Hi the reason the fuel gauge has stopped working is due to the sender in the tank packing up to replace this you need to lower the tank as the sender unit fits into the very top, you need to make sure their is no fuel in the tank as it will be to heavy to lower, its not the kind of job a novice can do.

please let me know if you need further assistance ok.

plz can you rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Fuse for fuel gauge Bentley gt


The fuel gauge is not fused separately from the rest of the gauges in the instrument panel, so unless the whole lot is dead the problem lies elsewhere. It is likely if the gauge doesn't work it will be the gas gauge sending unit in the fuel tank that is defective.

Fuel gauge sensor


Yes, the sending unit is in the tank. If you unplug the connector at the tank and ground the gauge's sender unit wire to metal, with key on, the dash gauge should jump to full or near full. This verifies the dash gauge is working properly, and the problem is with the sender unit in the tank. If the gauge doesn't move when grounded, then the gauge or wiring from tank to gauge is not correct.
Good luck.

The fuel gauge on my '91 Town Car doesn't work, at all. Can that be fixed by replacing a fuse?


Hello
If it was a fuse problem none of the gauges would work or the warning lights. The problem is caused by a defective fuel gauge sending unit that is located of course inside the fuel tank. To rpelace this part requires the fuel tank be dropped out of the car.

Fuel gauge not working properly. Says fuel tank full when fuel tank empty


Could be 3 thing - the gauge on the dash, the wiring or the fuel level indicator in the tank. All three are not easily accessible - the best test would be to measure the voltage on the level sensor on the tank.

It usually means removing the fuel tank and start measuring. If its ok, supply voltage to the lead towards the fuel gauge. If the gauge doesn't move it's wiring or the fuel gauge itself.
