It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit in the fuel tank has gone open circuit and needs replacing.

    I have a 2010 Nissan Altima and the fuel gauge is not reading the amount of fuel in the car. The gauge is always on 'E'. I had it scanned by the computer and it said that it was the cluster...Could it be the fuse in the passenger fuse box?

Have a '92 4runner gas gauge has stopped working properly how does the system work?


It could either be a bad circuit board that controls the gas gauge, or the float in the fuel tank that is connected to the fuel pump has a crack in it and is full of gas so it just sits at near its lowest point.

Gas Gage always reads empty how to fix


This problem is caused by a defective gas gauge fuel level sending unit inside the gas tank. You will need to remove the gas tank and replace the sending unit for the gauge.

96 Dodge Ram Gas Gauge always on empty


The fuel pump and the sensor is altogether as one assembly. So if you buy the pump you would also be buying the sensor. Just for your information the pump is located in the gas tank under the bed, so you have two ways to change it. One is take the bed off (which is a lot easier if you have a full gas tank). But if its empty than use a jack to lower the tank down from underneath the truck. I hope this helps.
