    Usually when the gauge shoots way past full its a ground issue. check the black wire coming from the sending unit and make sure its got a good connection.

Had new fuel pump put in, now fuel gauge won't work, registers right when you start but goes to e immediately


I need the year--make--model. I can't look up any wiring w/o year--make--model.
Some vehicles will do a gage sweep when you first turn on. On some, the fuel sending unit is monitored by the pcm, the pcm will send serial data to instrument cluster for the fuel level gage. If the pcm detects a problem, the gage may default to empty.
It just depends on the vehicle.

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy with apparent electrical issues. It will sometimes start ok but not move. Other times it will start and drive just fine and then the Cruz won't work and all the gages are...


im not an expert but it could be your fuel injectors when they are not spraying enough gas you have to give it some gas for it not to die but the gages going out that could be a shortened fues or try giving it a tune up with seafoam you can look it up on youtube if you dont know how... just look up seafoam tune ups

Fuel gage fuse


The fuel gage shares the same fuse as all the gages, so if the fuel gage is inop and all other gages are working then you have another problem. The most common cause is that the sending unit for the fuel gage inside the fuel tank is defective, that is true 99% of the time in my 35 years of repair work.

Hello
This problem is caused by only thing, it is a defective fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace this part requires the fuel tank be removed from the vehicle.

Fuel gage is not working along with odometer checked for fuses did not find took apart dash found nothing there what should i check next. Tempature gage and oil pressure gage still work fuel gage is right...


when you pulled the top of the dash off did you check the cable connection to the insturment cluster. i had a similar problem where my gauges died individually including the spedo and tach. slapping the dash usually would cause the gauges to start working again, but that quit also and i had to tear the cluster out and check the conneciton. that fixed the problem.
