do a search for Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) related to your description of the problem and found none. This is not a common problem. (No published "quick-fixes")

P0463 - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit High Input
An excessively high voltage is sent from the sensor is sent to ECM.

The fuel level sensor is mounted in the fuel level sensor unit. The sensor detects a fuel level in the fuel tank and transmits a signal to the ECM or PCM.

It consists of two parts, one is mechanical float and the other side is variable resistor. Fuel level sensor output voltage changes depending on the movement of the fuel mechanical float.


Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
- Fuel level sersor circuit harness or connectors is open or shorted
- Fuel level sensor may be faulty

Possible solution
Replaced fuel level sensor.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

your car has a fuel level sensor on the fuel pump which is in the gas tank that is going bad this makes your engine light come on also makes your gas gauge read faulty, I think you can buy the fuel level sensor seperate from the fuel pump but i am not for sure my wifes car does the same thing i just havent got around to fixing it yet but when i do i will repost and et you know.

Fuel gauge is reading empty, and the low fuel light is on. My tank is full. Where should I start looking?


the fuel level sensor in your fuel pump has gone bad. it is intergral to the entire sending unit assembly (fuel pump), and is located inside the gas tank. you must lower the gas tank to gain access. good luck!

the eec is the sensor for the evap system, either the gas cap is leakin or one of the hoses, the system is made to keep the gas tank at minus 1 lbs pressure, anything that disrupts this will send a message, could also be the fuel tank itself

The fuel level sensor is at fault and is setting the service engine soon light on. Your local Nissan dealer can repair this under warranty depending on your mileage. The fuel tank will need to be removed to access the sending unit.
