I just fixed that problem in my 87 Toyota pick-up. My fuel gauge showed FULL all the time. The sending unit in your fuel tank has probably croaked. I had to drain the fuel tank, remove it, and try to remove the screws that hold the sending unit in. The screw heads ALL snapped off due to them being 21 years old. Ended up having to buy a new fuel tank, as we couldn't get the broken ones out of the tank. Found an aftermarket new tank for about $275 at Advance Auto. Sending unit is only avaliable from Toyota for about $125.

Fuel gage not working on a 1998 vw jetta


i believe he means how can he fix the fuel gauge not working problem not the running out of gas. since we already know why that happened (didnt know he was out of gas due to broken fuel gauge) theres only a few things it could be. the gauges power source or ground could be corroded or broken, the guage itself is broken or the sending unit is worn out or the wiring is faulty or broken to it.

I cannot read if there is any fuel in the tank,how do i repair and also can you quote me how much would anyone typically pay to fix this problem. also my speedometer does not work either but all the lights...


There are a few issues the gage not working could be, a bad fuel sender, a bad gage or a sort in the wires.

The speedometer is most likely a bad cable at 1 end or the other or the gear at the transmission. Or the speedo cluster itself is stripped.

When replaced the fuel send unit the fuel gage sits on empty


Try grounding the gauge wire at the tank. If the gauge and wiring are good the gauge will go way past full when you do this.
