Its either a bad ground wire to the sending unit. The sending unit itself. The gauge itself.
If you ground the wire that connects to the sending unit in the tank the gauge should show full. Disconnected the gauge should show empty. this will test the gauge. Most often there is a ground wire going to the sending unit which corrodes.

1993 chrysler new yorker. Fuel gage doesn't register. Low fuel light stays on even when tank is full.


More than likely the sending unit is not communicating with the fuel gauge so even when the tank is full the unit doesn't register it.There could be a short or a loose connection from the sending unit to the guage

Low fuel light on gauge doesnt work


lamp burned out, ?
but does the fuel guage work 100%
and at what tank level do you expect the lamp to come on.?
did you read the FSM on this, its covered
or alldata.com?
free.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

on this car, the PCM reads the fuel level then sets the fuel guage
and if the level (voltage from tank sender) is below a specific
voltage , it glows the lamp, low fuel
so if the fuel guage works, and the lamp is dead, the lamp is burned out. (or conn. bad to it)

Fuel gauge stoped working and the low fuel light stay on


The guage stopped working, because a code set , possibly due to a faulty fuel sending unit, or a wiring issue. This would neeed to be scan tested for the current code. After repair is made, and the code is cleared, the guage will work again. Thanks...

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?


  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.
