The sender is more likely to fail. If you disconnect the sender electrical connector near the tank, you can ground the sender lead to see if the gauge goes to empty, indicating that the gauge and wiring are OK.

Just got saab 900s 2.0 petrol non turbo on a 98 plate ,is the old motor with dizzy cap ,fuel gauge stuck on full and no temp gauge ,whers best place to start look


The fuel gage is most likely the fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank, the temp could be wiring or the temp sending unit on the engine, try that first.

Why will my gas gage stay at full on my 2001 excursion


The gauge is faulty or the sending unit in the fuel tank is bad ! There is away to test it, find a wiring diagram an locate the two wires at the fuel pump sending unit connector . Go to radio shack or some other electronics store an buy some resistors of differing resistance , I'm not sure of resistor sizes , I will look it up on my ford service info system. If you jump the right resisters into the fuel sending unit circuit you can make the gauge show 1/4 - 1/2 - 3/4 an full. If it move to those positions with the right size resistors it's not the gauge but the sending unit in the gas tank ! Diagnosis of Stuck Fuel Gauge Is it Gauge or Sending Unit

The fuel gauge on my 01 caravan 2.4l reads full when running, and only reads 1/4 when off, any ideas what it could be?


Many cars do this to discourage gas theft. If the car fuel gauge only shows 1/4 full, a potential thief may not bother to steal 2 or 3 gallons of gas. This is very normal.

If the gauge is stuck on full and you are sure the tank isn't full, you have a sensor sending wrong information to the dash gauge. Most cars now have a single fuel pump and sending unit that can be replaced by a mechanic.

Fuel gauge Stuck


The most common way to find out is to test both components.
The sending unit in most vehicles grounds the gauge on the dash.
You would unplug the sending unit - pump harness at the tank and ground the sending unit wire. If the gauge climbs up to full the sending unit is at fault.
You could also measure resistance in the circuit in the tank when the tank is close to empty and after filling it up. The resistance should be different each time.

2006 Dodge Durango - Fuel gauge stuck on full, and won't move? What's wrong?


Either the circuit is shorted to ground, or shorted to power.
The sending unit in the tank provides ground to the gauge.
I would disconnect the harness at the tank and see what the gauge does. You may need a new sending unit.

Fuel gauge stuck on full


pos lead is used to measure ground...that means that the power goes through the fuel level sending unit and the ground lowers the power out from the unit....I would replace the fuel level sending unit.

Fuel gauge problem


sending unit on the fuel pump in the tank is stuck, and needs to be replaced. its expensive, but that will fix your issue. its the housing around the pump that has the float arm on it. you can try to free the float arm by removing your pump assembly, but cant guarantee its any good after being stuck
