My 2000 Chevy s15 Rpm and Gas Gauge is not working


I didn't see an s15 in that model year, in my database?
If the speedometer works but the tach doesn't, I think something is wrong with instrument cluster?
GM has had a problem with fuel gage sending units. The sending units are not hard wired to instrument cluster, they send signal to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster, telling the cluster the gage settings.
It may be possible to use different size resistors in place of the fuel level sending unit, to see if fuel gage reacts properly to different resistors, if the gage reacts properly, then I think the problem is the fuel gage sending unit.

2004 dodge durango fuel gauge not working. Put gas in, gauge will not go up on the gauge in the dash


The sending unit in the fuel tank could be bad or the gauge in the cluster , or a wiring problem . Testing would need to be done to know for sure . Watch youtube videos on basic electrical trouble shooting . Fuel Gauge Tech How To Properly Diagnose Faulty Fuel Pump Sending Unit

1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working


It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

Electronic gas gauge Gives wrong reading, after replacing fuel pump and floater.


instrument cluster is just for monitoring. but on modern cars there can be integrated circuits to calculate the actual amount of fuel inside tank. so sender sends signals and dashboard decodes it and show the amount on gauge.

which car do you have? if it is a later model with such system you may need to reset related software to match with new sender unit on pump or floater. (dealer can do this for you)

for example if you have a new daylight driving lights(LKM) controller on new BMW's if you replace it with a new one you need to code it to match with your car. if not it wont operate correctly.,

But there is an exeption. when sockets are broken or connections are wrong, fuel and temp gauges act erratic. they jump, pulsate or dont work at all. before replacing anything more be sure that sender unit or whole asembly is the correct part for your car. second be sure that connection has been done correctly.

I have a 1964 mustang with a six cyl. all gauges dont work. put in a new oil pressure sending unit, has a new fuel tank with sending unit,new temp. sending unit wires are all hooked up. I need help finding...


There is a voltage regulator on the back of the instrument cluster printed circuit board. Chances are this has burned out if no gauges work. You'll need to remove the instrument cluster to get to it.

I have a 90's S-10 that I have some problems with. The gas gauge is not working at all and the electric odometer works from time to time. What could be the problem and is there anyway to bypass it?


There isn't anyway to bypass it. You will to replace cluster to fix the odometer. As for the gas gauge it could be either the cluster or the sending unit in the tank. It is usually the sending unit in the tank but you need to fix the cluster anyway so I would start there.

Fuel gauge dont work i put a new fuel pump in it and it still do'nt work 1997 blazer


Was the wire harness replaced from the fuel sending unit to the frame, it's a good practice to replace the wire harness when the sending unit is replaced. The wires are know to break and cause sending unit issues from weak fuel pressure to faulty gas gauges.
The other possibility would be a faulty connection to the stepper motor in the gauge it self or just a faulty stepper motor that would need to be replaced. You can do a search on Ebay for stepper motors for your fuel gauge which runs for around $15.00 which is much better then $400.00 for a new cluster if it is and bad fuel gauge stepper motor.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.
