It is the fuel level sender. the board will wear and cause it to lose signal; in certain spots. will need to replace the sender to fix problem. it will start registering once you burn some gas off. full is just where it drops out

Low fuel light comes on after i fill gas tank on 2001 gmc sonoma


Check to see if the panel fuel gauge is showing the correct amount of fuel. If that's ok then the fuel tank float may be bad.

I have a 2001 chevy suburban, while driving the gas gauge went to empty and the low fuel light came on. then it started working for awhile, it did this about three times and then the fuel registered empty...


YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE DOWN THE FUEL TANK AND REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP MODULE OR CHECK WITH THE DEALER AND SEE IF YOU CAN BUY JUST THE FUEL LEVEL RESISTOR IF YOU HAVE HIGH MILES JUST CHANGE THE MODULE IT COMES WITH THE PUMP AND ALL

Why does the gas guage not register how much gas is in the tank of our 2001 Chevy Impala?


This could be due to a faulty fuel sensor in the fuel tank try draining the fuel tank and replacing the sensor.

My Dad had a 1999 Silverado that did the same thing, it's a bad design. You wont run out but keep track of your miles, Then you know how far you can go.

2001 chevy silverado 4.8 gas gauge not working properly


Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

Low fuel rail pressure


Check your " FUEL FILTER " for clogging. Work backwards toward the fuel supply tank, Hope this helps.
