Question about 1985 Toyota Cressida

2 Answers

Cressida 1985 Fuel guage no longer gives warning light when tank almost empty. Guage remains on "full" and only strats operating when about 20 litres have been used. Is a wiring diagram available? Have a feeling it may be a faulty earth connection somewhere under the dash.? Thanks Albert

Car of year 1998, when tank is full or medium from fuel, guage shows empty. When tank is completely empty, the guage shows full. Guage is of digital type with the bars. What can I do ? Any tests I...


Digital gauge also gets its input for fuel level from a float in the tank. Here the culprit can be that float because the error is systematic i.e., full on empty and empty on full/half. If the reading was erratic then it was something to do with IC in the bars display panel.

Just filled the gas tank in my 2006 f-350 turbo diesel super duty (6.0), started the truck and the guage showed a full tank. Drove down the road about 1/10 of a mile and the guage dropped to dead empty...


A loose connection on the sending unit could cause the problem but also moisture in the tank in cold weather could also be a factor in which i would add fuel line antifreeze to a full tank of fuel..........Hope this helps you out.

Ireplaced both wheel speed sensors due to abs


I had a 2001 silverado 2500 h.d. with the same problems. I took it to a gear head and he found that the emergency brake cable was loose causing it to trigger the warning light on the dash. As far as the low fuel guage I took it back to the gear head and he found that the float in the gas tank was broken causing the low fuel light to come on. The float wasnt a big deal until I lost track of mileage and ran the tank dry.

The fuel gauge is'nt working.I tryed to ground it


When testing a fuel guage you should disconnect the wires to it,guage should read over full,ground the float wire,turn off key then turn back on should read empty.You have to cycle the key for guage to move.If still inop the wire is broken in the harness between the tank and the dash.Voltage on the float wire is low.When tested with a test light it will barely light the light and pulsate.This test indicates the wiring is good.

Petrol light reading empty when full.


you can check to see if your guage is getting electricity to it with a test light first and foremost, and then use a wire to directly give it electricity without it being connected to the harness itself and see if it moves too, if it moves with giving it electricity then it's not the guage itself... then check the wires at the tank to see if the harness is getting electricity there. if it is and the guage isn't moving when you wiggle the harness, drop the tank and replace the assembly as a unit that goes inside the tank that has the float attached that makes the guage work.
