The float inside the gas tank is probably "soaked" and doesn't float properly anymore. It will have to be replaced to get the gauge to work properly.

Hi, when the petrol gets low you will either get a bleeping sound and a warning light or just a warning light when this light comes on you have about 30miles left in the tank before you run out so when this light comes on its a good idea to make your way to a petrol station

let me know if you need further assistance ok

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.

Fuel gauge acting up!


There have been problems with the dash guage module that may cause this problem. Could also check the sender in the tank. If you can access the wires for the fuel sender you can check it with an ohm meter. The reading should stay relatively constant as long as fuel is not sloshing in the tank. If it is the sender, then a fuel pump module is in your future. There are aftermarket fuel modules available and many independant shops that could easily do this repair if the dealer is not inclined to help. If the sender checks out, then it could be the guage/module.

Fuel guage stays on empty and low fuel light stays on,no other problems


You might have a leak in the float in the fuel tank sender unit (the float should sit on top of the fuel and feedback info to the gauge - the fuel gauge staying on empty might mean that the float is either leaking or it is stuck).

Petrol gauge stuck on empty and light constantly


Sounds like a broken gas tank sensor in the gas tank. The sending unit has probably gone out.

Petrol light reading empty when full.


you can check to see if your guage is getting electricity to it with a test light first and foremost, and then use a wire to directly give it electricity without it being connected to the harness itself and see if it moves too, if it moves with giving it electricity then it's not the guage itself... then check the wires at the tank to see if the harness is getting electricity there. if it is and the guage isn't moving when you wiggle the harness, drop the tank and replace the assembly as a unit that goes inside the tank that has the float attached that makes the guage work.
