Question about 2005 Pontiac Vibe
Hello, This is the only problem I've had with my 2005 so far. I had 1/4 tank of fuel and added $5.00 bucks. The fuel gauge shot all the way to full.I know for a fact that I have less than a half tank of fuel. When I tried to add more fuel today, it spit it out as if the tank were full. Checked all the fuses and they were ok. What do you recommend.
Sounds like you jumped it straight to the battery post,You need to reset the computer,To do this,Unhook the battery for 3 or 4 minutes and then hook it back up.This will reset it and as long as you didn't fry a sensor or relay,It should be fine.
Please take time to rate this fixya

When gauge is pegged at full, usually means a bad ground. Check wires at fuel tank, wiggle around, maybe one came off. The bad news is it is hard to get to without removing the tank. Sometimes you can reach arm in and get to them. Also check body ground at read of van.

it is one of two things the fuel gauge in the tank is bad or the gauge in the dash is bad...I would check with the dealer to see if they have seen that problem before...they maybe a recall for that problem...

I've researched this problem thoroughly as all of my gauges on my '04 Bonneville GXP are producing erratic readings. The only two solutions are to replace the entire cluster which can cost in excess of $700 or replace the six "stepper" motors behind the cluster. Replacing them can only be done by deslodering the old ones and soldering in replacement ones.
