SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

SOURCE: kia sportage fuel gauge unit not working ?

hi this sounds like it could be a couple of things, first the obvious have you checked the fuse? or it might be the relay in the fuse box might need replacing, and the fuel sender unit in the fuel tank, you also can check out the wires going to the sender unit, sometimes you can find these under the rear seat or in the boot/trunk area might be a simple case of one of the wires have come adrift there is a couple of things to check before having the sender unit replaced or the Gage..hope that helps

SOURCE: fuel tank gauge is not registering properly. after...

This is a very common problem with the Snate Fe. It is a scam so they can charge you $350 to replace a defective sensor. They know the sensors are defective and don't last long but it is a money maker so they have not done anything about it.

2003 Honda crv fuel gauge doesn't register full when filling up tank also twice while driving the gauge goes to empty and fuel light comes on


Could be the sending unit in the tank or the gauge on the dash.
A mechanic would test each component by disconnecting the harness at the tank.

Gas gauge indicator goes to empty when full


sounds like you may have a bad fuel level sender problem. as for the check engine light coming on and storing a fault code that is a separate issue.

My Kia Sorrento 2003 sometimes my gas light will come on even if theres a full tank of gas.I have watched the needle go down to empty but I know theres gas.


This is the float assembly in the fuel tank. This unit houses the fuel pump and should be able to be accessed under the rear seat. Auto zone has the assemblies for about $270 and comes with the new fuel pump encasedc inside. This will be the only way they can be purchased and should only take about 20 minutes to change. Very easy to do and this assembly will fix the issue. Save the old pump though as if a failure occurs in the future, you will have a pump to use that is good. Let me know if you need instructions for the repair.

2005 Chevy Malibu the gas guage has stopped working. The guage will go from full to empty over and over. The gas cap light comes on and now my engine light is on constantly. How do I get this fixed for...


hey the reason your gas gauge is going from full to empty is that your fuel pump which is in the gas tank has a sensor that relays how much gas the tank has in it, the sensor is gone bad and will have to be replaced. And your engine light problem is probley due to putting gas in the car while it is running, my wife has a 2005 malibu and we have had the same problems with her car hope this was helpful

i dont have a solution, but i have the exact same problem with my 2006 xterra. when i fill my tank, it appears as empty, then it takes a day or two for it to register as full. and not only that, ive ran out of gas twice because the gauge didnt register as empty, on the gauge it still registered as a quarter and 1/2!

I have the same problem on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi. Also the gauge is sometimesslow to register after filling. Maybe 5 minutes.My neighbor has the same poblem with his 1999 Durango? I think this is a job for a recall.

Full tank-fuel gague registers empty-need fuel light is on


There is a sending unit in the fuel tank that registers how much fuel there is. It is probably broken, giving you a funny reading on your gauge.
