Similar to above. Loosen the screw holding the dash panel and insert a paper clip or screwdriver to lift needle over rest bar.

You have a fuel gauge sending unit problem, the gauge is not the problem, the sending unit is in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank to replace it.

Fuel indicator needle doesn't move to fuel level


Most likely its the sending unit in the fuel tank. Your sending unit is probably one unit with the fuel pump. Very rarely is it the gauge in the dash. Your local friendly mechanic can take care of that for you.

My 95 jeep grand cherokee limited is shutting down while driving suddenly. It looks like it happends after more than 30 min driving or when it runs in the same speed for several min. Any one have any idea...


SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
Symptoms may include no start, rough idle, long crank times, driveway die outs or erratic fuel pressure. A new fuel pump has been released which delivers improved performance. This pump should be used whenever fuel pump failures are encountered.
DIAGNOSIS:
Basic fuel system diagnostics should be used as outlined in the appropriate service manual. A brief recap of the basic diagnostics follows:
Fuel pressure specification - 49 psi - plus or minus 5 psi.
High fuel pressure indicates problems with the fuel pressure regulator. Refer to the service manual for regulator diagnosis. Do not replace the fuel pump for high pressure.
Low fuel pressure - Low pressure could indicate a pump problem or it could indicate a plugged fuel filter or restricted fuel line or no fuel in the tank. Be sure to check these items before replacing the fuel pump.
Fuel System Leak down - When checking fuel pressure be sure to check the integrity of the system after shut down. With the fuel pressure gauge connected, shut the engine off and observe the pressure gauge. The system should maintain at least 24 psi for five minutes after shut down. If the pressure bleeds off quicker, it could indicate that an injector is leaking down or that the pressure regulator is leaking. This can lead to driveablity problems and require further diagnosis.
NOTE: IN RARE CASES WHERE MULTIPLE FUEL PUMP FAILURES HAVE OCCURRED ON THE SAME VEHICLE, A BUILD UP OF RESIDUE MAY HAVE ACCUMULATED ON THE INSIDE OF THE FUEL TANK. THE PRESENCE OF THIS RESIDUE IS NOT EASILY IDENTIFIABLE. THE RESIDUE CAN PASS THROUGH THE IN TANK FILTER AND CONTAMINATED THE PUMP ROTOR. IF MULTIPLE FAILURES HAVE OCCURRED WITH NO OBVIOUS INDICATION OF THE CAUSE, CONSIDERATION SHOULD BE MADE TO REPLACING THE FUEL TANK TO AVOID FUTURE PROBLEMS. PARTS REQUIRED:
I would start here and look at your fuel system closely

I have a 2001 gmc sonoma. my odometer, gas gauge, and temp. gauge stopped working. i checked the fuses for the instrument panel cluster, but they were fine. where do i go from here?


The stepper motors go bad. Did you notice any needle vibrations before the failure. Could be a sign of corrosion. Common Chevy prob.

Fuel gauge acting up!


There have been problems with the dash guage module that may cause this problem. Could also check the sender in the tank. If you can access the wires for the fuel sender you can check it with an ohm meter. The reading should stay relatively constant as long as fuel is not sloshing in the tank. If it is the sender, then a fuel pump module is in your future. There are aftermarket fuel modules available and many independant shops that could easily do this repair if the dealer is not inclined to help. If the sender checks out, then it could be the guage/module.

I have a 1998 chevy astro van rwd what would make the fuel gauge vibrate & sometimes spin all the way around The vehicle has had 4 different fuel pumps & a new vcm dealer part the problem is still...


I'm not a mechanic but i had the same problem for 2 years with my 98. I fixed it yesterday. You have to repair or replace the gauge. Start by pulling the trim piece off the gauges.(it just pulls off, no screws.) Then there will be four screws that holds the instrument panel in place. Remove the instrument panel. on the back of the panel there will be four more screws, this will give you access to the gauge. twist and pull the gauge out and replace or clean the contact plugs. I had to fill the gas tank up to make sure i got the indicator needle in the right place. (to make sure the tank was full when the gauge said full) This worked for me, hope it works for you. GOOD LUCK this only takes about 45 min. from start to finsh

2005 Pontiac Vibe Fuel Gauge stuck


The fix, unfortunately, is inside the fuel tank. You have to have the unit replaced. It's pretty maddening that something like that wouldn't even last 5 years. I have a 63 chev 1/2 ton that the gauge still works, and to my knowledge has never been touched.

Fuel gauge erratic


you will need to have the cluster (guages) repaired or replaced. (for the vibration). You will need to do this first.

They also have problems with the fuel level sensor in the tank, the contacts corrode and will give false readings. BUT this will not cause the guage to vibrate as you have described.

Fuel gauge seems to stick -- irratic readings


I've researched this problem thoroughly as all of my gauges on my '04 Bonneville GXP are producing erratic readings. The only two solutions are to replace the entire cluster which can cost in excess of $700 or replace the six "stepper" motors behind the cluster. Replacing them can only be done by deslodering the old ones and soldering in replacement ones.
