Where is the fuse for the fuel gauge

There is no specific Fuse for the Gauge Itself. There is a Fuse for the Fuel Pump and one for the Instrument Cluster.

If your Gauge is not working... 95% sure that your Float in the Tank or the Sending Unit has gone bad on your car..

Is there an access panel under the rear seat for replacing the fuel sending unit or the fuel pump in a 1995 Olds 88 Royale? I hope I don't have to drop the damned gas tank!

no access panel, that would be sooo easy. you'll have to drop the gas tank to replace the sending unit and i don't know how much research you've done,but i've never been able to buy just the sending unit by itself. i've had to buy the whole fuel pump.the more fuel thats in the tank,the heavier it's gonna be. have a jack handy,have a helper handy,and use jack stands! you sure don't want the car to fall on you.the main filler hose will have to come off and there is a return line hose that has to come off also.the fuel pump plugs into the tank on the top of tank,be careful dropping that tank,let it down easy! you can cause an electrical problem if you let those wires stretch. been there, done that. drain the gas out of the tank once you get it down,it'll be easier to reinstall and lighter,easier to put back into place. hope this helps,and good luck. thank you for choosing

Fuel pump needs replacing. Where is it located and how should I go about it?

Like pretty much all modern fuel injected cars, your fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Many cars require removing the fuel tank from the car, but a quick search suggests there is an access panel under the rear seat that might allow fuel pump replacement with the tank still in the car.

Need to determine where the fuel filter is located. Also, how to get to and possibly replace the fuel pump.

To remove the fuel pump, you need to either drop the fuel tank or remove the bed. The pump is in the fuel tank. Personally, I remove the bed, it is easier than dropping the tank, and, more often than not, the tank bolts breal off, or you damage the metal lines on the sending unit. Fuel filter? I NEVER change them unless the fuel is contaminated. It is in the engine compartment; down low. Note that if you DO change the filter, be prepared to replace your fuel lines. The filter metal and the line metal are slightly dis-similar, and "galding" is always possible. That being said, if you take the filter off of the line, 99 times out of 100 the threads on the line will stay on the filter. Not good.

No power to fuel pump. Power up to open circuit relay.

No power to the fuel pump is a common issue with Toyota Trucks. More than likely, the power wire at the top of the fuel tank sending unit is rusted off. If this is the case, you either need to drop the tank, or remove the bed to replace the sending unit assembly. I have done it both ways, but have found that removing the bed is easier than dropping the tank.
