    I havr this same problem but I've noticed it only does it when the gas tank is completely full.

    I have exactly the same problem: Sporadic outside temperature display (at times accuate and other times inaccurate). Now that I had the fuel pump replaced, the guage runs (for the most part) in reverse! When I fill up, the display shows empty. As I drive, it looks as though I have more and fuel fuel in the tank. Thanks God th odometer works or I would run out of gas!

I have the same exact problem. The numbers are fluctuating and unreliable. I refill the tank based upon my estimated.

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

Digital gas gauge reading incorrectly and inverted


sounds like a faulty sender unit or your just realy low on fuel before you spend any money on repairs try filling the tank up with fuel as if its been low for a long time the sender unit in the tank may be sticking the fuel will lube it and may start working again

CAR switches itself off when fuel is on querter tank


check the calibration of the sender unit as may actually be on empty. Find out the exact capacity of the tank and add a known amount of fuel and see where the gauge reads. For example if the tank is 60 ltrs or 20 gallons add 5 gallons and see where the gauge reads. 5 gallons in 20 gallons should read 1/4 or in your case after the engine stops should read 1/4 full. If it reads 1/2 then the sender is out.

Car of year 1998, when tank is full or medium from fuel, guage shows empty. When tank is completely empty, the guage shows full. Guage is of digital type with the bars. What can I do ? Any tests I...


Digital gauge also gets its input for fuel level from a float in the tank. Here the culprit can be that float because the error is systematic i.e., full on empty and empty on full/half. If the reading was erratic then it was something to do with IC in the bars display panel.

91 deville fuel gauge flashes "E"


It seems that you are low on fuel based on you saying 70 miles in the range gauge. If this problem does not happen with 3 gallons of fuel or more then it is normal. The range is calculated on your average MPG and gallons of fuel in the tank. When the car gets to around 2 gallons it does not chance miscalculating your miles to empty and leave you on the side of the road. At this point he tank will read "E" to let you know it is time to fuel up. The flashing "E" is simply cadillac's way to get your attention that you are in fact low on fuel and need to take action. Hope this helps.
