My gas gage doesn't work. It always say empty and that orange light never turns off . How do I fix this?


Your float in the tank that reads your fuel lvl has a hole, has filled with gas, and no longer floats. Remove the tank, and install new float.

Gas gauge does not work right after fill up it will read half to full then back to empty it is all over the place.


this problem is caused by the gas gage sending unit being defective, it is of course located inside the fuel tank.

Gas gage say e but there is planty of gas in the


Likely the float inside your gas tank has a hole in it and has filled up with gasoline causing it to sink....or it can be a wire disconnected....somewhere.....check your fuse panel first to be certain it is not a blown fuse...

I have a 1994 dodge ram 1500 slt. and the gas gage will not read the amount of gas in the gas tank and gas light stays on when I know the tank is full. leaving me wondering how much gas i run on sometimes....


The problem is with the sensor inside the gas tank since the method of indication used is by passing an electric current & the resistance to that current is a measure of level of liquid in the tank , i.e. the gauge consists of two parts:
  • The sensing unit
  • The indicator
The sensing unit usually uses a float connected to a potentiometer. As the tank empties, the float drops and slides a moving contact along the resistor, increasing its resistance. In addition, when the resistance is at a certain point, it will also turn on a "low fuel" light on some vehicles.
However if this float gets stuck to the bottom of the tank or a leak fills up the float making it sink to the bottom of the tank, thus always indicating 'E' for empty.........................sodeep

Gas gage isnt right it keeps floating


The Sorento gs tank is under the floor in the back seat. Flip the seat bottom's forward and pull open the Velcro to access the top of the tank. The fuel pump and sender may be accessible from the top, but you might be unlucky and have t remove the tank.
