Gas gauge staying at empty when tank is full


Spencer, Check all fuses ,plugs and grounding at the tank.The sending unit module, inside the GM's gas tanks were notorious for going bad in this err, when you changed it did you use a quality part? Also the fuel pump sending unit plug/wire harnesses were known issues, so much that replacement pumps would often come with replacement plug to splice into existing harness. Check the attached links,instruction and guides on how to trouble shoot fuel gauge/sending unit, Good luck

What would cause the gas gage not to work in a 93 bronco?


Nine times out of ten, rust in the gas tank has caused the sending unit to rust. WD-40 (large amounts of it), sprayed into the sending unit, usually fixes that.
Also, if I'm not mistaken, the 93 Bronco has a "Low Fuel Light" circuit right next to the gas gauge. If that circuit fails, the gas gauge will also fail.
Start by seeing if you have voltage to the gas gauge circuit with the ignition key on. If you do not, replace or clean the sending unit. If you do, replace the Low Fuel Light circuit plug-in.

Fuel gauge gmc


It could be a loose connection on the gauge or the fuel sending unit.
The fuel sending unit can get worn and have breaks in the contact area that is used to determine float position to send the fuel level reading to the gauge.
I suspect that you have problem with the fuel sending unit considering that the light is on. I am assuming that the light that is on is the "low fuel light". Check your connections at the sending unit if the connections are secure then I would suggest replacing the fuel sending unit.

Gas gauge quit working. Is there a fuse or sensor?


It sounds like your Fuel Level Sending Unit, usually located with the Fuel Pump inside the gas tank, has gone out. The Fuel Level Sending Unit sends the signal to your ECU, and then it goes to the Fuel Level gauge. Replace the Fuel Level Sending Unit and your gauge should be back to normal.

Gas gauge in the instrument panel not working


The number most common cause of this problem is that the gas gauge sending unit (consists of a float and a variable resistor) inside the gas tank is defective. To replace the sending unit in the gas tank, the tank must be removed from the car. The fuel gauge sending unit is sold as a complete module that also contains the electric fuel pump.
