There is no fuse specific to the fuel gauge. The Instrument panel has two fuses that supply power to everything it has on it. The fuel gauge signal is received from the body control module which sends out a signal voltage to the fuel level sending unit. Depending on where the float in the tank in determines how much resistance the sending unit has. the body control module interprets the voltage value into a fuel level and sends a signal to the gauge.

If the gauge is not working the most common cause is the sending unit in the tank.

How do you fix the gas gauge? It won't read anything and it looks like it's on empty!

Courtney, Check the fuse first for the gage, if blown, replace. The gas tank will probably have to be taken out of vehicle to change the fuel sending unit. 1st Link shows how to test, other links will show replacement procedures.

What's your problem?fuel gauge, automatic driving lights not working

sound like your relays are faulty. under the hood on the drivers side is the fuse block. the fuel pump relay is #16 or #18, i dont remember which its been a while since ive looked at it. the fuse/relay diagram should be located under the top cover. also check the fuses located behind the panels inside the car. i believe the gas gauge and daytime light fuses are there also

First, Please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

Then, Yes, there is a fuse that powers your gauges. Actually, there are two of them. They are both located in the left wiring harness junction block. (On left side of dash) One is marked "IPC/BFC ACC" and the other is marked "IPC/HVAC BATT". Both are red 10 Amp fuses.

2005 Chevy Malibu the gas guage has stopped working. The guage will go from full to empty over and over. The gas cap light comes on and now my engine light is on constantly. How do I get this fixed for...

hey the reason your gas gauge is going from full to empty is that your fuel pump which is in the gas tank has a sensor that relays how much gas the tank has in it, the sensor is gone bad and will have to be replaced. And your engine light problem is probley due to putting gas in the car while it is running, my wife has a 2005 malibu and we have had the same problems with her car hope this was helpful

1998 chevy malibu fuse question

Sounds like you have a ground problem, i doubt its in the sending units as both gauges are acting strange work, seeing that electricity likes paths of least resistance one gauge could be grounding through another. Bad grounds wreak havoc on electrical systems.
