Fuel guage problems almost always are a ground issue...
as far as I am aware , there is no fuse specificly for the fuel sending unit in any Ford line of vehicles.

    What is a "ground issue?"

  • ZappaNut
    ZappaNut Sep 28, 2010

    where a ground wire has come loose or is no longer completing the circuit.

    Most instances are due to rust or corrosion and can be cleaned up and repaired..
    Covering the repaired surface connection with patrolium jelly ( Vasoline) will prohibit the reintroduction of corrosive deteriorazation.

The indicator of fuel shows empty doesn t move but gasoline tank is full


suspect the following

1. the fuse for the fuel guage.
2. the float switch in the fuel tank is defective or sunk to the bottom of the tank and cant move.
3. cable has come off at some point.

I hope this was helpful.

Speedometer ,fuel gauge not working


Check the instrument cluster fuse located underneath the drivers side steering wheel (bottom left side). Remove the fuse box cover lid and then flip the plastic fuse box cover over and you will find a small diagram showing where this fuse is located. Replace the fuel and instrument cluster fuse with a new one of the same number amp. Next, check the speedometer cable to see if it is binding or disconnected. This may be two separate problems, the fuel guage not working is a sign that the fuel sending unit inside the gas tank has failed.

Where can I find a fuse for the gas gage on a 2004 Chrysler T&C


The gas guage does not have its own fuse but instead gets its power from the "integrated power module" that handles power delivery to the entire instrament cluster and beyond. If the guage is in-op,[doesnt work] then you will need to have a few "hands-on tests run to verify if the sending unit in the tank[fuel pump module] is functional or if this problem lyes else-where, wiring problem, bad ground,ect,ect.. One hint would be if the low fuel level l;ight still functions without the fuel guage working,then your problem is NOT in the tank and very likely is in your dash-electrical or faulty guage.

Silverado 2000 5.3 4x4 gas gauge not working properly. Listen I have installed (2) new fuel pumps and fuel level sensor. I installed a insturment cluster. I ran a new ground wire from fuel pump to...


there are 4 wires at the sender - and 3 wires for the vapour sensor-the two heavier wires are for the pump and the lighter wires are for the guage-the lighter purple wire should have 5 volts on it-if not you may have a wire or computer problem-th guage is an input to the pcm(computor) under the hood and then is transmitted via comm. line to the cluster-if the rest of the guages work in the cluster you need to look at the pcm or wiring to the tank

Grand prix gas gauge not working


should be a grey wire going to the top of fuel tank connects to fuel guage / when the guage in the tank reads grounded it shows full , no ground it shows empty. if you ground that grey wire and the guage jumps to full then faulty guage if nothing maybe bad ground on the tank itself. the guages are a reostat like a tyco race car gun the more it moves the more it grounds .. good luck

Pontiac 2003 Sunfire Gas Guage doesn't work


Your needle moving from empty to full and then back to empty indicates that it is trying to set itself (most cars do this each time they are started). So, yes, there seems to be a problem with the sending unit that feeds information to your gas guage. Prior to cracking open your fuel tank, you might try tracking the wires from the back of your guage as far as you can towards the tank. Then track the wires from your tank as far as you can toward the guage. Watch for damaged wires and/or loose connections as you go.
