Possible bad guage, bad wiring, or bad sending unit. Check each one independently of each other, start with wiring first, then sending unit.

The gas guage and temperature guage in my 02 cavalier are not working properly. half of the time the temp guage stays below 40 and will not go up and when i fill up the car and start it the gas guage will...


Hi, take the connector off the temp sensor, turn the key on, and have someone watch the gauge while you insert a paperclip to short the terminals together inside the connector. If the gauge goes from one extreme to the other when the terminals are connected, the cluster is probably OK. It may just be that both sensors are bad.

Engine turns over, but will not start


gas line could be crushed or clogged up. but first try the battery might be dead try changing it, the starter could be messed up, or the ignition relay. try the relay before buying a starter. if at last the dont work i would have a code reader put on it and see if anything shows up the reading with cost u but will save some time

Gas guage shows full after charging batery


Did you remove battery cables while charging? Rmove and make sure grd is clean and tight Turn on the ignition, watch gauge. It should reset itself. If not, start engine and drive around the block. then make sure you park on level ground , then shut off the engine. Did that work? If not, disconnect the battery for a few minutes and hook it back up. Last but not leastm go put gas in your tank. It just might be full. Pranks have been known to happen. 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.

2001 pontiac sunfire wont start


I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.
