Is there a check engine light on? is there a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) stored in the PCM (powertrain control module)? This issue is most likely not related to the Body control module due to the starting system is also affected.

Gas gauge reads 3/4 when full and temp. won't come up past the cld mark. could this be a fuse issue?


Sounds like it could be an instrument cluster fuse or a possible ground issue. fuse would be easier. Did you have anything added recently such as a stereo or remote car start system?

Gas gauge goes past full when you turn on


Could be a short to ground on the positive wire leading from the fuel sender.

Doorlock won't unlock / Gas gauge stuck


Do the doors unlock when you shut the key off? Also unhook the purple wire to the sending unit in the tank, Gauge should read empty. Ground the purple wire, it should read past full. If it works this way, replace the sending unit in the tank.
